In [b:Nine Princes in Amber|92121|Nine Princes in Amber (The Chronicles of Amber #1)|Roger Zelazny|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1416090973s/92121.jpg|1383240], Corwin went from having no memories to learning he was a Prince of Amber, to trying to wrest the throne from his brother Eric--only to be blinded and thrown into prison.

In [b:The Guns of Avalon|62012|The Guns of Avalon (The Chronicles of Amber #2)|Roger Zelazny|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1368213721s/62012.jpg|1105543], Corwin escapes off the Avalon in order to use jewelers' supplies to make guns to take back the throne from Eric--only to end up having to save Amber rather than attack it.

In [b:Sign of the Unicorn|239917|Sign of the Unicorn (The Chronicles of Amber #3)|Roger Zelazny|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1368213756s/239917.jpg|2425692], things really start getting weird...

On one hand, we end up getting a much stronger sense for exactly who in Amber's ruling family is working with whom and what all they've done thus far. It turns out that Corwin and his brothers and sisters really are a bunch of conniving bastards (in some cases literally). It's the first time we've really seen all (or at least most) of them all in one place at the same time, which leads to a much different sort of book. It's interesting.

On the other hand, not that much actually happens. We're learning a lot more about the world(s), but mostly only answering questions from the previous two books. I want to know more about what's going on with that Black Road. Perhaps in [b:The Hand of Oberon|116982|The Hand of Oberon (The Chronicles of Amber #4)|Roger Zelazny|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1417644788s/116982.jpg|1837346]?

Still worth finishing, but I'm starting to long for more.

Random aside, the book went rather amusingly meta at one point:


“Yes,” he said. “But I wonder . . . I’ve a peculiar feeling that I may never see you again. It is as if I were one of those minor characters in a melodrama who gets shuffled offstage without ever learning how things turn out.”

“I can appreciate the feeling,” I said. “My own role sometimes makes me want to strangle the author. But look at it this way: inside stories seldom live up to one’s expectations. Usually they are grubby little things, reducing down to the basest of motives when all is known. Conjectures and illusions are often the better possessions.”

This one begins slow, with a recollection narrated by Random to Corwin. The mystery of Amber begins to unravel as Corwin investigates the murder of his brother and the long disappearance of another. Amber is quickly becoming one of my favorite fantasy series. ( )

Another very good novel. I love the whole Amber setup with it's idea of changing the world around you and living in shadow worlds and so forth. All the talk of family politics and infighting over who is going to get the throne is all a little much for me. To be quite honest I'm one of those people who couldn't give a monkey's who attains the throne. I'm far more interested in shadow and chaos and so forth than pretty infighting amongst the family. I was also expecting a little more in the way of direct confrontation with the darker, more chaotic forces than I actually got though, so a little disappointed there.

Very good. ( )

Sam Sykes, on his magnanimous twitter, introduced me to the idea of a 'treading water' book. An installment of a series where no actual new plot developments happen, but just continuation and fulfillment of old ones. He said that while he can appreciate it, more than one in a row can get a little boring.


That's my opinion on this book. ( )
