I first read the two series of books concerning Michael Moorcock's character Corum back in the late 70's / early 80's and I loved them back then.

I've been recently reacquainting myself with Moorcock's writing and I've been waiting for this one to be released for Kindle. I have to say that I really enjoyed it again. It's quite a dark book but the atmosphere suits the tale. However, I'd recommend reading the first Corum series (the Sword trilogy) before embarking on this series. These books are quite short by comparison of today's standard but they tell the tale in a straight forward manner without a lot of superfluous filler.

I can see why I liked the tales of Corum in the past.

This trilogy again stars Corum, Prince of the Silver Hand. It is also an adaptation of the mythological conflict between the Tuatha De Danaan and the Firbolg, with Corum of the Silver Hand standing in for one of the heroes opposing the Firbolg, due to the similarities.

Here, Corum and the Mabden's enemy is the Fhoi the gods of the Cold Folk, and they have to deal with war, and the terrible, biting cold that steadily grows worse and worse.

Don't fret that this book is out of print. Most of Moorcock's works are currently being reprinted by White Wolf. This book is on that agenda. Be patient. This is one of the books of the second Corum trilogy, which is possibly the darkest series Moorcock has written to date. I give this book a low rating because I didn't really enjoy reading these books, not because of any lack of imagination or talent on the part of the author. If you're into dismal fantasy, this is as good as it gets.
