      Back side

      Elric of Melnibone, proud prince of ruins, last
      lord of a dying race, wanders the lands of the Young
      Kingdoms in search of the evil sorcerer Theleb K’aarna.
      His object is revenge. But to achieve this, he must
      first brave such horrors as…

      the Creatures of Chaos,
      the freezing wilderness of World’s Edge,
      the gold-skinned Kelmain hordes,
      King Urish the Seven-fingered,
      the Burning God,
      the Sighing Desert, and
      the terrible stone-age men of Pio.

      Although Elric holds within him a destiny greater
      than he could ever know, and controls the hellsword
      Stormbringer, stealer of souls, his task looks
      hopeless – until he encounters Myshella, Empress of
      the Dawn, the sleeping sorceress….

      THE VANISHING TOWER is the authorized, revised
      and final novel of the fourth book of Elric.
