David Gemmell - The Jerusalem Man (angol)
It is three hundred years since the world toppled on its axis, bringing tidal waves and earthquakes to swallow centuries of civilization. In the years that followed, as mankind struggled painfully to conquer a savagely reshaped world, new evils rose from the wilderness: brigands and killers, war-makers and thieves. From these wild lands comes a rider, seeking a lost city. Jon Shannow, called the Jerusalem Man, desires only peace...but the times demand that he wage war. For the edges of the Plague Lands have spawned a new terror: Abaddon, self-styled Lord of the Pit, and his Hellborn army, with their terrible weapons and obscene rituals. Only one man dares to challenge them: The Jerusalem Man.

David Gemmell - Midnight ​Falcon
Bane ​the Bastard is the illegitimate son of the Rigante king who men called Demonblade. Born of treachery, Bane grew up an outcast in his own land, feared by his fellow highlanders, and denied by the father whose unmistakable mark he bore-the eyes of Connavar, one tawny brown, the other emerald green. Hounded from the country of his birth, Bane found acceptance across the seas-only to have it stripped away in an instant by a cruel and deadly swordsman. Now fighting as a gladiator in the blood-soaked arenas of the Empire, Bane lives for one thing: revenge. And he pursues his goal with the same single-minded determination that won his father a crown. But more is at stake than a young warrior's quest for vengeance. The armies of the Stone are preparing to march on the lands of the Rigante. The fate of human and Seidh alike will be decided by the clash of swords-and by the bonds of twisted love and bitterness between a father and a son . . .

Also aboard are a young, impressionable youth who has never been to sea, and a deadly Mykene warrior, intent on revenge. Their journey to the fabled city will encompass storm and near shipwreck, personal tragedy and a bloody sea-battle whose bloody aftermath will haunt Helikaon and his companions for the rest of their voyage.
