This Audie-Award-winning first episode of the Amber Series guides us seductively from our world to the one "real world" of Amber through the eyes of Corwin, one of the nine princes mentioned in the title. Roger Zelazny plays Corwin like Bogart's Thin Man in a Mervyn Peake fantasy. The details of our memory-challenged narrator's life sprinkle slowly into view as Corwin bluffs his way back into his embattled, fiercely competitive family and Amber. Raging battles and a chess game of deceit and conquest within the clan, all accompanied by paranormal powers and fierce pride, flesh out the story. Fine use of music and sound effects, and Zelazny comports himself well.
