Eternal Champion: Elric #2

Michael Moorcock

4 of 5 stars

 

I completely, thoroughly enjoyed this novel.
3 connected stories that deal with murder, spirits and magic. Nobody is safe from Elric and Stormbringer, nobody.

We get to see the first real hints of how Stormbringer might not be just a sword and how Elric is becoming reliant on it.

On the down side, we get some extremely slimmed down existential philosophy, but thankfully nothing like on the scale of Steven Erikson.

The blend of pathos, eros and good old horror are perfectly balanced with the heroic element of good vs evil.
