The Chronicles of Corum

The Chronicles of Corum, the 1970's epic fantasy by Michael Moorcock, is the trilogy sequel to the original (book 1, book 2, book 3). This trilogy continues the story of Corum along the same lines as the first. This isn't the kind of book that I favor, but it was a fun enough read. I picked it up because The Younger Son was reading Moorcock's Elric books.

from the back of the book:
A great winter fell across the Earth. Corum of the Silver Hand had slain the gods so that Man might rule: the last of the Vadhagh, he had saved the race that had betrayed his own, and he had earned his rest. But it was not to be ... for new gods, and fiercer ones, strode the land. Corum took up the moon-coloured sword with sorrow. For to him fell the task of defeating the Fhoi Myore, the Cold Gods - who yearned for death but could not be slain!

A tale of exceptional and mythic power, The Chronicles of Corum follows The Swords Trilogy and completes the saga of Corum Jhaelen Irsei, who was not a god and yet was not a man.
