Mym was a dutiful son, but his father the Rajah interferred in his lovelife once too ofte. Rather than wed without love, he took up the Red Sword, symbol of office of the incarnation of War. At first he thought his efforts could ameliorate some of the suffering caused by Earth's constant petty wars. But he found that behind all his involvement were the clever traps of Satan. When seeming mischance placed him in Hell, Mym organized a great rebellion and Satan seemed to capitulate. But free again, Mym learned that Satan had been busy stirring up riots and war. Now it seemed things had gone too far and Satan must surely win. There was only one desperate chance.
Book Four of Incarnations of Immortality, by Piers Anthony. "Mym was a dutiful son, but his father the Rajah interfered in his love life once too often. Rather than wed without love, he took up the Red Sword, symbol of office of the Incarnation of War...When seeming mischance placed him in Hell, Mym organized a great rebellion among the Damned..."
Book 4 in the Piers Anthony "Incarnations of Immortality" series. This is the story of the embodiment of 'War'.
Not my favortite, still liked 1 and 3 the best.
My husband loved this book.
Moral dilemmas a plenty, unique philosophy
One of the books in the Incarnations 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.
Great book from a great series.
Haven't read it, but Anthony is an amazing author otherwise...I'm just not into Sci-Fi Space novels.
