Description - Hero In The Shadows by David Gemmell
The ruined city of Kuan-Hador reeks of dark mystery. Shunned by brigands and merchants alike, it is home to fearsome things - slavering white beasts who possess an insatiable desire for death and destruction. The sorcerers and their foul minions will soon be free to wreak a horrible vengeance upon all that lives. Only a rag-tag group of unlikely heroes are prepared to stand against them- Kysumu, the Rajnee swordsman; Yu Yu Liang, a humble ditch-digger with dreams of glory; Keeva Taliana, a warrior woman as fierce as she is beautiful; and the mysterious Grey Man, a man with a blood-drenched past known throughout the lands of the Drenai as Waylander, the Slayer.Now, to defeat a timeless evil, an ancient riddle must be solved, and Waylander, the prince of assassins, must kill a man who cannot die...In Hero of the Shadows, David Gemmell returns to the savage lands of his acclaimed Drenai Saga in an action-packed tale of malevolent sorceries reborn - and the brave men and women who dare to stand against them.
