Not quite up to the level of the superb original Amber series, but still and all-time favorite of mine.

Interesting. Somewhat confusing at the start, though I kept waiting for him to explicitly mention Amber - it doesn't come out until a good halfway through the book, I think. I like Luke, but I agree with Bill that Merle is way too casual about him. And the late revelations are...very interesting! It's most definitely part of a series - you'd be seriously confused if this were your first encounter with Amber, and nothing gets resolved at all. But as part of a series, it's good. And I like Merle a lot better than Corwin - his actions and motives are a lot more comprehensible.

This was the first Zelazny I ever read and I had to read it over and over again. Everytime I do, I find something I missed before or had forgotten. Most of his other books have behaved in the same way for me.

While it would have been difficult to top the original Amber series, in the sequel series that starts with Trumps of Doom Zelazny does more than repeat himself: he extends his world in new directions.
