    Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain's latest hypersteam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance...with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown. The fate of England is once again in the hands of an ingenious archivist paired with a beautiful, fearless lady of adventure.

    Entertaining Insane Ride


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nine Princes in Amber?

    The moment when things turn fantastical and Corwin hurls an armchair across a room.


    Which character – as performed by Alessandro Juliani – was your favorite?

    Random. The voice, combined with the author's writings, combines to make a great character, if a little weasly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Gold may glitter, but nothing shines like Amber.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.
