Cover launch: A brand new look for David Gemmell’s Drenai series

David Gemmell needs little introduction; widely regarded as Britain’s ‘king of heroic fantasy’, he wrote more than thirty novels in his lifetime and his books have sold millions of copies worldwide.

While he sadly passed away in 2006, Gemmell’s books remain hugely popular, with a new generation of readers discovering his grand tales of adventure, heroism and sacrifice.

To celebrate Gemmell’s legacy, we’ve reissued the classic Drenai novels that orginally earned him his reputation as a master storyteller. All six novels have gorgeous new covers courtesy of our designer Sean Garrehy and the talented illustrator Tim Byrne, who together have perfectly captured the grittiness of Gemmell’s books. In addition, two of the biggest names in modern fantasy – Brent Weeks and Joe Abercrombie – have given their seals of approval.

If you’ve not yet experienced the thrill of a David Gemmell novel, then now is the perfect time to find out what you’ve been missing. These reissues will be hitting bookstore shelves in May and June.
