Publisher's Summary

Prince of Chaos is the tenth and final installment 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.
Treacheries, trickeries, assassination attempts and bloody family intrigues have finally maneuvered Merlin, aka Merle Corey, into the Courts of Chaos. Thanks to a series of conventionally fatal "accidents" engineered by his mother Dara and uncle Mandor, Merlin third in line to occupy the throne.
Merlin's journey to the ultimate rule will not be easy, for dark enchantments still await him. There is murderous discord between Amber and Chaos to be silenced. And a captive royal father, long believed dead, must first be freed from a villain's magic before a beleaguered Prince can deem his triumph complete.

The ends of the tangled threads

This book has always felt a little rushed to me, since there was a lot of work to do answering the questions and resolving the story lines. I suspect Zelazny had a lot more that he wanted to say but was constrained by the length of the books. There are four or five fragments, written for fanzines (back before the Internet, remember? Actual paper?) by Zelazny that add fascinating details to the story beyond what is resolved here. Whatever, it is Zelazny, and therefore it is masterfully done. Wheaton gives a performance to be proud of in a very busy and complicated narrative.

Zelazny - A favorite author

Would you listen to Prince of Chaos again? Why?

I would listen to this again. Since the Amber series was originally written, I've probably read all the books every couple of years. I like the voices of Corwin and his son, Merlin -- just the right amount of anti-authority and wiseass. Zelazny constructed a world that was fun to explore as a reader. I've been a fan since the '70's. I wish I could have met him before he died.

Have you listened to any of Wil Wheaton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Wil Wheaton did a good job with Merlin and the other characters in the book. If I had been his director, I would have had him read some of the passages differently. But that's because their voices are so deeply embedded after reading the series so many times.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was merely gratified to find Zelazny's Amber series selected as audiobooks.

Good, yet annoyingly unfinished.

Roger Zelazny never got to finish the chronicles of Amber. There are so many loose ends in this books and characters not used to their full potential because he was holding out for the next series that you'll be disappointed after finishing this book in a way you weren't with "the courts of chaos". Not the best in the merl in cycle either, but still just as gripping as you would want it to be. If only it were finished...
