The Courts of Chaos by Roger Zelazny

First sentence:

"Amber: high and bright atop Kolvir in the middle of the day."


"A universe of many universes united by magical threads, Amber faces final destruction from the world beyond the Shadow world.

The cosmic Pattern that sustains the world of Amber lies in shreds' reality itself is on the verge of disintegration; and Corwin, heroic madman, uncrowned prince of the perfect realm, must face shapeshifting assassins, an alluring woman, and the multi-dimensional terrors of Shadow in his pulse-racing quest to save the kingdom.

Here at last is the crowning finale to the incredible Amber saga, an action-charged adventure that plunges from realm to realm to unlock the mysteries of a breathtakingly imagined world."

My thoughts:

Although it's been a while since I read the Chronicles of Amber, I enjoyed Corwin's adventure as he discovered courage within himself to create a new pattern and to help his family fend off the forces of Chaos.
