Publisher Description

Like On a Pale Horse, this second, complete-in-itself novel of the Incarnations of Immortality is a richly imagined and always fascinating story. And again, Piers Anthony adds to his gripping plot a serious, though-provoking study of good and evil. 

When life seemed pointless to Norton, he accepted the position as the Incarnation of Time, even though it meant living backward from present to past. 

The other seemily all-powerful Incarnates of Immortality—Death, Fate, War, and Nature—made him welcome. Even Satan greeted him with gifts. But he soon discovered that the gifts were cunning traps. While he had been distracted, he had become enmeshed in a complex scheme of the Evil One to destroy all that was good. 

In the end, armed with only the Hourglass, Norton was forced to confront the immense power of Satan directly. And though Satan banished him to Hell, he was resolved to fight on.

Fantastic story! Five stars! So many typos...

Great story. Quality control for typographical errors is horrendous, especially in key passages. There is a fortune teller speaking a prophecy and the text says "many" instead of "marry"! Whew!

This is just one of MANY errors, not by the author, but by the publisher of the ebook. Perhaps they are using a text recognition software. For example, "I'm" was printed "Pm". When paying $7.99, I expect a professional reproduction.
