Horse Clans Series #3
  • The third volume of the Horseclans series by Robert Adams follows in the same vein as the first two books. Plenty of gore and mayhem fill the pages as the characters literally stride across the land slaying their enemies who are soundly portrayed as evil foes. Unlike the first two volumes, this one jumps much farther ahead in time, at least a full century or more after the events in the second volume, Swords of the Horseclans.

    The story that begins with this book introduces us to two of the most loved characters in the entire series, Bili Morguhn and Geros Lahveetos. Both will be featured in seven of the series’ books which makes them the characters with the most continuity in the series other than Milo, Mara, and Aldora who are often peripheral characters in some books. Either way, Bili and Geros caught the attention of readers and helped drive the series sales to new levels. The writing is the same as always. Adams never changed his style in the entire run of the series nor did he change his lecturing about things he didn’t like in the modern world.

    I really didn’t mind the lecturing when I first read these books, but years later it is pretty obvious that Adams was doing so. This book really brings to the forefront his personal bias against religion as well which was never far from the surface of any of these books. The core audience Adams wrote for, the 16 to 30 year olds ate these books up. I still like to read them because they’re pretty simple, vividly descriptive, and evoke the thrill of reading good old fashioned pulp fiction. I also am disregarding the sexism, violence, and other craziness found in the pages as unrealistic. It is in essence escapist literature.

    I will say that Adams had some interesting fantasy plot points. This particular storyline expanded the Horseclans world significantly over its run. I loved the series for the story more than anything. The early 1980s was a great time for apocalyptic genre books and this series fit the bill in a good way. What would happen next was something that Adams, even though he was very predictable, had a way of revealing with a twist. Sure, you knew the good guys would hack their enemies to death, but Adams had a way of doing it that satisfied you deeply. He also was good at evoking emotional responses with some of the descriptive language. That is the hallmark of a good author regardless of genre.

    Revenge of the Horseclans was pretty juvenile and still is, but it does have some qualities for reading. I particularly liked this volume as it set the stage for more books with the same characters and made it feel like a bigger serial. Adams bounced around in the Horseclans timeline a lot and this story arc was the longest other than the concept of the Horselans itself. If you want Tolkien, this is going to disappoint you. If you want carnage, battle, and some gritty gore strewn pages to wade through, this is right up your alley.

  • Book #3 introduces one of Adams's most memorable characters, Bili Morguhn--or as he will later come to be known, Bili the Axe. Bili is a descendant of the Morguhns (Morgans) from Texas, who were part of the original Horseclans tribe accompanying the Undying High Lord Milo Morai on a 20-year trek from the Sea of Grass (Great Plains of North America) to the East Coast. This story takes place many generations later after Milo has begun organizing both Horseclansmen and conquered Ehleen (Greeks) into a powerful new city-state Confederation. Former foes have mingled and interbred and now live as mercenary Free Fighters or as nobility based in either cities or in their great halls amid their ranches and farms.

    The Thoheenks (Duke) of Morguhn lies dying, and his eldest son Bili has been summoned to Morguhn Hall to claim his inheritance after years of soldiering in the Middle Kingdoms (former Philadelphia). Eighteen-year-old Bili's arrival, however, co-incides with a rebellion fomented by members of the old Ehleen nobility and their priests, who wish to regain the lands and wealth once theirs alone. With other forces of the Confederation busy putting down rebellions in neighboring duchies, Bili and his troops are hard pressed to defend the Morguhn lands. What Bili doesn't realize is that he and his enemy Lord Myros are being used as pawns in a game of bloody intrigue. Before the battle is over, Milo will once again confront another of the devious witchmen from the J. and R. Kennedy Center, which lies between Tallahassee and Gainesville, Florida.

    In my opinion, this is one of the best novels in the Horseclans series with a clean, linear storyline and a memorable protagonist. Despite his age, young Bili (much like Alexander the Great) soon proves to be a natural leader of men, a formidable warrior and strategist, and a powerful far-ranging mindspeaker. The prairiecats, at least those who have chosen to remain in the east, make an appearance, and Bili's big, black savage war-horse Mahvros is a personality not soon forgotten. The end of the novel sets up the 4th book in the series, A Cat of Silvery Hue.

  • Read "The Coming of the Horseclans" first to get a background for this series. This is a 'what if' future fantasy series.

  • Like all the Horseclan novels

  • I remember discovering this series while I was in the army, with one of the Novels about Milo Morai's budding Empire in the Carolinas after a war had knocked out civilization. Milo was the Immortal Emperor, a man who had lived for longer than even he could remember. I lost touch of the series for many years, then picked up this novel about Billi the Axe, strong young Duke to be coming home to treachery and murder, and his efforts to stop a revolt from happening in his own Duchy. Part of the attraction to the stories were the settings in familiar places with strange names. Milo is in this one as well, running a medieval army with modern concepts.

  • It has words!!!
