Melniboné: no longer the mighty empire that once dominated the world but a waning kingdom, dependent on trade from the human nations which have begun to challenge her power.

On her Ruby Throne sits the albino Elric - sorcerer and warrior. A melancholy philosopher at odds with his destiny.

As fleets of marauders probe the defences of the Dragon Isle, Elric faces treachery within his own court - from Yyrkoon, the cruel and ambitious cousin who dreams of usurping him.
