The Dreamthief’s Daughter

Michael Moorcock


Master fantasist Michael Moorcock returns to his most famous character, Elric of Melniboné, in an astounding novel of revelation, magic and intrigue. The author introduces Count Ulric von Bek, the last member of the von Bek line and Oona, the Dreamthief’s Daughter, who together with Elric seek to save the multiverse from the machinations of Prince Gaynor.
       As the Nazis begin their big play in World War II, an imprisoned and beaten Ulric von Bek fights to keep his mystical black sword Ravenbrand from his power-mad cousin, S.S. Major Gaynor von Minct.
       Elric falls during Lady Miggea’s siege of Eternal Tanelorn, in a plot that will bring the forces of both Law and Chaos to bear against the Balance.
       Only the combined souls of Ulric and Elric can triumph, as Stormbringer and the Holy Grail fall into Gaynor’s and Hitler’s hands, and the schemes of the mysterious Oona might be the last chance to save them all.
       This is an epic adventure moving from the concentration camps of Germany, into the wondrous underground land of Mu-Ooria, to a besieged Tanelorn, on to the point of origin of all things — the Grey Fees, and beyond that, to the shores of Britain. Moorcock fans will be delighted as the author takes them on a Grand Tour of his own personal wonderland — the Million-Sphered Multiverse.

The titles, contents, and order of the works appear, for the first time, exactly as Michael Moorcock has long intended, making these the most definitive sets of these books ever made available. It also has an introduction by Paul Di Filippo and new artwork by fantasy artist Brian LeBlanc.
