With her red hair flowing, her yellow eyes glinting like embers, and her face streaked with blood, Jirel is strong, fearless, and driven by honor. The fierce, proud, and relentless commander of warriors, standing tall above her enemies and simmering with rage, Jirel bids farewell to the world of treacherous men and walks through a forbidden door into Hell itself in pursuit of freedom, justice, and revenge.

These are the classic tales of blood and honor that catapulted C.L. Moore into the legendary ranks of such acclaimed writers as Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs in the golden age of sword and sorcery. First published in the magazine Weird Tales in the 1930s, Moore's fantastic medieval adventures are heightened by a savage, romantic vision that helped define the genre, earning her recognition as a Grand Master for lifetime achievement by the World Fantasy Convention.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A pure romantic whose fantasies remain some of the most vivid and engaging of their kind[Jirel is] a woman equal in battle to any swashbuckling male hero who ever ruled over the knights of ancient valorThere are strains of A. Merritt, Robert E. Howard and even H.P Lovecraft . . . ExcellentJirel . . . was the first female Sword-and-Sorcery hero. And, considering how much competition she faces today from the warrior women who have followed the path she blazed, she remains one of the best. - Black Gate

Circumstances around the reading of this book have affected my opinion slightly. It's a short book of 200 pages and consists of the six jirel stories written in the 1930's. I started reading this book 9 day... More
