1979’s Master of Hawks, while it can be read as a stand-alone, is also the first of two novels in Linda E. Bushyager’s Master of Hawks fantasy series.
The tiny kingdom of York embodies all the virtues one might wish in a magical feudal society. Too bad for York that it is next on the Taral Empire’s shopping list. York has fewer soldiers and fewer sorcerers than Taral. York may have the edge in cunning but that will not be sufficient.
The man known as Hawk may be York’s best hope, and not merely because of his telepathic powers.
