Picking up with the conclusion of the "Blood of Amber" cliffhanger, Merle Corey seeks escape from the Shadow world of Alice in Wonderland. As the son of the great Prince Corwin of Amber, Merle is a member of a huge warring royal family with the genetic ability to move through 'shadow' worlds (of which our own is one). Merle tries to find the path back to Amber, the original world, to question unknown enemies and to discover the influence of the Courts of Chaos on his predicaments.

Review: Sign of Chaos (The Chronicles of Amber #8)

User Review  - Ian Banks - Goodreads

A place-setting middle volume. Merlin is a little competent and powerful to be really cowed by anything and everything falls into place a little too easily at this point to be taken really seriously ... Read full review

Review: Sign of Chaos (The Chronicles of Amber #8)

User Review  - Scott - Goodreads

Hmm... This is just more of the same and the series seems to have lost that little "something" that made the first pentalogy so interesting to read. I was initially excited to see what became of Ghost, but maybe Zelazny is saving that as a trump for the last book! ...I'll see myself out. Read full review

About the author (1987)

Author Roger Zelazny was born in Euclid, Ohio on May 13, 1937. After receiving his B.A. from Case Western Reserve University and his M.A. from Columbia University, Zelazny began publishing science fiction stories in 1962. His reputation has gone through ups and downs, but he was given a Nebula award in 1966 for And Call Me Coward (1965), in a tie with Dune by Frank Herbert. He won a total of three Nebula awards and six Hugo awards. A prolific writer, Zelazny's works focus on the relationship between illusion and reality. He always pays close attention to his craft, and his stories are intelligent, occasionally sentimental, often romantic and, to his many fans, very satisfying. He died of kidney failure secondary to colorectal cancer on June 14, 1995.
