Stormbringer by Michael Moorcock

In this dark fantasy novel, the protagonist, a brooding and complex anti-hero, is bound to a sentient and malevolent black sword that grants him power and a cursed fate. As he navigates a world filled with gods, magic, and warfare, he is driven by a personal quest that pits him against supernatural forces and the doom that the sword brings. The narrative is rich with existential themes, exploring the nature of good and evil, destiny, and the struggle for personal agency within a universe that is indifferent or even hostile to the individual's desires. The book culminates in epic battles and tragic choices, leaving a lasting impact on the world the protagonist inhabits and on the readers who journey with him.
