Why this book?
This is a book about one of the nine princes of Amber. A family of trans-dimensional dynasty of immortal warriors and sorcerers that can walk through the layers of reality as easily as getting a cup of tea. But it starts with a man who lost his memory in a car accident convinced that someone is out to get him. From the first chapter it’s a wild ride through the multiverse they call shadow as the Courts of Chaos and the Lords of Order chase after one man.
This book showed me how great a story could be when an author cut loose and let you follow along on one of the best “hellrides” ever. I am sure it wasn’t the first book showing how crazy the multiverse was, but it was branded in my mind forever.
