How many times is Elric going to just give up and "accept death"? It seems like there's a pattern of playing the victim with this guy... "Uh-oh, something has gone wrong, so I'll just sit here and wait to die"... Yeesh!

This story, like the first in the series moves along quickly, so don't expect a lot of character depth or a strong plot. If you read it with the expectations of a short-story or fairy-tale, you probably won't be disappointed.

Classic sword and sorcery with the tragic hero Elric of Melnibone-Elric, last of the emperors of a once mighty land, self-exiled bearer of the sword of power called Stormbringer, found a ship waiting for him on the misty seacoast of an alien land. Boarding it, he learned that he was to serve a strange quest side by side with other heroes from other times, for this ship sailed no earthly waters and time, for it, was flexible . . .
