Overview

Orb had a rare gift--the magic which manifested whenever she sang or played her harp. No one could resist her music. But she knew that greater magic lay in the Llano, the mystic music that controlled all things. The quest for the Llano occupied Orb's life. Until she met Natasha, handsome and charming, and an even finer musician. But her mother Niobe came as an Aspect of Fire, with the news that Orb had been chosen for the role of Incarnation of Nature--The Green Mother. But she also warned of a prophecy that Orb was to marry Evil. Could she be sure that Natasha was not really Satan, the Master of Illusion, laying a trap for her...?

Orb, daughter of Niobe, could not resist a man named Natasha, and all was lovely between them until Orb was chosen to be the Incarnation of Nature, the Green Mother. For prophecy said Orb would marry Evil. From the bestselling author of With a Tangled Skein. Advertising in science fiction magazines.

A young girl's lifelong pursuit of the ``Llano''the elusive Song of Natureleads her to her destiny as the Incarnation of Nature and tricks her into a bargain with the Incarnation of Evil to halt the world's destruction. This conclusion to one of Anthony's most popular series abounds with the author's love for logical conundrums and coy humor. Recommended. JC

    Nevin

    I love all Antony's Incarnations of Imortality books and how the characters are tied together in their lives as well as in their fight(s) against Satin. I just wish the publishers would get around to publishing "For Love of Evil" (Satin's story) and "And Eternity" (God's story) in ebook form!

    My favorite of the series. *Book source ~ Home library. Orb Ka

    My favorite of the series.

    *Book source ~ Home library.

    Orb Kaftan is born into a special family. Her father can make magical music and her mother was once an aspect of Fate. Her half-brother is a powerful magician and her niece can see auras and paint them. Orb herself has an incredible amount of music magic. As she grows her talent grows with her and when she becomes an adult she sets out to find the ultimate music of all, the Llano. Traveling all over Europe to various gypsy camps, she seeks the elusive music. In India she falls in love, but he’s taken from her. Continuing her quest in the United States has her meeting several new people who become important to her including Natasha, a handsome man who teaches her more about the Llano. But is everything the way it seems? Her mother has taken up the mantle of Fate again and comes to warn Orb about the prophecy that she will marry Evil and to offer her the job of the Green Mother. Orb has some big decisions to make and having lost one man she loved will she lose another?

    I know I’ve said that I love this series, but if I had to pick a favorite inside it I’d say this one was it. Of course, it’s been many years since I read books 6 & 7, so I’ll need to reread those to be sure, but for now, this book is the one. Starting when Orb is four and following her into adulthood I love reading about all she has experienced. Though she is a tad obsessive about the Llano, at least she’s a decent person. My favorite part of the whole book is at the end. I’ve cried each time I’ve read it and I can’t remember what happens in the next book. So, I’m really looking forward to reading For Love of Evil. Of course, neither library system near me has it and I have no idea where I’ve stored my copy. Gah!

    I Also Recommend:

    Slow

    Of the series, I disliked this book the most. Perhaps it was me, but I found the book to be slow and Orb to not be a very engaging character. For me the book doesn't really pick up until about the middle. Though I do find the interaction with Satan and Orb to be interesting enough to keep me reading.

    Ie recommend reading ONLY if you are a fan of the series and have read the previous four books...otherwise, move on.

    book number 6

    Incarnations of Immortality book number 5 was a good read. Being a Green Mother has Orb, the Incarnation of Nature, set against Satan. The twist is that Orb doesn't know if the man she's come to love, Natasha, is actually Satan or not. This book is filled with magical music, magic fish, magical stones....it's a pretty magical book! I found it more enjoyable than much of the series. It was an entertaining read. Now....on to book number 6.

    Great Series

    Excellent story. The series gets better and better with each book. It has probably one of the best ending in a series that I have ever read. The books are very thought provoking but never bore or come off as preachy. I really hated to see this series end because I really identified with alot of the characters and they all seemed very real.
