Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's 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). (Jan.)
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.

You would think the final battle between good-evil would be more eventful.

A wonderful fianl chapter to the Immortality series. Fantastic viewpoints, and a well detailed novel. By far the best of all the Immortality seires. I laughed, I cried, a truly wonderful book. Thou I am a bit saddened that my favorite Piers Anthony series has come to an end.

I have been quite impressed by the Incarnations of Immortality series... Anthony does a wonderful job of tying together many supposedly divergent viewpoints on the nature of human life. Books 1-5 were brilliant! Book 6, For Love of Evil, was okay, but I don't think quite as good. With this last book, I think Piers Anthony overreached himself - while bringing the series to a neat and tidy conclusion, he failed to create a convincing character to assume the role of God.

Once again, Piers Anthony has done it. He has concluded another great series with another great ending book. This book focuses on the aspect of Good, showing us that Good is not always good, and Evil is not always evil. In this series, he raises questions, that I never would have thought of. He is the master. If you are looking for humorous,yet philosophical sci-fi, fantasy reading, this series is for you! In this erotic, yet playful book, he shows us what the world could come to if we let evil get the best of us. Enjoy!!:-))

And Eternity is book seven of the Incarnations of Immortality series. It was okay but nothing spectacular. With the premise of the book being the take over of the office of god I guess I was expecting something a little more dazzling. Overall the book (and much of the series) was pretty boring. That's not to say that it didn't have some coolness about it though. There were some interesting characters and situations but I have to say I'm looking forward to the end of this series.
