Ninth in the Amber fantasy series (most recently Sign of Chaos, not seen), a mega-yarn so hypercomplicated that Zelazny spends the first 50 pages here explaining - not always convincingly - who's been doing what to whom, and why. The preliminaries over, a straightforward story emerges. Merle, whose heritage includes both Amber and Chaos, becomes unwillingly involved in a strange magical tussle: seems that the Logrus, source of magic at the Courts of Chaos, is sentient, as is the Pattern that supplies Amber with its magic; and, for unknown reasons, the two magical abstracts have engaged in one-upmanship and are determined to force Merle to participate - indeed, to choose sides - which he steadfastly refuses to do. All this is packed with incident and handsomely embroidered, though the scenery owes more to computer graphics than genuine imagination. For the rest - well, by now Amber fans know what to expect. Others will view the whole overextended Amber series - once so fresh, magnetic, and enjoyable - as increasingly detached and irrelevant. (Kirkus Reviews)
The latest in the series of Amber novels, in which Merlin, the son of Prince Corwin, continues to claim his birthright, despite the various people who wish to kill him.
