SWORD AND SWORDSMAN...BUT WHICH WAS MASTER?
STORMBRINGER, the mighty runesword, hung far away in the city's armoury. ELRIC, haunted albino warrior-king had sworn never again to touch the enchanted blade. But he needed it now as never before. Evil supernatural beings had abducted his lovely wife Zarozinia. He would sacrifice the world itself to rescue her. But would STORMBRINGER, which seemed to have a life of its own, allow it?
He was fated to ride out again over spectral landscapes, with the sentient blade he loved and hated...which had slain enemies - and claimed comrades.
