- First North American Printing.
- Set in the universe of Michael Moorcock’s world famous Eternal Champion novels.
This is a novel set at the very heart of Michael Moorcock’s multiverse, in Karadur, city of metal, steam, and ancient families, the mighty clans of the metal. In six days, Max Silverskin, thief and trickster, must discover the secrets of his heritage or die from the witch mark – the silverheart – which will devour his heart. Lady Rose Iron, daughter of the leader of the powerful Clan Iron is thrown into an edgy alliance with Max as she searches for the secrets that could save the city’s future. Captain Cornelius Coffin, head of the clans’ security forces, is in love with Lady Rose and obsessed with capturing Max. And there are others, in Shriltasi, Karadur’s underworld twin, who know the prophecy which says that only Max Silverskin can save both realms.
In Silverheart, Michael Moorcock and Storm Constantine have combined their talents to produce a novel that is both surreal and gothic.
“This collaboration brings out each author's strong points: the elegant and highly
visual imagination of Moorcock (the Elric Saga) and the lush and evocative
storytelling of Constantine (the Wraeththu trilogy). Fans of both authors and gothic fantasy aficionados will enjoy this tale of intrigue and rebellion set in a unique
double city on the edge of change. Highly recommended.”
“One of the delights of a collaboration such as this is that the authors' strengths meld so beautifully. Moorcock has long proven himself able to pile wonder on wonder, and Constantine is certainly no slouch in the imagination department. And both are masters of mood.... a wonderful, magical creation....if you know and appreciate Moorcock's work, you will most likely enjoy this one.”
"One of our topmost novelists."
—Kirkus Reviews on Michael Moorcock
"Storm Constantine is a tremendously impressive novelist."
"Storm Constantine is a mythmaking, Gothic queen, whose lush tales are
compulsive reading. Her stories are poetic, involving, delightful, and depraved.
I wouldn't swap her for a dozen Anne Rices!"
—Neil Gaiman, American Gods
