Really finished now: Book 8, The Revenge of the Rose.
Elric Saga Part III was not excellent, as the previous books, but we can see our anti-hero Elric again sucking souls and punishing the minions of Chaos.
Book 8 starts with Elric butchering the Haghan'iin Host; then we see another consort for some time, Countess Guyë;
another companion of the eternal Champion is introduced in the saga, Ernest Wheldrake, the red-headed, English Time-traveller: is he one incarnation of Moonglum? His remarks are unf

I read these books a long time ago, and so I only remember them hazily. But the character of Elric stands out in my mind. I loved the story of this albino prince traveling all of the world and through space and time, never quite sure what he is hoping to find but unable to return to his own people. Great series.

The two books in this collection are a bit odd. They were written after the original Elric saga, so like the Star Wars prequels you not sure what to think.

At the same time, they are much better reads the a good chunk of the original saga. Yes, Elric is still mopey and on a quest for vengence and a purpose in life, but at t

I thought it was good. There were parts that stimulated my imagination for sure, and other parts that just came across as ok for me. I do like the Elric character, and these stories ... especially the concepts of the dream realm are pretty interesting.

The evil, doom-shrouded hero. A nice break from all those upbeat fantasy books. Tragedy stalks Elric's life, and when you have a sword that sucks people's souls, sometimes your friends souls, you can see why.
