Winged demons gather, silent and unseen, above the city of Usa, their talons long and sharp. Their purpose is clear, as is the prophesy: Upon the deaths of the three kings, the demon riders of the Krayakin will become flesh, free to slake their thirst with human blood -- and the stench of evil will cover the land.

Two of the kings are already dead. For the prophesy to be fulfilled, spreading carnage across the world, the demon lord must sacrifice the third king: Queen Axiana's unborn child.

When Emperor Skanda disbands his army, the pregnant queen takes flight, pursued by the Lords of the Undead. All hope lies with three ancient heroes. Though discarded by the emperor, they are still Drenai soldiers: Bison the giant, Kebra the Bowman, and the great swordsman Nogusta -- the demon lord's greatest foe. But will these warriors -- once the best in the land -- be enough to stem the tide of gruesome horror that threatens to envelop the world?

About the Author

David Gemmell was born in London, England, in the summer of 1948. Expelled from school at sixteen, he became a bouncer working nightclubs in Soho. Born with a silver tongue, Gemmell rarely needed to bounce customers, relying on his gift of gab to talk his way out of trouble. This talent eventually led to a job as freelancer for the London Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, and Daily Express. His first novel, Legend, was published in 1984 and has remained in print ever since. He became a full-time writer in 1986.

A book that does not contain any of Gemmell's major heroes, but instead focuses on three aging men, warriors all. Nogusta the Swordsman, Kebra the Bowman, and bison. This hearkens back quite a lot of Quest for Lost Heroes, but the underlying theme is a bit different.

The warriors set out to rescue the unborn child of a woman, and end up confronting demons and a man they have taken over, in a heroic last stand.

I loved this book, not just because it was well written, but because most of the heros where old men, and that just made the whole book cooler. like hero in the shadows this book involves demons, but in a more horror book way. Unlike other books by gemell this is book is a kind of mild horror, and i think david gemmell did it extremly well. this is a must read for gemmell fans because it is awsome!
