Across the worlds of Shadow, Corwin, Prince of blood royal, heir to the throne of Amber, gathers his forces for an assault that will yeild up to him the crown that is rightfully his.

Praise for The Chronicles of Amber
“...these fantasy adventures are [Zelazny’s] best work, they have earned him a whole new audience
by virtue of their elegance, humor, literacy, vivid action and lightly applied but complex
background of tarot, alternate worlds, Olympian gods, and magic.”

I bought the first book because it was read by Roger Zelazny and I decided to eventually get the entire set. I think it's interesting to listen to the author read his own work, seeing how he paced the story, pronounced place names and his take on his work.
