That's a fine choice - though The Sword In The Storm (1st in the Rigante series) is my favourite Gemmell book.

Seconded!

Have to agree with the majority here. Start with Legend. Classic book. (Just started playing Diabolo 3 last week, my barbarians name? Druss!!)
My favourite David Gemmell series would have to be Lion of Macedon and it's sequel Dark Prince. Superb. Need to buy them again on Kindle and re-read.

I second Legend. It's his debut and so so much fun. I also loved Morningstar which is a take on the Robin Hood myth.  Ask a mod to link you to the review that was on the main site a year or two back.
I agree with Gariath, those are two of my favorite books but you can't really go wrong with any of his books.

What are Gemmells stories like? I saw the name occasionally be mentioned in recommendations, but don't know anything about him.

They are blood and guts sword and sorcery tales. Usually a grizzled hero and a small force up against insurmountable odds. Lots of battle scenes.
