Overview

One of the most revered names in sf and fantasy, the incomparable Roger Zelazny was honored with numerous prizes--including six Hugo and three Nebula Awards--over the course of his legendary career.

Carl Corey wakes up in a secluded New York hospital with amnesia. He escapes and investigates, discovering the truth, piece by piece: he is really Prince Corwin, of Amber, the one true world of which our Earth is just a shadow. He is one of nine men who might rule Amber, if he can fight his way past the armies of his older brother Eric.

One of the great achievements in sci-fi/fantasy. Still ahead of it's time 45 years down the road. His ideas on the nature of objective reality are truly thought provoking and his influence on artists like the wachowskis of "The Matrix" fame have always been readily apparent to his many fans.

I have been waiting for YEARS for this series to be published on Nook. Zelazny was a brilliant writer; if you haven't read him yet, get ready for a master class on writing. This is a truly original work of imagination. And it's the first in a series that will keep you looking for the next book. I'm also waiting for his 'Lord of Light,' 'The Doors of His Face . ..' Please, B&N, bring them out asap. Bundle the Amber books!

Oh my gosh this is one of the best fantasy series I have ever read. I reread it every year. I finally don't have to hoard my copies and hunt down new ones at bookstores.

First book of one of my absolute favorite series. PLEASE bring the entire series out as a bundle! I refuse to buy this book until I know for sure that the rest will also be available. It's just too frustrating to red a book this good without being able to read the sequels as well.

This is one of the first books I ever read as part of the Great Book of Amber. It has inspired a lifetime love of reading and inspired my own attempts at becoming an author.  Roger Zelazny has such a unique way of writing, of painting a world where the impossible seem possible and the fantastically improbable mere extensions of one's will.

In my opinion there has never been another book written that is more original, intriguing or had more colorful characters. I have read this book and the others in the series so many times and my enjoyment never wanes. I spent a great deal of my younger teen years being in love with Corwin of Amber. Excellent.
