Knight of Shadows, Roger Zelazny

Title: Knight of Shadows
Author: Roger Zelazny
Rating: Great!

And still the story rolls on.

Merlin continues to grapple with the hugely complicated plots going on around him, and we try to understand them as well. Is Corwin - his father - still out there somewhere? We even meet him a few times, but it isn't clear. Just exactly what are his friends (and his enemies) doing in response to all the political machinations?

There is one patch in the middle of this book that runs a tad slower than the rest, but even that is fun. Perhaps that slight slowdown from the breakneck pace of these books is a good thing.

Only one book left to go, and if it continues like these last three, it will be a real roller coaster.
