If Nine Princes in Amber is a “Who Am I?” story, The Guns of Avalon is more of a straight adventure piece. Having escaped from his imprisonment in Amber, Corwin sets out to claim the throne he believes should be his. So he journeys into shadow to raise his new army, but along the way he discovers the consequences of his curse and comes to regret the rashness which led him to inflict it on that which he loves. In other words, Corwin begins to grow up a little. The novel also introduces Benedict, the most fearsome and possibly the most intriguing of the princes and princesses of Amber and sets the stage for the exploration of familial dysfunctionality that is the next book. The only problem you’ll have with this novel (even after multiple readings) is that you won’t want to put it down.
