Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book 3 of the increasingly enjoyable Hawkmoon series. This picks up directly after the cliffhanger ending of Hawkmoon: The Mad God's Amulet (Eternal Champions (Tom Doherty)). These books are like an episodic TV series, you MUST start at the beginning.

These editions are nice, they feature fantastic cover art and sporadic ink illustrations throughout. Since each story is only 200 pages they could've easily bound these together into an impressive 600 page epic. But pay it no mind, this is a great tale being told here.

By A Customer on August 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
Castle Brass and its occupants are transported into another realm; leaving behind no viable opposition to the overwhelming armies of Granbretan Empire. Led by Meliadus their military swarms all over the continent in conquest. At the same time, Meliadus pleads with Granbretan King-Emperor Huon to find Count Brass, Hawkmoon and the others in order to set an example. Huon says no, but Meliadus seeks other means to find and kill Hawkmoon.

Granbretan bard Elvereza Tozer also traveled to the same realm as the concerted occupants of Castle Brass. He used a Yel Mountains crystal that he obtained from Mygan the hermit. Count Brass, Dorian Hawkmoon and others fear Meliadus will learn of and seek out the crystals to follow them into this world and other worlds slaughtering the innocent. Hawkmoon and D'Averc return to Londra to learn what Meliadus knows of Mygan. Once assured their enemy remains ignorant, they head to the cave of the hermit with Meliadus in pursuit. Using a crystal, they escape to Amarekh where Mygan suggests Hawkmoon seek his Runestaff by going to Narleen, find the Sword of the Dawn, and then head to Dnark.

The third action-packed "The History of the Runestaff" Hawkmoon fantasy switches locales but employs the same prime cast members who starred in previous two novels (see The Mad God's Amulet and The Jewel in the Skull). Hawkmoon and D'Averc seem to be in trouble throughout as they try to elude the obsessed maniac chasing them while also wanting to insure the Dark Empire cannot enter other realms to conquer. Ironically though Hawkmoon is the series hero, D'Averc provides the drollness to the plot. Fans of Michael Moorcock will appreciate the latest reprinting of the Hawkmoon saga.
