Elric

I started rereading the first of this series because I first read it when I was ~12 years old and don't remember much of it except the torture doctor and the evil swords and that he's an albino. You get the idea.

I'm only like a chapter into it and it's pretty cool how it mirrors real-world beliefs about magic (like how the Songhay, etc. have): for example ignoring the tradition of sacrificing the bridesmaids and groomsmen to ensure a good marriage makes the court anxious of Elric's probable marriage. But you can figure out that it's actually going to be bad news because Elric and his girlfriend are cousins. (I think I got that right: she's Yrkoon's sister, and Yrkoon is Elric's cousin.)
