I liked this one even more than the first. The ending was certainly a cliffhanger!! As the family ties become more convoluted, I am even more fascinated. The magic of Amber is clearer now, but still absolutely unique. I am quite intrigued as this one did not end at all as I had predicted.
Awesome series-- a true classic. They aren't written this well any more. Really original ideas, great characters, a story line that really needs five volumes to develop. An added bonus: the audiobook is read by the author himself, zelazny. How cool is that?!
