John Gregory Betancourt Books Overview

Nine Princes of Chaos

The third book in the Roger Zelazny trilogy.

Chaos and Amber

In Roger Zelazny’s ‘Amber’ universe, there is only one true world, of which all others are but Shadows. In the ten book saga that he created, it is learned that ‘Amber’ was not the first true world; rather, it was ‘The Courts of Chaos.’ The saga chronicled the adventures of the royal family of Amber, culminating with a worlds shaking battle between champions from Amber and from Chaos. Zelazny did not have the chance to create the origin of Amber and its royal family, or reveal other key information that is only alluded to, before he died. The Dawn of Amber trilogy expands the ‘Amber’ universe and answers the important questions left open, including how Amber was created, by whom, and why. The events in the trilogy will precede those in the existing novels, but follow some of the same, immortal characters. Finally, fans of the series will discover why it was necessary to create Amber, how Chaos and Amber came to be at war, and the true nature of the universal, sentient forces that Amber and Chaos represent.

Shadows of Amber

Oberon, newly crowned King of Amber, finds himself in the middle of deadly political machinations, as his father tries to turn him into a puppet ruler. Meanwhile, rumors abound of a Shadow Amber in the sea, where a distorted version of Oberon sits on an onyx throne. To make matters worse, Oberon’s sister is trying to marry him off to a grasping would be queen, at least two siblings are out for his blood, and the entire Shadow universe is starting to unravel. What’s a new king to do? Seek help from an unlikely new ally!

The Blind Archer

In a distant time, when Earth was flat and ruled by magic, wizards knew well the perils of sorcery. It was a lesson young Ker Orrum had yet to learn, for he had just discovered the flame of power within him, and he yearned to wield it. When the Oracle spoke of a journey and of a gem, Ker Orrum’s fate was sealed: he would wrest the Great Ruby from the mighty god called The Blind Archer. Many others had tried; none had succeeded. Yet Ker Orrum was determined to fulfill his destiny, ignorant of the awesome forces he was about to unleash. Before it was over, his odyssey would sweep him into a horrifying world of vision without sight, where he would need more than magic to conquer the searing wrath of the Faceless Demons!

Cutthroat Island

Inheriting her father’s pirate ship and his map to an unfathomable treasure, the fiery Morgan Adams begins a merry hunt, with the help of con artist William Shaw, until her uncle and the British Navy get in the way. Movie tie in.

For a brilliant holographic artist, hopelessly in love with a woman who abandoned him, it is a chance to win back her affections…
