She was just a child, but in the dream she was a woman, beautiful, in a bridal gown, walking down a long aisle on the arm of a man she couldn't quite see.

Now it was time for her to learn the office she had assumed and so far neglected - to concentrate on being a Green Mother.

THE GIFT AND THE CURSE

Orb had a rare gift - the magic which manifested whenever she sang or played her harp.  No one could resist her music.  But greater magic than Orb's lay in the Llano, the mystic music that controlled all things.  The quest for the Llano occupied Orb's life.

Then she me Natasha.  He was handsome, charming - and an even finer musician than she.  Natasha began teaching Orb the music of the Llano, and she found herself falling in love with him.

Then Orb's mother Niobe came as an aspect of Fate, bearing the news that Orb was chosen for the role of the Incarnation of Nature - the Green Mother.  And Niobe warned Orb of the prophecy made years before - 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?

HERE IN THIS BRILLIANT FIFTH VOLUME OF THE INCARNATIONS OF IMMORTALITY, PIERS ANTHONY BRINGS HIS SERIES TO A SUSPENSE-FILLED PEAK.

  • 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.
