Rating: Weighted - 6.79 / Average - 6.5 of 10 (21 votes)
A bold fantasy in the tradition of Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber. The world of Merchant Princes is a parallel Earth, a world where knights on horseback chase their prey with automatic weapons, and where world-skipping assassins lurk just on the other side of reality The six families of the Clan rule the kingdom from behind the scenes, a mixture of nobility and criminal conspirators whose power to walk between the worlds makes them rich in both. Braids of family loyalty and intermarriage provide a fragile guarantee of peace, but a recently-ended civil war has left the families shaken and suspicious.
