Library Journal - Library Journal
Moorcock returns to his most popular sword-and-sorcery series with a vengeance as he fills in the blank spaces in the life of Elric, the albino sorcerer and doomed ``Eternal Champion.'' Elric's quest--to rescue the soul of his long-dead father by cheating the Lords of Chaos--leads him across time and space through the many worlds of the multiverse as diverse forces oppose him at every step. Moorcock's strength as a writer lies in his bold imagery and cosmic vision as well as in his ability to depict characters that are both larger than life and genuinely appealing. Essential for aficionados of classic heroic adventure.
