Synopsis

The Hyena and the Hawk is the conclusion to Adrian Tchaikovsky’s epic fantasy trilogy, Echoes of the Fall, following The Bear and the Serpent.

‘A classically brilliant fantasy writer’ – Paul Cornell

The unmaking of the world has begun.

From the depths of the darkest myths, the soulless Plague People have returned. Their pale-walled camps obliterate villages, just as the terror they bring with them destroys minds. In their wake, nothing is left of the true people: not their places, not their ways. The Plague People will remake the world as though they had never been.

The heroes and leaders of the true people – Maniye, Loud Thunder, Hesprec and Asman – will each fight the Plague People in their own ways. They will seek allies, gather armies and lead the charge. But a thousand swords or ten thousand spears will not suffice to turn back this enemy. The end is at hand for everything the true people know . . .

A classically brilliant fantasy writer, a pusher of boundaries, great storyteller
It's addictively brilliant! The protagonist is vivid and sympathetic – and I love both the story and the world Adrian has created
Brilliantly conceived and executed . . . Readers will be captivated
