Elric is the unlikely emperor of this isolated kingdom, a symbol of commerce and a target for the many who lust after its success. The author sets the scene and frames the conflict of the main characters in a brief introduction. The full soundtrack that accompanies Jeffrey West's narration is far from subtle. Rather than heightening the drama, it is simply overdone. Nonetheless, West gives a strong and nuanced narration. He brings to life a varied cast of characters, making his well-paced performance worth the listen. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
