The Hyena and the Hawk is the third book in Adrian Tchaikovsky's epic fantasy trilogy, Echoes of the Fall, following The Bear and the Serpent.
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.

Is this the final of a triology?
Like the two books before this story has great characters. Maniye Manytracks, Hspric, Asmander, Loud Thunder, they all have a crucial part to play facing a terrifying threat from across the seas. I havn't read the shadows of the apt series but people have told me thre might be crossover implications which I therefore didn't catch. While still a great action packed primeordeal story it has some science-fiction weirdness which distracted me a little. Maybe I should read the shadows of the apt series to get a better picture of the overarcing background? Final verdict: the weakest title of the series so far but still great.
