Listener Opinions

    " Everyone I met who has read this series has a favorite, and it is without fail the first one they read. I read the fifth (Being a Green Mother) first, and it is my favorite. The first five can be read in any order, with intriguing plots interwoven through the entire set, but the sixth and seventh are best left for the end. "

    " The earthly incarnations of Death, Time, Fate, War, Nature and Evil have all been explained in the Incarnations of Immortality series and finally Piers Anthony tackles probably the most challenging aspect yet, that of Good. And Eternity focuses on a God that has become ambivalent to the mortal realm and has effectively become a non-existent incarnation. The determinations of what qualifies as sin have become outdated, but with no incarnation of Good available to realign the definitions of good and evil the future of humanity is doomed.[return][return]In this setting, we follow an unlikely trio: Orlean (deceased daughter of Nature), Jolie (deceased wife of Satan) and an underage prostitute. The three are set forth on a quest by the incarnation of Night that weaves them through the lives of all the Incarnations and they have no idea that the role they play may just save the world.[return][return]The seventh, and arguably, the final book in the series closes out the series well. Piers Anthony does an admirable job of tackling the final incarnation of Good though I am sure he upset a few along the way. It is challenging to write a novel that calls out in no uncertain terms that the current God is ineffective and due for replacement, but the six preceding books in the series prepare the reader for this conclusion. In spite of a few "stinkers" (Wielding a Red Sword and Being a Green Mother) the series is worth a read. Will I read them all again? Probably not, but it was a fun ride while it lasted. "

    " The misogyny was one thing, but the pedophilia apologia? No. I reread the entire series so I would remember what was going on for the newest one Under a Velvet Cloak and reading it with adult eyes was... very disturbing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 2/1/2014

    " The seventh installment of the Incarnation of Immortality does not disappoint. 10 of 10 stars "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gwen | 1/20/2014

    " Each time I read this book I like it less and less. I loved it when I was in high school. Now I despise Piers Anthony's blatant sexism and wonder how much damage he did to my teenage psyche. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 1/17/2014

    " A creepy, misogynistic, and disappointing end to an otherwise good series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/7/2014

    " LOVED this series, but they are hard to find to re-read! :-( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jay | 1/7/2014

    " A couple plot points troubled me, not quite as good as remainder of series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dj | 12/30/2013

    " This is the worst book I've actually finished. The last 20 pages are kinda interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Qa'id | 12/24/2013

    " From my youth... it was good at the time, but not sure I'd really be feeling these stories nowadays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allysen | 12/14/2013

    " I think it was the best one in the series. I liked For Love of Evil too. But this one had all the incarnations in it, and lots of Parry. I like him. It ended just the way it was supposed to. I like it when that happens "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 12/14/2013

    " This was a great ending to the series. I waited too long to finaly read it. I WAS annoyed with the relationship between the judge and the girl. Loved getting to see more of the Satan/Gaea relationship. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 12/11/2013

    " I loved this series when I was a teen, but even then I realized it wasn't that well written. And this one I didn't even like back then. Awful juvenile theology-fantasy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/9/2013

    " The concept is so cool, and the way he writes it so painful and juvenile... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean Martin | 12/4/2013

    " Definitely the worst of the series. So many icky plot elements. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vincent Morrison | 5/23/2013

    " An incredibly atrocious end of a series that started so well. The series should have stopped at the delightful sixth book. I have never been so disappointed in reading a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Needleroozer | 4/3/2013

    " What can I say about a book I know I read but don't really remember? Not much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gian | 12/5/2012

    " This book was excellent. I was not expecting a story to be told liek this. It was very interesting and kept the pages turning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coral | 10/2/2012

    " Last book in this series and I loved it as much as the rest. All of your favorite characters come together from the rest of the books. I really was not disappointed with any part of this series and recommend it to everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vania Bushman | 8/29/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 8/9/2012

    " the pronunciations are great to actually hear the characters name, instead of trying to say them.It enhances the story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 3/19/2012

    " I read this book during my Piers Anthony period. I'm not sure that I'd read his books these days, but I did enjoy it at the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Massingale | 8/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa H | 6/28/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. I think. I may need more time to process it and draw a conclusion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 4/20/2011

    " Meh (Contains spoliers). Seven books talking about how God is too wrapped up in himself to perform his office just so the author would skip over the consequences of his impeachment. Oh, and statutory rape is not okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 3/11/2011

    " Not quite as good as the preceding books, but what're you going to do? "

    " Number 7 in a really great series about the immortal and intangible concepts of Death, Time, Fate, etc. - this one's about God, and unfortunately, is the weakest of the whole series (imho). "

    " Wonderful series, I enjoyed this a lot. "

    " made it through all seven books! (i'm not going to read the add-on 8th book about the incarnation of night). it was really cool how all the characters' story lines intersected and crisscrossed everywhere. i didn't get guess the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/29/2010
