Welcome back to Amber, the one true world of which all others are but shadows and reflections. The Chronicles of Amber is an deeply influential fantasy series beloved by millions of readers.
Trumps of Doom, book 6 of the series and first narrated by Merlin, son of Corwin, opens with Merlin waiting for someone to try and kill him. He knows that an attempt will be made on his life because it’s April 30th and someone tries to kill him every April 30th. Merlin has no idea who wants to kill him, why they want to kill him, or why they only try to kill him once a year. But this year he intends to find out and put a stop to it. Little does he know that he is about to launch himself into an adventure full of danger, intrigue, royal politics, magic, and deceit that will take him across the multiverse and back. There is far more afoot that merlin can imagine . . . and thus continues one of the greatest series ever written.
