Pure fantasy

Nine Princes in Amber - Roger Zelazny

Pure, undiluted brilliant fantasy. This novel is truly fantasy at its best, from a deservedly renowned science fiction and fantasy writer. The pace is fantastic, and the writing gripping. Pretty sure I missed my stop on the tube due to reading. Corwin’s amnesia is written well, and his slow awakening is enough to make you interested in the unfolding plot without being bored. It’s brutal yet beautiful, and the magic system of the world is well done.


The book is out of print, which is a shame when it’s so wonderfully written. The series is available second hand though, and I shall be getting the next one.
