One thought on “Wielding a Red Sword

  1. Lauren

    Original review 2 stars This series has been a roller coaster ride for me I thoroughly enjoyed books 1 3 but struggled to even finish 2 4.I think I may have liked Wielding a Red Sword the least, which I didn t think possible after reading Bearing an Hourglass At least I liked Norton and Orlene I can t say the same about Mim and Rapture The only thing that kept me going was the connection to Orb.I am so curious about Orlene and Sning and hope to get some resolution on that front in number 5 I rea [...]

    I only have a couple of the Incarnations of Immortality series, because it is a wildly uneven series as a whole Anthony, predictably, can t write female protagonists worth a damn, and the one about Time is straight out of pulp space opera for no obvious reason and this was 3 on my list of the three that I can stand.It s kind of awful But first, the good bits 1 This book was totally the reason I bought a translation of The Book of Five Rings at age 12, and that is a profound and fascinating work [...]

  3. Elizabeth Rose

    Took me so long to read because I couldn t bring myself to want to put myself through the misery Characters are slightly developed here than in other books, but this one reeks with racism unfair, one dimensional stereotypes of Indians , sexism woman s suffrage is taught to the poor, backwards Indian woman by a demon of hell, the only women worth Mym s time are pure virgins, Mym outright talks about the whole men are allowed to sleep with many women, but women should know only one man and is che [...]

  4. Jason

    After the series improved a bit with the third installment, I had hopes for subsequent books, but after slogging through this I am turning my back on Piers Anthony and the rest of his Incarnations of Immortality series Anthony is a prolific and best selling author, but I just don t like his style The characterizations are thin and too often stereotypical, the dialogue is usually stilted and unnatural, and the philosophy behind the Incarnations isn t all that thought provoking in part, I suspect, [...]

  5. An Odd1

    The first of the series shows Death as imperfect youth who grows into responsibility, eases pain and suffering Likewise, War serves purposes in society Groups, rather than teenage individuals, rebel and gain independence Masculine aggressive hormones are channeled to larger goals Remembered pluses bury under blather in re read Mym stutters under dictator father Rajah, runs away Orb sings, her suggestion stops his speech impediment He falls in a forever after kind of love, twice Honeymoon Castle [...]

  6. Peter

    A compelling collaboration between real life and fantasy This, the fourth book in the Incarnations Of Immortality series, has to be the most compelling It begins in a travelling circus in India, where we first meet the main character Mym, a mysterious character who gradually throughout the book we get to know, like and sympathise with due to a speech impediment Mym befriends, and falls in love with, a young and beautiful musician called Orb, with whome we met as a child in the previous Incarnati [...]

  7. Jaime Krause

    This is of a 4.5 stars as I felt like I was able to get into it faster than with books 2 3.As with the previous 3 novels, Wielding a Red Sword weaves the main Incarnation s life with those of others we have met before This is about War, who was known as Mym as a mortal He was in love with Orb, Lachesis daughter, and sends is current love Rapture to stay with Luna Lachesis granddaughter and Death s lover during the day And, as usual, Satan puts his hand where it doesn t belong, trying to force t [...]

  8. Anastacia

    I ve read this book a few times over the years, and I ll state the same thing at the beginning of reviewing all the I of I books this is a re read, and the first time reviewing the books I m reviewing all of the books after I finished re reading the entire series, which I don t normally do didn t do deliberately this time, eitherOK this is another one in the series I liked Mym is a sexist jerk, but he s a product of his upbringing and Piers Anthony wrote him that way, so it s not Mym s fault he [...]

  9. Don LaFountaine

    Book 4 of The Incarnations series is about the Incarnation of War, Mars Another wonderful addition to this series.It follows Mym, who is forced to leave a woman he loves in order to marry another woman all in the name of what s best for his country Then after he falls in love with this second woman, it ends up that the only way he can stay with her and not be forced to marry another is to become Mars All thanks, of course, to Satan He then starts to tempt Mym by sweetening the pot, so to speak, [...]

  10. Melissa

    This book lost some of the balance present in 3, and is merely getting 3 stars not because of the story itself but because I just didn t like it as much AND the main character Mym, as a woman, his views of women and their purpose is a tad offensive HAHA But I guess that s what you get when you have a backward thinking Hindu prince expecting a wife AND a harem His nature is tempered by his first love, but becomes increasingly noticeable throughout the book It seems that his main motivation for do [...]

    It s been ages since I read On a Pale Horse and though the details are hazy, I remember enjoying it So when I won this as the consolation prize after a narrow whiskey soaked defeat at the local pub quiz, I thought perhaps I was the winner after all No such luck My delusuions have been dispelled I am and shall remain a loser I haven t read any of the other Incarnation books, and now I doubt that I will, unless the sadistic quiz master continues to foist them upon the also rans While Pale Horse s [...]

  12. Andy

    I recently heard a fascinating This American Life segment that tangentially involved Piers Anthony It piqued my curiosity so I randomly selected this novel from my library The book was published in 1986 and by today s standards would be considered YA I viewed the plot as Anthony placing some Reagan era foreign policy hot spots against a standard fantasy tale with swords, apparitions and nymphs If I read this when I was 15 I would have thought it was awesome so you can say gaining context is both [...]

  13. Misty Dawn

    not as good as the first three on a pale horse being the bestd while i know i m not his target audience, per se, putting female virginity on such a high pedestal is getting old i noticed it from the beginning, but this one really pushed it past endurance the only female of significance who s had sex before finding her one true partner is a demoness of course the evil seductress who refuses to be shy for impure concubine, the virgin maiden in a tower for princess maybe my infatuation with the ser [...]

  14. Dusty

    This series was delightful Not only were the characters well rounded, but the story lines made me think in new ways I completely enjoyed the author s views I also was amazed that each book stood alone so well and were all designed so they could be read in any order with no loss of ideas or integrity to the story I have always had difficulty with understanding war the ideas and concepts in this book aided than any history or ethics class.

  15. Debs

    I liked the irony in this one the book spends time on love than anything else, and learning how to function in his office is almost incidental And when it s not love, it s a continuous seduction attempt by a concubine Fun, fun It s also cool that Mars is a Hindu, and is thrown into this Heaven or Hell mentality when he s into the Reincarnation idea.

  16. Jeanne

    Fourth in the Incarnations of Immortality series,I found this story great if, for no other reason, the Incarnation of War, Mars, actually realizing his romantic interest in the end George Guidall, as in the previous stories, does an awesome job as narrator and really brings the story to life 7 out of 10 on this one for me.

  17. Mike (the Paladin)

    Not a bad read Wonder what Anthony thinks of war Anyway, I found the Incarnations of Immortality series to as you may be used to me saying if you ve read many of my reviews run hot and cold I burned out on them fairly quickly.

  18. Erik Akre

    Piers Anthony holds the same place in my heart held by cheap paperback Star Wars novelists It is a perfectly fine and good place in my heart He does what he does, and on his own terms he delivers For example, in the bizarre and extensive author s note addended to this novel, Anthony tells his readers about the fan mail he receives, and one letter illustrates the point A fan wrote and thanked Anthony for his novels, because they helped ease the boredom of a long convalescence And there you have i [...]

  19. Matt Guion

    The fourth book in the Incarnations of Immortality series focuses around the Incarnation of War I feel like this book had the potential to be as good as On a Pale Horse War, like Death, is a difficult subject with many facets and many moral implications to discuss and explore And the book does resemble On a Pale Horse in some ways All of the books thus far have a similar structure The first part introduces the mortal character and shows how he or she becomes the Incarnation The second shows us t [...]

  20. Tim

    The world almost ends because Mars is trying to get laid There I saved you several hours of reading.I m not kidding This book spent time focusing on the perils of Mars lovelife than it did on the actual job of Mars War was the one job that had been mostly a mystery up until now and it remains as such Only two battles were supervised and the most we learned was that Mars has 4 sub aspects that apparently do stuff and that he can phase into people No mention of the fact that in previous books oth [...]

  21. Joy

    Another good oneI do enjoy this series greatly The Authors note at the end is always interesting, it seems Piers Anthony has a very interesting home life I loved the part about the computer system, it s so outdated as to be hilarious This book series seems fresh and contemporary, and then the author note hits you with a blast from the past indeed, I was too young to read when this book was written, and I have a reading aged child I will be reading the entire series, so stay posted for the next r [...]

  22. Chris Evans

    read this a while back, can t remember exactly when As I recall, I read it as a stand alone and had no issue in doing so, it was pretty self contained Didn t realize Piers Anthony was the writer It s better than his Xanth series I guess, but it s still got all the annoying Piers Anthony tropes, but the lack of the obnoxious puns helps a lot Not that I d recommend this, there are too many good books out there to waist on low tier writing like this.

  23. Shawn

    This one was just a little too sexually frustrated teenage boy understanding of sex and relationships for me Kind of like American Pie or Seinfeld, I want to continue liking it and give the writer the benefit of the doubt, but the perspective, regardless of intent, doesn t translate well for a contemporary audience.And it s kinda rapey.

  24. Adam Duclos

    Mym loves Orb, but his rich family separates them He has Sning to her Later, Satan orchestrates world peace so that the old incarnation of War is replaced by a new one Mym and sends demoness Lilah to corrupt him However, Lilah falls in love with Mym instead and together they thwart Satan

  25. Kreg

    Somewhat different perspective on the God of War, it was very interesting to have Piers Anthony blend Hindu mythos into the mix The Prince Princess dynamic did become a bit tedious at times, but served it s purpose.

  26. Moonny

    I remember Mars s book as one of the weaker point of the first 5 books, but right now, after 15 years of life experience, I very much enjoyed the story, plot and the ideas behind Because now I understand some of those

  27. Charlie Devlin

    A good story and expansion into the world of the incarnations The book is kept back by the main character, Mym, who never seemed incredibly interesting and had way to many love interests The last one of which had very little chemistry with Mym, providing no stacks to their relationship.
