it was amazing

This is the first in the Incarnations of Immortality series, and probably the best of the batch. I believe I read somewhere that Anthony originally intended only to write the five (Death, Time, Fate, War, and Earth), and I think he probably should have stopped there, because while With a Tangled Skein is probably the best book of the series in terms of pulling the other books together, they did (as Sci-Fi series so often do) start to drag quite a bit towards the later books, and ended up just plain silly by the end of the seventh book in the series, And Eternity.

All that said, On a Pale Horse being the reader's first look at this world, it is an original concept for a novel. As a 16 year old, at least, it was a very engrossing read, as was the rest of the series as a whole.

Jon I forgot how much I loved this book as a child. Although I did skip a couple of pages because it did actually yes it did drag out. I was so excited about this book and rereading. it I don't think I read the other books actually and this is a great opportunity again to revisit Peirs Anthony.
