|Plot Summary of Sign of the Unicorn|
|"This is a "bridge" story; not too much happens here, as Corwin, now King of Amber, slowly starts to unravel the mystery of who knocked off Caine.
While there isn't much of a resolution, it does have some good twists and turns."
Steve, Resident Scholar
|"Corwin has to find out what thins are threatening his city, Amber. He does this by setting a meeting with his whole famliy, or what is left of them."
Stefanie Pontolaeng, Resident Scholar
|"This is *the* book of the series of five. Much of the action is intense and characters reveal more here.
War and treachery has come to Amber. King Eric is dead, but Corwin is distrusted by his siblings and yet must protect the throne. Little is as it seems--as everyone has some reason to be less than helpful to Corwin. Corwin begins to find his obsession with the throne is a two-edged sword that may cost him his life, as it has his brother's.
And the Chaosians are pressing their invasion.
Will the royal family survive or perish? "
Arref Mak, Resident Scholar
