    Worth reading -- another layer of Elric is revealed

    For fans of Elric, the story might be a little more confusing than those who haven't read anything else by Moorcock. The book ties up a lot of loose threads that we didn't even know were loose in the first place. To understand some of the names dropped and some of the main characters, it helps to have read The Dreamthief's Daughter, the Warhound and the World's Pain, and the City in the Autumn Stars.

    fascinating Elric tale

    The multiverse consists of multiple realms each linked in such a way that an impact on any world affects all in some manner. Oona was a person a person who walked through the realms until she met Baron von Bek and decided to stay in his world where they marry and have children. One day on vacation her husband is kidnapped by Native Americans and taken to their realm Kakatanawa, a pyramid of gold, which lies on a lake of ice. Elric, sorcerer and emperor of Melnibone must find his magical sword Stormbringer or he, his friend Moonglum and perhaps Melnibone will be destroyed. He enters a dream, which is another person¿s reality where he learns that his sword is in Kakatanawa. He temporarily joins forces with the Pukawathers (pygmy) tribe who claim the sword is theirs stolen by White Crow. He enters the realm just as Oona has turned into a magical Buffalo who must fight one of the elementals. Ulric von Bek is brought by the people of Nihrain (they made Stormbringer) because they desperately need his help. The Nihrain tend the tree of the multiverse and they want Ulric to deliver a certain sword to Elric. All three warriors are working to keeping the tree of the multiverse healthy and free of poison so the multiverse doesn¿t perish. Michael Moorcock has never written a book this reviewer doesn¿t like. His point of view of the multiverse, the interconnection of the worlds within it, the people who travel between the realms performing daring feats of bravery make his novels totally enthralling. In THE SKRAYLING TREE, the connection between von Bek and Elric, who are both linked through Oona, makes for a fascinating tale. Harriet Klausner
