Début plus faiblard pour le second cycle, mais intéressant quand même, encore quatre volume avant de clôturer la saga, assez impatient de découvrir ça.

This has to stand for all 5 'Merlin' books. The first two I have read long ago and several times and only just discovered there were three more. I really enjoyed two of the three but the last one was lacking in plot so a bit disappointing. It's a seductive world and attractive characters. The best p...

The Cycle of Corwin has ended. Now come the adventures of his son, Merlin, born of Dara, holy terror of the Courts of Chaos. You might remember her as the demon that disguised herself as Corwin's grand-niece, in order to learn how to walk the Pattern and gain enough power to destroy Amber. Yeah, her...

It's been awhile since I've read the first Chronicles Of Amber, but I remember enjoying them more than I did this one. Not to say it was bad, it's just that Merlin son of Corwin is a much less compelling and more bumbling character in this book than his father Corwin was at even the lowest point of ...

Rereading this for the first time in decades, and in sequence right after rereading the original Corwin series, it feels like Zelazny just phoned this in. Quite disappointing. It rambles, it seems inconsistent, and Merlin doesn't even seem to question any of the insane things that keep happening to ...

Merle Corey's got several problems. He's secretly Merlin, a Prince of Amber. His father Corwin has been missing for years. Oh, and someone tries to kill him every April 30th for reasons unknown. The story starts with Merle getting ready to leave Shadow Earth behind and devote himself to working ...

Zelazny's continuation of the Amber series started out very strong but trailed off rather badly. Like Nine Princes, this book starts off in the real world with an action/adventure opening. Then we get the prospect of stories set as much in Chaos as in Amber, along with some magical SF concepts lik...

The adventures of Merlin, son of Corwin and Dara. Half Amberite, Half Lord of Chaos. More machinations. Someone is trying to kill him and other Amber royalty. The whole fragmented sentence thing used for shadow traveling is visually effective, but I simply skip it. Nothing happens in it.

For some reason the person who wrote the GR blurb for this made it sound like an entry in the "ordinary guy/gal discovers they are special" genre -- this is not the case. Merlin, the main character, knows perfectly well who his parents are and what powers his family has. He is just hanging out being...
