My Review Of Sign of the Unicorn

Sign of the Unicorn by Roger Zelazny

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So the story continues, but oddly. The previous book left off on a real cliff-hanger, and this one picks up in the future with no real explanation of how the cliff-hanger was resolved. Seriously, the antagonists were facing each other with swords drawn, and now nothing? Corwin is now the King in Amber, and Eric is dead, but it happened when they were allied against the dark powers threatening Amber, and Eric gives Corwin key information to help him. Then this story takes us into what I can only analogize as Game of Thrones territory, where every member of the family seems to be making shifting alliances and opposition. One member has been held captive, but they manage to bring him back, only to have him be attacked as the rescue is accomplished. At the end, the nature of Amber is called into question. This makes abundantly clear that this series needs to be read as a whole, and not as individual novels for it to make any sense.
