I tear threw quite a few books. Two authors I want to mention to you guys are Dave Duncan and David Gemmell.
I prefer Gemmell if the book contains the character Druss in them but Duncan’s books are quite good. I like how both "Chronicles of the Kings Blades" (Duncan) and the novels of The Drenai Saga (Gemmell) don't hold to a strict "sequel" formula.
Anyone else read these?
