This review is from: The King Beyond the Gate (Drenai Tales, Book 2) (Mass Market Paperback)
Good if you like that sort of thing. This is fantasy, not science fiction (some of these tags are misleading). There is something in these novels referred to as the Source, which is also revered as a god, and it's used like the Force but without its telekinetic qualities. These are fun stories that espouse sacrifice and death before dishonor. There's no "live to fight another day" in Gemmel's world. The Source is their magic (astral projection, mind-reading, remote viewing, psychic communication, etc). Anyway, I enjoyed it. Some epic fantasy battles require a huge investment of time. Fortunately, these read fast.
