No dedication.
Niobe was the most beautiful young woman of her generation, with hair like buckwheat honey and eyes like the sky on a misty summer morning and a figure that was better imagined than described.

She knew she had a long and satisfying role ahead of her as Lachesis.

THE WOMAN WHO WANTED REVENGE

When the man Niobe loved was shot, she learned that she had been the target, in a devious plot of the Devil's.

Hoping for revenge, Niobe accepted a position as one of the three Aspects of Fate, only to find that Satan's plots where tangled into the very Tapestry of Fate.  Now the Evil One was laying a trap to ruin Niobe's granddaughter Luna, who threatened his plans - and he had tricked her son into Hell.

Niobe's only chance to save her son and Luna was to accept a challenge by the Prince of Deceit - a challenge to be decided in Hell and in a maze of Satan's devising!

HERE IN THIS THIRD COMPLETE-IN-ITSELF NOVEL OF THE INCARNATIONS OF IMMORTALITY, PIERS ANTHONY WEAVES A FASCINATING PLOT AS TANGLED AS ANY SKIEN OF FATE.  THIS IS ANTHONY AT HIS MOST INGENIOUS, WITH ANOTHER GRIPPING FANTASY OF THE STRUGGLE OF THE INCARNATIONS AGAINST THE MACHINATIONS OF SATAN.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
