Publisher's Summary

Knight of Shadows is the ninth 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.
Melvin Corey must choose between an alliance with the Pattern of Amber or the Pattern of Chaos, in a tale of a sometimes murderous family of wizards and their alternate worlds.

just as good as any of the others in this series

only one more to go, soooooo sad to leave these characters behind. really hoping book 10 ends well. all fantasy lovers should give these books a go, would be surprised if some didn't enjoy them. I am so in awe of Roger Zelazny's imagination and He could not have chosen two better narrators

A Pawn in a Battle of Superpowers

The Unicorn and the One-eyed Snake of Chaos duel, using Merlin as pawn!

This series takes a while to get going, but this book is solid. In this installment we finally get a bit more of the history of the war between Chaos and Amber/Order. Dorwin comes back for real. Corwin kinda-sorta-maybe comes back. Also, we get more of Mandor, who is one of my favorite characters in this series.

BTW, don't start reading with this book! Go back and start with the Trumps of Doom (the first in this second series) or ALL THE WAY back to the beginning of the first Chronicles of Amber, Nine Princes in Amber. (Though if you do the latter, I'll have to recommend reading it in print. The audiobook narrator is ... in a word ... awful!)
