Book Description

Feb. 1 1991 Incarnations of Immortality (Book 7)

In Pursuit of the Ultimate Good

After an overwhelming succession of tragedies, life has finally, mercifully ended for Orlene, once-mortal daughter of Gaea.

Joined in Afterlife by Jolie -- her protector and the sometime consort of Satan himself -- together they seek out a third: Vita, a very contemporary mortal with troubles, attractions, and an unsettling moral code uniquely her own.

An extraordinary triumvirate, they embark on a great quest to reawaken the Incarnation of Good in a world where evil reigns -- facing challenges that will test the very fiber of their beings with trials as numerous, as mysterious, and as devastating as the Incarnations themselves.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With this seventh book Anthony concludes his series called the Incarnations of Immortality. Previous works have focused on Death, Time, Fate, War, Earth, Evil; the subject here is the Incarnation of Good, and the setting is an alternate Earth where Magic and Science share power. Each of the offices of these Incarnations must be filled by a human who will not age while occupying the position. Following the theme of the series, this book is concerned with the transition to a new Incarnation of Good. Each Incarnation has different rules for change, and that of Good requires the agreement of all six other Incarnations, including Evil, a decided complication that the other five must deal with. Anthony's excellent prose and well-thought-out plotting deliver an enjoyable and logical surprise solution to the conflict, following the resolution of Luna Kaftan's critical vote (a subplot of the entire series).

From Library Journal

A campaign to replace the Incarnation of Good with a more active and concerned individual hinges on the successful resolution of a quest involving three unlucky young women--two of whom are ghosts. This grand finale to one of the author's most popular series showcases Anthony's multiple strengths: high humor, appealing characters, serious themes, and a surprising--although, in hindsight, inevitable--conclusion. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously people! Sept. 3 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was so excited to grab this book the other day. I loved the rest of the series and except for some slow spots gave this series a solid four out of five stars. Ten pages into this book and I had to take a double look at the front to make sure I had the right author. I can't think of a single reason why this book is getting good reviews here on Amazon but I just have to clear the air in case someone has the idea to read this book to cap off a great series. Skip it.
I still have about fifty pages to go but even if the ending is wonderful and totally takes me by suprise it still won't make up for this book ever having been written. Now just so it doesn't seem like I am giving such a negative review for no reason, I will tell you why it is so awful.
First, it is very repetitive. You basically know what is going to happen at every turn and even if you didn't, it really is boring. Also, this introduction of Vita, the new underage character who loves sex (not being paid, just doing it for free) is very annoying. As a character she is pretty shallow. Actually all the characters in this book are shallow. Orlene has to ask all the incarnations for a favor and EACH one tests her before they give her the item or perform the favor she asks, even though they all basically are related to her (Mother, Grandmother, Father, Stepfather, Lover, etc.). Very unrealistic (I know it's fantasy but c'mon, a little real human emotion wouldn't hurt.)
And the asking of favors and the testing her (them, actually but that is another boring aspect of this book I won't get into) is literally 200 pages. You know she will get the items in the end, so why strech it out? Why have Vita/Jolie/Orlene banging away with the Judge for pages on end? Boring, Boring stuff Piers and I wish you would have stuck to your guns and not wrote this piece, or at least tried to make it interesting.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst of the series. July 8 1998
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I find it odd that this book got so many good reviews. I have read and reread all of the books in the series save this one.Anthony said he at first thought that good and evil were best left to our own imagination, he was right about this one (good) but did succed briliantly with evil.If you are just starting this series stop at #6, I wish I had.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good ending to a good series Feb. 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"And Eternity" serves as a good ending to Anthony's excellent Incarnations of Immortality series. Throughout the series we are given hints as to the role of God. His position has been described as aloof, even to the point of doing little or nothing to counter the machinations of Satan. This book attempts to answer the question of God's laissez faire attitude. The story revolves around three main characters. Jolie returns from the last book in spirit form. Orlene, daughter of Gaiea also returns. A new character, Vita is introduced. Vita is a troubled teenager, trying to make ends meet through prostitution. Orlene and Jolie show up in an attempt to save Vita, for she is supposed to play a role in the fate of humankind. The trio wind up on a grand adventure in an attempt to replace the incarnation of God. The story climaxes with appearances by all of the incarnations, culminating in a marvelous plot twist. The end is a satisfying conclusion to the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars great series Aug. 14 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Its more like 2.5 stars. I read the other books in this series at a rate of a book every 2 days, they were that good. After finishing "For Love Of Evil", i could not wait to read this book. I cracked it open expecting to FINALY get to see God's point of view.....what a let down! I am curently more than half way through this book and there is no sign of God, just 3 women in 1 body (sound familiar?) doing what basicaly amounts to nothing. It seems Mr. Anthony just could not put himself in the mindset of God, and so decided to write this fluff. I will finsh this book sometime in the future because i want to see how this series ends, but as of now im to dissapointed to continue. I give the other books in this series no lower than 4 stars (most 5), but i couldnt do the same for this one. I'm sorry Mr. Anthony but you could have done much, much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing ending to an amazing series July 30 2001
By Shay
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a seasoned reader of Everthing Anthony, I can honestly say that I think Aspects Of Immortality is his very best series. Unlike the happy world of Xanth, these stories truly make the reader think. The characters are amazing, and I like the way Peirs always seems to find the meaning of his little universe.
This is undoubtedly the best book in the series in my opinion. It ties everything up buetifully.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kinda boring June 27 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the series as a whole, and even liked Love of Evil, because it was interesting. However, nothing really interesting actually happens in this book. The three main characters walk around, and make observations that God doesn't do anything. Plot-wise, I felt this last book of the series to be a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing end to a long, enjoyable series!! April 19 2001
By Kris
Format:Mass Market Paperback
And Eternity was a very enjoyable read. The addition of new characters made this story refreshing, but it also was sure to tie in all the characters from previous books in the series. The adventures of the new characters are exciting, as well as interesting because of the way their paths cross with the Incarnations and other characters you've met through the other six books. Anthony uses the characters whose personalities he has already developed with the new characters-- their interactions are fascinating; The end's twist is great! The settings in the book are just as interesting as always, and you are always kept on the edge of your seat from all the changes of scenery and also the plot developments. The underlying plot revolves around the need to replace the God of non-interferece (and non-action) and keeps hinting that different characters might become the next God, but who is finally chosen and the way he/she/it was chosen is great, and draws support and meaning from For Love of Evil. If you've read the other books from Incarnations of Immortality and are interested in the characters, and especially if you have an interest in mythology and theology, this is a Must-Read!
