Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. HTML:Here in a fourth complete-in-itself novel of the Incarnations of Immortality, Piers Anthony again combines fascinating magic with a gripping, complex struggle between good and evil.
Mym was a dutiful son, but his father the Rajah interfered in his love life once too often. Rather than wed without love, he took up the Red Sword, symbol of office of the Incarnation of War.
At first he thought his efforts could ameliorate some of the suffering caused by Earth's constant petty wars. But he found that behind all his involvement were the clever traps of Satan.
When seeming mischance placed him in Hell, Mym organized a great rebellion among the Damned. And Satan seemed to capitulate. But free again, Mym learned that Satan had been busy stirring up riots and war. Now it seemed things had gone too far and Satan must surely win. There was only one desperate chance. . . .

This one just didn't work for me. Having Mars work in a somewhat modern society, with the limitations of the other Incarnations, just felt forced. It is also starting to be clear in this book where the series is going and I just wasn't that interested. All of these Incarnations, in their own way, are equally powerful, which presents a problem that Anthony does not solve. I loved this series when I read book 1 and book 2, but it really started to go downhill with this one. ( )

The review by Kate: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/276144296#comment_list
captures my feelings perfectly -- loved this series as a youth, am appalled by the sexist stereotyping as an adult, prefer to remember it fondly and not re-experience it. Alas. ( )

I have always enjoyed Piers Anthony's books but I had never read this series. As a whole I quite enjoyed this series of books. I found the characters and story to be clever and interesting. It sort of reminded me of a more adult version of a Rick Riordan series of books. ( )

Read and loved many times. Time to reread so I can comment.

Reread 2018 - I should never read reviews..they taint things. So much negative reaction, all of it seemingly due to the inner mindset of the person reading rather than what was written. Okay, that is the way reading works...your own preconceived notions colour every story and sometimes blind you to what the writer himself intended. I hesitated about reading but I am a completist so I started and enjoyed it and the things that bothered other readers did not bother me. Again, I am not fond of the Satan interactions and all the women chopping and changing was confusing but the book was not bad and I am looking forward to the next. Oooh and a mystery to solve...a baby to find. ( )

It was a travelling show, the kind that drifted from village to village, performing for thrown rupees.
