I have just finished book 1,On a Pale Horse. Any input on the rest of the series. I really enjoyed the first one.

Nobody? Is this series a bad subject?

I loved it. I think Bearing an Hourglass was one of my favorites. It is an excellent series. Although On a Pale Horse was a close second. Of course, I read it about twenty years ago. I might have to round them up again and reread.

My husband loves these books.  At one time I had the whole series listed on my shelf, I am not sure how many are left now though.  But I have quite a bit of sci-fi on my shelf of his if you would like to take a look.

I haven't read them but my husband did.  He loved them.  I think it's one of his favorite series.  He's not a big fiction reader.  Mostly biographies etc and sci fi short stories.   I'm guessing the rest of the books must have been as good as the first because he kept reading the series.  Not sure if that helps you but I figured I'd mention it.

I just started gathering these up to read again. I was addicted to all things Piers my senior year, so it's been a while since I have read them. I am looking forward to getting reaquainted ;)

This series is fantastic...much better than the Xanth series. And they all tie together. Awesome series and awesome characters :D

I thought they were great!  I liked them all . . . each for their own story and characters.

FYI the last two he never intended on writing.  He was just going to write about the incarnations -- not God or Satan.  The series took hold and he had to finish it by writing those.

I  loved the whole series.  Definitely recommend it to readers of that genre.

Thanx for all the great feedback! I have ordered the second one and am looking forward to reading it! I love the whole phylosophy of the incarnations being human.
