"Knitting together many of the major characters and stories in Michael Moorcock's unparalleled creation of the Eternal Champion, this new novel depicts Elric, the White Wolf, at the end of his thousand-year dream quest, where he will be caught in a breathtaking chase across eras, worlds, and realities..." "One summer day in Yorkshire, young Oonagh von Bek finds herself on an extraordinary and perilous adventure. The earth outside her family home breaks open, and she is chased into the subterranean realms of the Middle March by a pair of dangerous men." "Her grandmother and grandfather - Oona, the Dreamthief's Daughter, and Elric, the last sorcerer of Melnibone - follow, encountering other important avatars of the Eternal Champion and seeking Elric's son. Fanning out across the infinite realms of existence and time, they hope to stop Oonagh's would-be kidnappers, Gaynor the Damned and his allies. All paths will converge in the dark empire of Granbretan, a land of cruel tyranny and wicked magic, where defilers and murderers plan the ultimate arrogance: to re-create the entire Multiverse - and replace the Cosmic Balance with themselves as eternal overlords."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

Elric in the modern world (with a cell phone and an e-mail address), plus talking humanoid foxes, multiple alternate realities and thousands of swords. In short, all you could ask from Moorcock. Better than this, only a psychedelic trip ( )

Overall I thought this was good, though it had some weak moments. The main character who narrates the majority of the book was a bit unbelievable for me, but perhaps some of that was supposed to reflect the fact that she was recounting the story many years after it had happened.In some ways this book helped to more clearly define the whole Eternal Champion theme that has carried through so many of Moorcock's books, and I thought the quality of his writing was generally quite good. However, as with most of his later books I found it to be less passionate than the early Elric or Corum books, leaving me feeling a bit uninvolved.I was torn between a 3-star of 4-star rating on this one, and decided to round up simply because I was, in the end, glad that I read it.

It was an ending. I really liked how he tied the end of this series and book to the begining of the "The Eternal Champion". Enhancing the no begining or end of the multiverse, merely beginings and endings. ( )
