In the final novels of his ten-book Amber series, Roger Zelazny rewarded readers with several startling revelations about his fantasy universe. But with Zelazny's passing, many important questions about Amber and the Courts are left unanswered. Who created Amber? Why was its creation necessary? Who created the Pattern? How did Oberon become ruler of Amber? Why are the Courts of Chaos and Amber at war? How did this conflict begin, and whom does it serve? The Dawn of Amber is a prequel trilogy, exploring events that precede the first novel in the series, that answers these intriguing questions. Here, in Book One, you'll meet the young soldier known as Obere as he's whisked away from the kingdom and world he has known and defended his entire life, and placed on a knife's edge of turmoil, intrigue, domination and death. He must learn what he can on the fly, unwilling to let friend and foe alike know how little he understands of this strange universe and the dangerous creatures that rule it. His life is in jeopardy, as is the entire House of Dworkin -- the result of an ages-old blood feud that threatens to destroy Obere's new-found family and any hope for a universe of light to balance and oppose the forces of Chaos and darkness. To achieve his legacy of power and become a player in this deadly game whose rules he is yet to discover, Obere must journey into the serpent's lair, the home of his enemies...the Courts of Chaos.
