Michael Moorcock has the power to draw us into a fantasy world like no other. You won't be able to put this book down as you travel through the universe with the main character Elric. HIs emotional journey is spellbinding. Some sequences are spot-on awesome (fire beetles, tons of corpses blow apart via sorcery); and many are silly and wildly coincidental (a cameo from Whiskers the winged, fighting cat, really?).

Revenge of the Rose is written in a different style than the original series, which is no surprise, considering each of the 6 books are different in their own right. Revenge has some of the MOST descriptive scenes about Elric I have read yet. The scene in the Gypsy Nation whene Elric creeps down in the early morning to painfully ingest Dragon Venom gave me chills. I would not recommend picking this book to start your reading in Moorcock's universe.

The soul of Elric's father is tortured and suffering. To free it, Elric must face the princes of hell, and put all of his trust in one woman - the Rose.
The Revenge of the Rose. Moorcock wrote a rich and emotional without being long winded; the narrative is also infused with twists and turns and some hints of melodrama that ideally works well with this type of tale. Hardcover Paperback Kindle. The other thing that you will find amazing about this novel is the concept of dream couch which the Melnibonean rulers make use of.
