Download Midnight FalconOne Giant Leap knew of his thoughts and flaws guilts and fears and shames Inew him better than my family or close friends and I couldn t stand to see him die I closed the book while he was riding to his death and I considered never reading the last pages It was so tempting As long as I didn t read he would still be riding sad and with a heavy heart but aliveBut I did read and I cried and mourned and grieved My eyes are filling with tears again as I m writing this hide spoiler This author is amazing I was told to read this series by Orson Scott Card at a seminar of his He said to read it if you want to understand strength of character He s right The characters in these books are faced with such heart wrenching decisions it makes you want to cry David Gemmell writes his characters with such power As young Bane tries to make something of his life he must overcome not just physical obstacles but ones of friendship and loyalty as well The main part of the story is driven by Bane s lust for vengeance but there is an underlying moral that carries him through to the end There is such truth in the morals presented here such dilemma and revelation that I dare say anyone could learn a thing or two about love and forgiveness from this novel True love like caring for all fellow men not romantic love which can be found anywhere and is rarely spiritually uplifting This book is a gem rare indeed The writing is amazing and the action is superb Everyone must read this series I didn t HAVE to read this one the way I did the first but in some ways I liked it better It starts 20 years after the events of the first book which put me off a bit at first since the first was leading up to showdown that is now over That was a bit of a let down but Gemmell Midnight Falcon continues the tale of the Rigante which began in Sword in the Storm Love honour blood and betrayal all play out in this heroic fantasy by the Sunday Times bestselling author David Gemmell perfect for fans of Joe Abercrombie Duncan M Hamilton and Conn Iggulden For anyone who appreciates good heroic fantasy David Gemmell's offerings are mandatory Time OutGemme. ,
T fifteen but he s been outcast by his Rigante tribe as his mother was outcast when she bore Connavar s illegitimate child Though the resemblance between father and son is without uestion right down to the odd coloured eyesBane s only friends are the witch Vorna and right down to the odd coloured eyesBane s only friends are the witch Vorna and son Banouin whom Bane protected as they grew amongst the Rigante Bane sets out on a journey at Vorna s reuest to protect Banoiun on his journey to Stone Stone shows great similarity to our ancient Rome though here the renowned general Jasaray and his armies are the enemy As are the deadly Apocalyptic Cartography knightsnown as the Crimson PriestsIn the journey to Stone alone we see much of what Gemmell did so well the depth of character s and the distinctly different complex personalities and hearts of people The conversations between Bane and Banouin are a prime example of this Bane is an outcast a warrior and a iller but he relishes every day he lives and will give his life for those he loves Banouin well he wants to be away from savages like his friend and The Rigante Banouin thinks but does not act he moans and lives in regret and bitterness he thinks Bane s life is savage and foolish and that the people of Stone are civilized Partly because Banouin s father his namesake was from Stone and a revered general until he left to join the peaceful Rigante There are way too many twists and turns in this book to mention and I wouldn t spoil that for you But Bane finds love he also finds what it is to be loved He finds an enemy he hones his warrior skills and he finds himself Banouin is also on a journey and the Seidh Goddess The Morrigu eeps making timely appearances There are surprises in store for Connavar too and many other charactersThis book is a journey and not just for one man It s a read of characters and people not unlike many we might now This book in my opinion is one of Gemmell s best It s also the second best in the Rigante series It can be read as a stand alone book though if you ve read
Sword In The Storm prior to this book it will fill in much of the background to thisIn The Storm prior to this book it will fill in much of the background to this as a side note I ve read this book at least fifteen times over the years as I used to rotate all my really good reads I still do with some This was a little better than the first one if that could be possible having in mind that the story here starts some 20 years from where it has been left in the previous volumeWith strong characters a lot of drama illings adventures and surprises a small amount of magic and gladiators fights also let s not forget the big scale battles in short with a lot of things going on in here this was a delight to readFive stars without a doubt I really really liked the first book in this series I didn t think a second book could beat it But it did I LOVED this book I laughed and I cried Numerous times It was very well written with realistic and fully developed characters that you can t help but feel like you Heart and Soul / Almost Heaven know personally The Plot and events are presented vividly and are rapidly paced The book is interesting with every single page with numerous twists turns and surprises The story is jammed full of all aspects of human emotion and human frailties So far this series are some of the best books I have read in many years.
