Roger Zelazny has always had a gift for poetic imagery and his extraordinary talents are on full display in The Courts of Chaos as Corwin hell-rides from one end of the sprawling multiverse of shadows to the other. It’s beautiful to read and he adeptly uses the journey to build tension and foreshadow the key elements of the conclusion of the series. When it finally becomes impossible for our hero to stay ahead of the wave of chaos coming out of Oberon’s possibly failed attempt to fix the Pattern, Zelazny gives us a glimpse of what it must have been like when Dworkin first inscribed the source of all order. From there, the pace of the story springs forward at lightning speed to the conclusion of the struggle among the princes and princesses of Amber. It would have been very easy for these final scenes to disappoint the reader. Anticipation for them had been building over five books and expectations were high. But Zelazny outdid himself and provides a totally satisfying conclusion as the children of Oberon finally mature enough to put their squabbles behind them and place their lives on the line for all of shadow. The final ending, on the horn of the unicorn, was the perfect outcome to a superior tale.
