A Stunning World of Moorcock-Believe
Dorian Hawkmoon, the invincible, the Eternal Champion, the Duke of Köln, is dying from melancholia. His wife Yisselda, beautiful daughter of Count Brass, has perished in the battle of Londra – or so evidence suggests. But somewhere in the caverns of his soul Hawkmoon knows otherwise, and some think him so mad that he will never again leave Castle Brass.
When Katinka van Bak, Regent of Ukrania, arrives to seek his help in saving her Bulgar Mountain State from an army of alien demons, voices from centuries past tell him that the key to Yisselda's fate now lies in his grasp.
He begins his journey with her, a journey that is to take him through time and space and previous incarnations, where as Queen Ilian of Garathorm he is once again the Champion Eternal of the Black Jewel, friend of the enigmatic Jhary-a-Conel, and fabled destroyer of the Dark Empire.
