Excellent, original fantasy series. The Incarnaions of Immortality was my introduction to Piers Anthony and, I think, his best work. I think there are eight or nine books in this series, and Being a Green Mother is somewhere in the middle. Technically, since each book does stand on it's own, the series does not have to be read in any specific order, but I would suggest starting at the begining with "On a Pale Horse." 5 stars, fantastic read!
One of the books in the Incarnation of Immortality series. These books are enjoyable and I would recommend them to any adolescent reader. If you have or know reluctant readers, this series is one I would recommend.
This was my first taste of what I would call an urban fantasy or modern day fantasy. At the time I was not entirely sure what to make of it. It was a good book. Not too sure what to think of the ship she sailed. Thinking back to it now it was not a bad story. I listened to it as an audio book that I checked out from the library. I picked it based on title and the fact that I knew the author back from BBS days. I had never read anything of his. It was time to jump out of the box. I would probably enjoy it more today than I did when I listened to it all those years ago in 2002.
