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.
As a devout RAH fan I had some serious doubts as to it even being possible for anyone to pick up on a Heinline thought and bring it to bring to anything more entertaining than you r run of the mill sci-fi television show, but Spider Robison does the most amazing job in this book as both “coauthor” and narrator.
I really hope Spider takes the time to come back to this novel, yes there are many unanswered questions.
I would defiantly recommend this book to any Sci-Fi Reader, possibly even to someone’s first taste of the genre.
Though this is the third of the series, this book is so very well written and narrated, it is very hard to put down once it starts. Niobe is so very lovable and watching her develop is so much fun. As with the other Incarnations books, the author gives a wonderful note at the end that is very revealing in to the magic that makes a Piers Anthony story a story that reaches his readers. If you have any doubts in this series give this a listen, you will not be disappointed at all.
This book has interesting twists, Heinlein gives a quirky look at what it might be like if a super power lost control. Well worth the read, not to predictable. Lloyd James (Narrator) does very well giving the book quite an exciting feel. As you read this keep in mind it was written in the 1950's so the predictions for the year 2000 are a bit off but it does make the book quite charming.
I have waited for this title to be brought to Audible. I was not dispointed at all, Definately worth the time to listen. Piers has a light hearthen way of poking fun at a very serious issue. Narration was quite good exceded my expectations. If you like this one there a 6 more in the series.
