Publisher's Summary

High in the wooded, peaked mountains of Skeln, the woodsman, Dakeyras, and his beautiful daughter, Miriel, live a life of harmonious solitude.

Unbeknown to them, a group of grim-eyed, bloodthirsty warriors stalk the mountains. Men who have never known defeat, to whom revenge and torture are meat and drink. For 10,000 in gold they are eager to kill the woodsman.

Battle-hardened warriors all, they have no fear of this task - but they should have. For Miriel is a woman of fire and iron, skilled with bow and blade and taught her skills by one of the deadliest killers of all time: her father, Dakeyras, better known as Waylander the Slayer.

Beautiful story missing last chapter

Waylander II has long been one of my favorites. The story is Gemmell at his best, and this performance is excellent. However, the final chapter and epilogue are missing from this adaptation. The story ends on a flat note at the end of chapter 19. I highly recommend the original book, or the Kindle version. While I enjoyed this adaptation as far as it went, without the ending, I was very disappointed.

Do not buy: Incomplete recording

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This would be a great book, if it was complete

Any additional comments?

The recording ends with several chapters still to go in the book

This audiobook is incomplete

What disappointed you about Waylander II?

The audiobook finished before the story ended. I have read the original book and it does not end like this - with about three strands of the story just left hanging

What was most disappointing about David Gemmell’s story?

The story itself was a great story up to the point where it just cut off.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was fine - very good in fact

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

You need to check the master recording - the last part of the story is missing

Made for each other

I get the impression that Sean Barrett loves reading these books, his performance brings so much emotion that it couldn't be otherwise. I've listened to other stories that may well be better than this one, but the combination of Gemmell and Barrett brings something that's greater than the sum of the parts. For those that enjoy hero and sword fantasy, this is really something special and highly recommended.

The return of a hero.

This story, as the name implies, is a continuation of the story of Waylander the assassin.
It explores the mind and motivations of the character as well as filling in some of the backstory of the intervening years of the novels.
Gemmells usual mix of action and deep plot is evident here.
Well worth the time for a listen.

Great read!

I thought Waylander 1 was good but Waylander 2 pushes it to the next level. But you will need to read these books in order. On to book six

Another great book

Wow, I had problems putting this book down. From the beginning the characters took off running with no fear.
On to the next.

Final Chapters Restored

Audible are aware that this book is missing its final chapter and therefore incomplete.
PROBLEM FIXED. THANK YOU.


However I have always felt that this is one of Gemmells finest. His character archetypes and story telling really come together in this story. In my opinion Waylander II is a superior story to the the first book and it has always been one of my 4 favourite Gemmell novels. Legend, The Legend of Deathwalker, Waylander II & Morningstar.

I am very happy that Audible have listened and added the final chapters to this book.
