Plot summary

Merlin escapes from the crystal cave, and decides to gain leverage over Luke by rescuing his mother from the Keep of the Four Worlds. He spars with the sorcerer who now controls the keep, and who seems to know him. He escapes with the petrified Jasra, and returns to Amber where an unusual Trump summoning imprisons him in the Mad Hatter's tea party.

Release details

The book was published simultaneously in a limited edition of 400 signed and numbered copies, by Underwood/Miller and also a trade edition, by Arbor House.

Trivia

  • When Merlin first spies the Keep of the Four Worlds, he describes it as "an amazingly huge and complex structure, which I immediately christened Gormenghast." "Gormenghast" is the name of the sprawling, crumbling fortress from Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy.
