Deathbringer : The Tale of Elric the Deathbringer
"Despite what you have heard, history is not always writ by the winner, it's writ by whomever gets to the writing first and writes the strongest." Elric the Deathbringer was once a boy and, like many boys growing up in the town of Darim, it was not a pleasant experience. Born of the union of his father and a whore nine years earlier, the only life Elric had ever known was at the hands of his abusive father who made sure that Elric knew he was an unpleasant reminder of that night's grave mistake. All was not broken bones and blood however, for one day Elric chanced across a small relic hidden away in the thick cover of a book. With this relic, Elric managed to resurrect an ancient figure named Haresh whose power was both grueling and limitless. Under the tutelage of Haresh, Elric trained on man and beast alike. As the corpses piled up, whispers began to spread of a powerful sorcerer hiding out in Darim. Elric, too dangerous to have around and too dangerous to kill, was ostracized from Darim and assaulted by religious zealots on a near daily basis at his new base of operations in the Bloody Needle. It seemed as though things couldn't get worse. They did... Deathbringer is an intelligently crafted dark fantasy novel of dangerous power, ancient philosophies, and unending betrayal taking place within the larger series dubbed The Alderian Chronicles.
