Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a fourteenth story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.

It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

It’s actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way. With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves.

Business is good . . .

Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

Druss, Captain of the Axe, was the stuff of legends. But even as the stories grew in the telling, Druss himself grew older. He turned his back on his own legend and retreated to a mountain lair to await his old enemy, death. Meanwhile, barbarian hordes were on the march. Nothing could stand in their way. Druss reluctantly agreed to come out of retirement. But could even Druss live up to his own legends?






  1. I read Monster Hunter International awhile back, It’s a fun urban fantasy with lots of action. I reminded me of the roleplaying games my friends and I used to play when we were younger. Keep in mind that it’s his first book and a bit long. His later stuff is a lot more polished. I read Son of the Black Sword and it was fantastic. Also, he seems like a cool dude. I met him at a signing in San Diego last year.

  2. Hi! I would seriously suggest dropping anything else you are reading in order to read Legend. David Gemmell single-handedly reinvented heroic fantasy in the UK in the ’80s: his style is deceptively plain, his action scenes are among the best I’ve ever read, his characters are very well developed, and he has an uncanny knack for making grown men cry. I believe everyone who claims to love fantasy literature should read the all the Druss books and the Waylander series. Not only are they excellent, but their influence on writers like Abercrombie is quite obvious. You are really lucky, to able to read Legend for the first time! Read it now! You won’t regret it.
