Youth, love, beauty-I knew them in Avalon. Who stabbed Corwin in the dark? Oh no, knights in armor, fire fire fire! Part 2 went back to slow again and dragged most of the way through. My second year was pretty much like my first, with the same finale. They killed everyone but me.
Publication: Kroniki Amberu: Tom 1
The original series spanned five books. Corwin isn’t a bad protagonist, but the problem is that his initial amnesia not a big spoiler, so keep those pitchforks away forces at least a third of the entire span of these books to be exposition.
In the center of all these alternate worlds is Amber, sort of like the pillar holding everything together. Why couldn’t there have been more of that?
See more reviews at The BiblioSanctum I have heard that the second half is not quite as good as the first. The dzuewieciu book of the series, Nine Princes in Amber, was brilliantly done.

At first Corwin is someone who is willing to kill his own sibling and send thousands of men he has duped to their deaths in order to get the Excellent series with infinite universes, quarreling Gods, ambedu crazy plot twists.
It got really distracting. I would much rather have had the family be half the size but more developed, but instead we’re left with various names that it’s hard to care about. The Courts of Chaos: All of these questions and more are answered in this, the final book of The First Chronicles of Amber.
Corwin and the other characters were believable in personality but I cared about none dziewiecku them.
For reference, I stopped at page after reading the first book. Jan 17, Cassandra rated it really liked it Shelves: As the series have been publ Let me just start by saying that I cannot remember how many times I have re-read these books. Log in with Facebook.
Eric couldn’t even hear me if I cried out. Thirdly, the books go straight to the point. Four stars for the dizewieciu of the prose, the spectacular banter, the hysterical literary references, and sheer cussed inventiveness. Zelazny wants to show a war to save billions. But while that might seem promising, he also quickly finds himself re-embroiled in a deadly, centuries-long battle among his siblings, who have split into factions pursuing the throne in Amber, vacant since their father disappeared.
This series bogs down in places with painstaking detail, then hurtles ahead in spurts and bounds, hopping over entire months in a brief paragraph or two. I have also noticed that many reviewers have included details of the actual story which I try to avoid at the best of times ddziewieciu this is one instance in which it is really much better if you know nothing about what it is about or going to happen.
I’m terribly sorry but I’m very dissapointed. The author seems to have a childish conception of what royalty means.
I can see that this will be a series that I will need to read again someday, as its multiple layers will show things through a re-read that might have been overlooked the first time through. And so it goes. The main narrator is Corwin yes, it is first person, but don’t worry, the writing is a masterful combination of beauty and down-to-earth jokes and grumblings.
In one line the protagonist sounds like your average American, then two lines later you get “How fare you, brother? All roads lead to Amber A boring soap opera set in a fantasy universe. If you want to read fantasy about “multiversums” stick to Moorcock’s Corum and forget about Zelazny’s Corwin. Tolkien wanted to show the battle for one single Middle Earth. The characters in this series are complete, true to themselves, and detailed without a lot of wordy description getting in the way of the story.
There is no period of scene setting in which the characters are established. It is one continuous story arc.

Nov 30, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: How many miles to Avalon? Corwin is determined to usurp his brother’s rule and sets about building an army.
Pure, undiluted brilliant fantasy. I highly recommend this series. And, of course, all of that happens in the alternative fantasy universe. It can be fatal to trust the wrong person – but who can you trust when your entire family is locked in a battle for the throne?
