   Elric, the albino emperor, has ruled Melniboné for millennia - a feat made possible through magic and various herbs that serve to strengthen and prolong his life. However, Elric's empire is crumbling before him and now his envious cousin and prince of Melniboné, Yyrkoon, plots to claim the Ruby Throne for himself. 

     Yet when Elric's people come under the threat of a pirate attack, Elric believes that he can once again restore his authority and regain their faith by defeating the pirates. However, the true cost of this task will force him to reveal his allegiance to the dark Arioch, the most dominant of the Lords of Chaos...

Review:

"For fans of not only Game of Thrones but also the God of War games
and even Lord of the Rings" - Pissed off Geek

"The art in this book is as unique and memorable as Elric himself. 5 out of 5" - Kabooooom

"Gorgeous artwork...[recalls] Moebius, Dune and even a dash of Blade
Runner. 4 out of 5" - Comic Bastards

"Beautifully illustrated, it’s a terrific addition to the comic book incarnation of Elric” - Scoop

“The finest Moorcock adaptation" - Paradox Comics Group

"a masterpiece" - Sci Fi Monkeys

"Each page is gripping and packed with detail. 5 out of 5" - Pop Mythology

"This is the Elric adaptation I’ve been hoping to see for some time now. 5 out of 5!" - Comic Spectrum

"Books of this high a caliber can certainly turn the tide for a genre that isn’t garnering as much attention." - Pop Culture Network

"An incredible fantasy graphic novel to behold - from start to finish." - The 9th Blog

“Elric has never looked, sounded and been better!”  - Comics Trash 

"gorgeous art.... a MUST-HAVE in anyone’s collection!" - Comics Sinners

"As impossible as it may sound, Blondel has (together with his collaborators) actually made the Elric saga darker than ever before!" - Power of Pop 

"a perfect opportunity to finally delve into the world of the albino emperor" - Geeks of Doom 

"If you have never read anything by Michael Moorcock then this maybe a good place to get yourself acquainted with a world many people have grown to love." - Flickering Myth 

"nothing short of breath-taking" - Mass Movement

"the art is gorgeous"
- 8CN

"an engaging read and visually stunning" - Digital Spy

"I thoroughly enjoyed it and finished it all too soon. I would recommend it as an ideal place to start the Elric story if you have never read them but wondered what all the fuss is about." - SFF World

"Magnificent is pretty much the only word I can use for the artwork. From the costume art to the look of the city, the level of detail is stunning and really does Melinibone to life. 9/10" - The Cult Den

"This latest tremendously dark and deeply engaging graphic extravaganza again raises the creative bar and proves why Elric is the leading star of fantasy fiction." - Comics Review
