On a Pale Horse (Incarnations of Immortality #1)

On a Pale Horse - Piers Anthony

Like many others, I first read this book in high school and loved it. Now, I read this in my thirties, and find that while it is very dated in its treatment of women, it also still makes me think just as much as I did back then.

What really gets me about this book is that it challenges traditional ideas about the facets of Christianity. It makes you consider that the roles of Good and Evil are just jobs that are held more so than all powerful beings that don't care about the mortals they are trying to win to their respective camps.

Zane was a very easy to relate to character, and I liked his moments of crisis. Luna also was an interesting character to see in action, especially when she began to see beyond Zane's exterior. I also really liked the descriptiveness of the world building that was done.

All in all, it was an enjoyable return to a slice of my teenage years, and I'll likely continue the series at some point!
