Description

Fantasy legend Michael Moorcock's heroes of the multiverse have been lauded as some of the most iconic characters of fantasy. Among them, Dorian Hawkmoon is one of the most loved. In an alternate far future, Hawkmoon is pulled unwillingly into a war against the armies of the Dark Empire. Antique cities, scientific sorcery, and crystalline machines serve as a backdrop to this high adventure.

This omnibus collects the first two novels in Moorcock's acclaimed Hawkmoon series.

The Jewel in the Skull

Dorian Hawkmoon becomes a puppet co-opted by his arch nemesis. He's been implanted with the Black Jewel, whose power can control his every decision. But in the city of Kamarang, Hawkmoon discovers the power inside him to overcome any control, and his vengeance against the Dark Empire is filled with a fury that knows no relent.

The Mad God's Amulet

After withstanding the power of the Black Jewel and saving the city of Hamadan, Hawkmoon set off for Kamarang. But the journey is beyond treacherous. Hawkmoon seeks out the peaceful city of Soryandum, which holds the power to transcend the confines of time and space. This power now rests in the hands of the Mad God. Hawkmoon must rip this amulet from the neck of the Mad God if he hopes to save the city of Kamarang and free his friends and his one true love from the Dark Empire's relentless wrath.

Review quote

The greatest writer of post-Tolkien British fantasy. "Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author of The Yiddish Policemen's Union" If you are at all interested in fantastic fiction, you must read Michael Moorcock. He changed the field single-handedly: he's a giant. He has kept me entertained, shocked, and fascinated for as long as I have been reading. "Tad Williams, New York Times bestselling author of the Otherland series" The vast, tragic symbols by which Mr. Moorcock continually illuminates the metaphysical quest of his hero are a measure of the author's remarkable talents. "J.G. Ballard" A giant of fantasy. "Kirkus Reviews""
