    Would you consider the audio edition of Trumps of Doom to be better than the print version?

    I cannot consider any audio version of a book that I've read multiple times as better... a new way of hearing it in my head, yes, Better?


    What other book might you compare Trumps of Doom to and why?

    Anything in the Amber Chronicles stands out as a thing on it's own. A unique and above all CONSISTANT system of magics, answers that get more questions brought up... It's addicting.


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    Wil Wheaton brings to life Merlin, the son of Corwin of Amber. He brings the wry humor of the character in subtle ways. I manage to loose Wil and find Merlin within the performance.


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

    I'd have two separate choices.

    1) "April Thirtieth will never be the same."

    or

    2) "Pick a card, any card."


    Any additional comments?

    The Amber Chronicles have been one of my favorite series for a LONG time. In the beginning we know just as much as the main character. By book five we have followed Cowrin through a long journey of change and discovery. Questions are raised, answered....and more questions come from the answers.
    In this, the sixth book of the series we meet Merlin the son of Corwin of Amber, and Dara of Chaos. Merlin, it turns out, seems to have inherited his father's knack for troubles.
    Who is behind the yearly attempts on his life? What is going on with his Ghost Wheel project? As he solves one problem another rises to take it's place... The Courts of Chaos, the Palace of Amber... Poles of reality of which everything else is but a reflection and shadow..between them lies the life of Merlin.
