Publisher's Summary

The Great Bear will descend from the skies and with his paw lash at the ocean. He will devour all the works of Man. Then he will sleep for 10,000 years, and the breath of his sleep will be death.

The prophecy had come true. The world spun. Tidal waves lashed the planet, and a new ice age dawned. The few survivors of a once-great empire struggled to rebuild, to hold their ground against the rising barbarian tide. Then two moons appeared in the skies, unleashing a terrible evil that threatened not only the new empire but the survival of the world itself.

Read by Charles Armstrong.

Excellent Gemmell

First read this book as a paperback many years ago and I am slowly repurchasing the collection on audible.

this is an excellent book of a failing once epic race and it stands alone, not part of a series.

Would recommend it to any fan of this genre, while not as soon heavy add some Gemmell books is a great stirring deep tale.

Excellent as usual

One of my favourite David Gemmell books. The very best of heroic fantasy. I cried or joy and sadness. I can listen to his books again and again.

Gemmel as always at his finest

Gemmel never dissapoints.

voice acting was pleasant and well voiced. subtle character changes make it easy to tell one character from another when he voices them.

excellent experience all round.
