The further I get into this series the better it gets. At this point it's clear to me that the five books trace a single story arc, rather than each book having its own. If these were published now they'd be a single volume with the heft of a Robert Jordan epic.
The action is picking up, the intrigue is great, and all the complexity that Zelazny has put in place over four novels now comes to a head--just like you'd expect at the climax of a single novel. I really like the story, but now I'm met with a roadblock. I don't have the fifth installment--I have the sixth.
Oh, and I saw the Ganelon thing coming on two hundred pages ago.
