Prince Corum, the last of the Vadhagh, driven half-mad by the slaughter of his people, swears vengeance on their killers, the Mabden. But then he falls in love with a Mabden woman and must confront the fury of the Lords of Chaos who fear that he is the hero who could tip the balance in their cataclysmic war with the forces of Law and free his world from Chaos’s terrible grip.
This volume brings together the three books of Corum, The Knight of the Swords, The Queen of the Swords and The King of the Swords, Moorcock’s evocation of a time of magic, phantasms, cities in the sky, oceans of light and wild flying beasts of bronze which is one of the pinnacles of modern imaginative literature.
