Publisher's Summary

The ancient races, the Vadhagh and the Nhadragh, are dying. By creating Mankind, the universe has condemned Earth to a pestilence of destruction and fear. 

Prince Corum is the last remaining Vadhagh. He sets out on a crusade of vengeance against the forces that slaughtered his family and his race, to challenge the unjust power of the puppet masters of Man: the Lords of Chaos. Along the way he will barter with his soul for the limbs of gods to repair his mutilated body and will encounter a member of the very race who caused the mutilation, the irresistible Rhalina....

Performed by Nanette Savard, Chris Genebach, Tracy Olivera, Nick DePinto, Evan Casey, Todd Scofield, Scott McCormick, Andy Clemence, Thomas Keegan, Ken Jackson, Bob Payne, Eva Wilhelm, Matthew Keenan, Richard Rohan, Patrick Bussink, Terence Aselford.

Excellent

I've been a fan of Moorcock's work for sometime and this presentation is excellent. I usually don't like audiobooks presented with a voice cast etc but this is the exception. Thoroughly enjoyed this and I highly recommend.

Captivating

Stepping back in time. I read this book when it first came out and it has been a favourite and has been in my collection since then. Well worth listening to.

Not as good as the unabridged

Still a great story and well acted (with a few awkward choices. I highly recommend it since none of Moorecock's novels are on here unabridged and this is a decent replacement

Read the book instead.

I'd rather listen to paint dry.

No sooner had I started listening than I gave up. I will be returning asap...once my purchase has been cleared. Pronunciation and accents have totally ruined the idea of listening to any more Michael Moorcock books.

A good starting place for the Moorcock Multiverse

Thoroughly enjoyed this read/listen. The story itself unfolds at a pretty quick pace and gets into the action before you know it. Nanette did a fantastic job as the main narrator, while I also enjoyed Chris Genebach as Corum. As someone who has recently started reading Elric of Melniboné stories, I felt like this was a great contrast to Elric's character.

Much like Elric, Corum is the last of his race, blessed with powers from gods old and new. But unlike Elric, Corum laments the death of his race, who were goodly, learned folk. If you like the idea of a bit more of a sympathetic protagonist in the Moorcock-verse, I recommend checking this out!
