Any David Gemmell fans out there. He is one of my favourite fantasy authors. I think he has a knack for creating interesting heroes and villans and giving them difficult situations to deal with. Some of my favourites include Legend White Wolf The Rigante Books Waylander Druss, Skilgannon, Connevar and Waylander are all great heroes, despite having very different personalties and temperaments. I didn't really like the Hawk Queen books or the Stones of Power series, I just couldn't get into the characters.
