Peppered throughout with little observations full of wisdom on the cost of war, these books are well written and enjoyable. This brings together all the threads of the previous books as the Orthlund, Fyorlund and Riddin people all march against Sumeral's second coming and into the mist shrouded land of Narsindal.
Hawklan finds some unexpected allies in his quest into Narsindal and the "small and ancient" thing prophesised by the dying king in book 1 which destroys Sumeral in the end may not be what you think.
This series of books called "the chronicles of Hawklan" form the centrepiece of Roger Taylors world spanning series of fantasy novels. There are a number of other books which feed in an indirect way into this same story. All the books come together for their conclusion to the overall story in "the return of the sword" which in reality can be said to be the true end to The Chronicles of Hawklan.
While these books could be classified as sword and sorcery they are well written with likeable and well drawn characters that you feel sympathy for. The political systems of all the lands involved are well thought out and they all have a history dating back to at least the first war against Sumeral. Even if you don't read The Return of the Sword, this book provides as satisfying conclusion to this sequence of books.
