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.

Blood of Amber
The second book of the second cycle of the Amber series. Plenty of action here with many twists and turns.
Great book, poor incarnation
The books are amazing, zelazny's attention to enough detail but not too much, and his ability to define thought processes is incredible. The original audiobooks were read by Zelazny himself and were much better than this.
I've listened to zelazny's readings of the while series over 10 times (unabridged) and these abridged versions just don't come close to the gruff tones that Zelazny embodies from his own writings. If you've never read these books, then do - that is, listen/read whatever you can get your hands on. The first 5 books are the best of the series, but my personal suggestion is that you find a copy of Sunset Prosuctions original recordings of Zelazny reading his own works.
