Death Angel's Shadow - Karl Edward Wagner

Three Kane stories, with the first the longest piece. Generally under siege we find the long lived warrior.

Death Angel's Shadow : 1 Reflections for the Winter of My Soul - Karl Edward Wagner
Death Angel's Shadow : 2 Cold Light - Karl Edward Wagner
Death Angel's Shadow : 3 Mirage - Karl Edward Wagner

Kane, trying to shake off pursuers in frozen weather is helped to shelter by a woman.

However, her father's manor will come under assault by a werewolf.

A crusading general:

"For several years he had marched forth against petty tyrants, evil wizards, robber barons, outlaw packs, and monsters human and inhuman. Always he had vanquished evil in the name of good, shackled chaos with law. And now he rode against Kane, a name that had always fascinated him, but which he had half regarded as legendary, until he began to realize the truth that lay in the fantastic tales of this man."

Trapping Kane in a town he knows, with only 9 healthy men left after taking out an ogre stronghold, not the best of ideas.

A vampire woman is a little peeved about Kane's lack of normal human drainability.
