And Eternity - Piers Anthony

This is Book Seven of the Incarnations of Immortality, the last in the series.  Written in the late 80's, it is opinionated about the state of the world, from the environment, religion, politics, feminism and war.  It's the final installment telling of the roles of the 7 incarnations: Nature, Fate, War, Death, Time, Evil and Good and their struggle to save the world.  It's fantasy and has been a hoot to read.

My favorite read of this author's was the first of the series, "On a Pale Horse".  And, his "end notes", the stories he tells at the end of every book of how the book was written and what was going on in his life at the time.

If you've never dabbled in reading Fantasy this series might be a good place to start.  Anthony is better known for his Xanth series, now on its 26th volume.
