Blood of Amber is the seventh book of The Chronicles of Amber; an epic fantasy series written by six-time Hugo Award winning and three-time Nebula Award winning author, Roger Zelazny.
The ten books that make up the series are told in two story arcs: The Corwin Cycle and the Merlin Cycle.
Narrator Wil Wheaton, who won the 2012 Audie Award for his engaging performance of Fuzzy Nation, brings this classic series to a stunning close by giving voice to Merlin, Corwin's son, in the final five books of the series.
Pursued by a fiendish enemy, Merle must battle through an intricate web of vengeance and murder that threatens more than the San Francisco Bay area. For Merle Corey of California is also Merlin, son of Corwin, vanished Prince of Amber; and the forces, seeking to destroy the royal house, have unleashed sorceries that can strike anywhere, especially at the very heart of Amber.

Well - still definitely a piece of a series. The infodump at the beginning was rather annoying - too much info if you just read the previous book, and I suspect not enough if you hadn't. And at the end...whoopee, Merle's imprisoned again. Too similar to Trumps of Doom's ending for me. There's a lot of info added in the middle of the book, and quite a lot of action at various points. But overall, it feels a bit like a treadmill - or a Red Queen's Race; all that to end up in pretty much the same place he began.
