Overview

Merlin pursues the mysterious disappearances of the two people dearest to him: Julia, once murdered and now reincarnated as his enemy; and his father, Corwin, who, never visible, leaves behind tantalizing signs of life. But, the powers of Order and Chaos intervene, attempting to force Merlin to choose once and for all where his allegiance lies: the Courts of Chaos, Amber, the Lorgus, or the Unicorn. Deftly woven of suspense, intrigue, and imagery, Knight of Shadows is another colorful piece of the Amber puzzle, as well as a work of sophisticated fantasy by one of our leading word magicians.

Better in many ways - more progress and an interesting story. But still an awful lot of loose ends and distractions, and a semi-cliffhanger ending. What the heck is that ring? And all the rest - the black-and-white world, a lot of surrealism... Bah - read the next one when I can. I'm glad I didn't bother to get the whole set - I'll be getting rid of the ones I have now.
