Sign of the Unicorn
Sign of the Unicorn is the third book in Roger Zelazny’s incomparable Chronicles of Amber series.
Amber is safe, for now, from the invaders of the black road. But someone has killed Cain and has framed Corwin for the murder. Believing that the murder of Cain is related to the mysterious disappearance of his brother Brand, Corwin calls the family together to try to combine all of their powers to reach Brand. Betrayal and suspicion follow; Amber is once again threatened with destruction by internal strife. Epic in scope and beautifully written by a master stylist.
