Series Info:The first book in the Clockwork Vampire Chronicles series.
They came from the north, and the city fell.It is a time for warriors, a time for heroes.Kell's axe howls out for blood.
Ferocious fantasy from a real-life hardman come to claim the post-Gemmell world.
The land of Falanor is invaded by an albino army, the Army of Iron. A small group set off to warn the king: Kell, ancient hero; his granddaughter, Nienna and her friend, Katrina; and the ex-Sword Champion of King Leanoric, Saark, disgraced after his affair with the Queen.
Fighting their way south, betrayal follows battle follows deviation, and they are attacked from all quarters by deadly albino soldiers, monstrous harvesters who drain blood from their victims to feed their masters, and the twisted offspring of deviant vachine, the cankers. As Falanor comes under heavy attack and crushing invasion, only then does Nienna learn the truth about grandfather Kell ... that he is anything but a noble hero, anything but a Legend.

Praise and Reviews:
"One of Gemmell's most redeeming qualities as an author was his ability to write about fighting and war to such a degree that you almost felt like rushing through his novels to get to those bits. Kell's Legend fight scenes live up to this quality and elevate the novel way above the standard fare. Kell's Legend is a novel of power and scope, able to stand as a worthy successor to the Gemmell crown. 5***** "- Science Fiction & Fantasy Books
"Andy Remic may have seemed like an unlikely writer to snatch up Gemmell's battleaxe and continue to carve the fine tradition that the great man started, but he does a surprisingly good job of it. Kell's Legend is a rip-roaring beast of a novel, a whirlwind of frantic battles and fraught relationships against a bleak background of invasion and enslavement. In other words, it takes all the vital ingredients for a good heroic fantasy novel and turns out something very pleasing indeed. If you can keep an open mind then you may get a real kick out of one of the most surprising novels of the year."- Speculative Horizons
"Kell's Legend is an iconoclastic melange of themes that incorporates devices from various genres... Moorcook/Gemmell heroic fantasy, steampunk, and horror. It is an exciting, brutal novel, soaked in testosterone and paced like a roller coaster. The sex and violence is visceral and the action is non-stop."- Red Rook Review
