Tragedy has pushed Elric and Stormbringer even closer together and it is not for the good. Elric has finally given in to his blade and together they have made a pact of blood and violence, swearing to forsake all and destroy anything that gets in the way. Despair and hopelessness will mold the shadows and devour souls in this dark and embittered volume. ( )

Excellent entry in the saga, finds Elric at his darkest hour and the prologue offers hints toward more darkness still to come. Book one Elric at his most Melnibonean and his greatest despair so far. Book two his hopes are dashed again and book three a return to form as he defeats a great enemy and is once again thwarted in vengence. ( )

To the memory of Ted Carnell, editor of New Worlds and of Science Fantasy,who published all the early Elric stories and and whose suggestion I first began to write the series. A kind and generous man who gave me much encouragment in my early years and without whom these stories would never have been written.
First words
From the glassless window of the stone tower it was possible to see the wide river winding off between loose, brown banks, through the heaped terrain of solid green copses which blended very gradually into the mass of the forest proper.

Book description

"We must be bound to one another, then. Bound by hell-forged chains and fate-haunted circumstance. Well, then - let it be thus so - and men will have cause to tremble and flee when they hear the names of Elric of Melniboné and Stormbringer, his sword. We are two of a kind -produced by an age which has deserted us. Let us give this age cause to hate us..."

Imrryr, the dreaming city;  Yyrkoon, the hatred usurper; Cymoril, the beloved - all had fallen to the fury and unearthly power of the albino prince and his terrible sword. And Elric faced at last the fate that was to be his in this haunted era: that he must go forth, sword and man as one, and havoc and horror would be forever at his forefront until he found the Purpose tag was as yet obscured to him...

THE WEIRD of THE WHITE WOLF is the authorised, revised and complete novel of the third book of Elric.
