After vanquishing two of the sword-rulers, in this book Prince Corum moves on to the most powerful; the King of Swords. He is accompanied again by the eternal companion of champions Jhary-a-conel. Corum also receives the help of other heroes, which readers of Moorcock's other Eternal Champions series will recognize.
This book brings the trilogy to a satisfying conclusion, but again the pacing is so fast that it has the effect of making the struggle against Chaos seem to easy for Corum, as he seems to get out of jams as fast as he gets in them, usually with supernatural help.
Corum Jhaelen Irsei, ever resourceful, has taken out the Queen of the Swords, and now has to face the most powerful of this suit, the King.
He is most definitely not without help and resources, as here, he joins to become the ultra-hero Three-Who-Are-One, with both Elric and Erekose.
