Second in the series, this is a challenging book to follow, however a must read for those who bite in to the "Luna" saga. Do not miss the authors note at the end! On its own this book doesn't have the punch of On a Pale Horse, but is fill so many gaps needed to truly understand the strange view of Piers' Incarnations. Don't pass this one up, in will entertain as well as educate.

OK. Just didn't hold up as well as I remembered

This is the second book in the series. It is typical Piers Anthony writing. It is light on character development and more about problem solving. I'd say this is one of those series that reads more like a transcript of a role playing game session than a novel. It isn't bad, it isn't great. It is a passable read. I loved ythis series as a child. Maybe it is more for young adults because it didn't hold up as well as I remember. If you like Piers Anthony you will like this one. If not, you won't. it isn't bad, but it isn't anything to write home about either.
