Publisher's Summary

Blood of Amber is the seventh book of The Chronicles of Amber; an epic fantasy series written by six-time Hugo Award winning and three-time Nebula Award winning author, Roger Zelazny.
The ten books that make up the series are told in two story arcs: The Corwin Cycle and the Merlin Cycle.
Narrator Wil Wheaton, who won the 2012 Audie Award for his engaging performance of Fuzzy Nation, brings this classic series to a stunning close by giving voice to Merlin, Corwin’s son, in the final five books of the series.
Pursued by a fiendish enemy, Merle must battle through an intricate web of vengeance and murder that threatens more than the San Francisco Bay area. For Merle Corey of California is also Merlin, son of Corwin, vanished Prince of Amber; and the forces, seeking to destroy the royal house, have unleashed sorceries that can strike anywhere, especially at the very heart of Amber.

Love Zelazny as writer, but Wheaton FTW

What made the experience of listening to Blood of Amber the most enjoyable?

I have both the random house Mr. Zelazny narrated version AND the audible frontiers one with Mr. Wil Wheaton. The SFX that random house put in the background are extremely distracting and at points I had to turn it off. Seriously a high pitch screech for a LARGE portion of a book drove me to buy a 'different version' (this one) and it is far far superior. I don't blame Mr Zelazny for this but Random Houses Audio wing.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Merle Corey - main protaganist is a deeper character than his father Corwin was in the novels.


Which character – as performed by Wil Wheaton – was your favorite?

Merle - really I need 15 words to give a one word answer? Kind of silly if you ask me.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I've read and reread the series and have listened multiple times to the RH version, I use these for a long (28 mile one way) commute in Silicon Valley.
