Hawkmoon and Yisselda were reunited, but their children were yet lost, somewhere over the far stars. So Hawkmoon, Eternal Champion, began the most desperate quest of his many lives – that for Tanelorn.
Eternal city and high seat of the Holy, where mystery mingled with despair, and where truths awaited the innocent, Tanelorn had for centuries been assaulted by the tyrants of the Dark Empire.
Through past ages and future dreams journeyed Hawkmoon, with the Runestaff as his grail and the sad captains and melancholy warriors of the star-steered death-ship for company. It was a troubled voyage and there were times when the Champion longed for death. With him was the enigmatic time-lord Jhary-a-Conel, and the ghost of the queen of the southern ice watched and waited for Hawkmoon to find his world's end...
