Book 3 of 8 in the Incarnations of Immortality Series. Its extremely sexist, the characters are not all that well developed and the conflict isn't really very interesting. I thought the role of Fate was one of the more boring, which was a big dissapointment to me because I expected to find it a lot more interesting than it was.

Incarnations of Immortality is the name of an eight-book fantasy series by Piers Anthony. The first seven books each focus on one of seven supernatural "offices" (Death, Time, Fate, War, Nature, Evil, Good and Night) in a fictional reality. The first seven books each focus on one of seven supernatural "offices" (Death, Time, Fate, War, Nature, Evil, Good and Night) in a fictional reality and history parallel to ours, with the exception that society has advanced both magic and modern technology. The series covers the adventures and struggles of a group of humans called "Incarnations", who hold these supernatural positions for a certain time.

Here in this third complete-in-itself novel of the Incarnations of Immortality, Piers Anthony weaves a fascinating plot as tangled as any skein of fate. This is Anthony at his most ingenious, with another gripping fantasy of the struggle of the incarnations against the machinations of Satan. When the man Niobe loved was shot, she learned that she had been the target, in a devious plot of the Devil's. Niobe accepted a position as one of the three Aspects of Fate, only to find that Satan's plots were tangled into the very Tapestry of Fate.

With a Tangled Skein book. I picked up this book in part because I'd heard a lot of good things about Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series and in part because it revolved around one of my favourite mythological trios, the three Fates. On both counts I was disappointed. Misogyny and racefail abound.

I read these books many years ago and wanted to re-read them.

I've read the first two and am now about 3/4 the way through the third (this one - "With A Tangled Skein").

I'm enjoying the books as much as I did many years ago, BUT - This one seems to have a large number of typo's. Multiple typo's per chapter. I have the original paperback (yes, I bought a kindle version even though I have it in paperback - I just prefer reading things on Kindle!) so I've checked and the problem is NOT in the original book.

I find it odd since "On a Pale Horse" and "Bearing an Hourglass" did not have this problem. I'm guessing it is a poor scan from book to Kindle and Amazon never had anyone proof-read the scanned copy before making it available for sale.

Come on, Amazon - you're better than that.

3 stars due to the bad scanning - otherwise it's still one of my favorite book series and I'd recommend it.

I loved reading these books when I was younger, and I had access to them as the actual books. I later bought the last 4 books in the series and never realized that I didn't have the first 3 so, I bought them for Kindle because I didn't want to wait. They are, in most respects, the exact same books. However, the problem is that whoever is doing the conversions from paper to electronics IS NOT PROOFREADING. I'm already mostly done with the book and have found numerous typos, symbols instead of letters in words, or just plain gibberish for words. I've read the original book and these are not in evidence. So, this e-book is convenient in that you get it fast, but it pales compared to the real book in your hands because someone is not doing their jobs in transcribing it. Too many times have I read "Ced-ric" instead of Cedric as it should have been. I shall try to see if I can notify Amazon about this, but I plan to eventually buy the paperback.

When I first read "On a Pale Horse" (book one of the Incarnations of Immortality series) I was utterly blown away. It was a fantastic, thought provoking, highly original and imaginative story, and I couldn't wait to read the next in the series.

Next came "Bearing an Hourglass". Whilst nowhere near as good as On a Pale Horse, it was still enjoyable and had some interesting and original ideas.

Then came "With a Tangled Skein". With a Tangled Skein is not as good as Bearing an Hourglass, and totally inferior to On a Pale Horse.

I am sorry to say that I see a pattern here, and it is not one I like so much. It seems that I like each book in the series less than the one before it.

There are a lot of things wrong with With a Tangled Skein. Its extremely sexist, the characters are not all that well developed and the conflict isn't really very interesting. I thought the role of Fate was one of the more boring, which was a big dissapointment to me because I expected to find it a lot more interesting than it was.

The overall conflict concerning Satan was poorly done. Satan was a very shallow character, uninteresting and not at all very frightening. There was no sense of danger to the main character, and for the most part, I found much of that part of the story very dull.

This was a weak, uninteresting book. I did read it, and I got through it quite quickly. I enjoyed it enough to finish it, but I was left feeling that I'd wasted my time. I thought things might pick up towards the end, but they didn't.

This is another installment in the series and if you have gotten to this novel than you must be hooked with the series. The interesting thing about all of the novels is how Anthony interconnects all of the characters. While some of the plot elements might seem to repeat themselves slightly, the character development and interaction is what kept me so interested as it was quite well done.

I loved this book, and it's narrator Niobe is a force. I am also surprised by the strong, pro female tone of the book, especially having come from a male writer in the 1980's

This book was wonderful. I couldn't put the Kindle down. I loved the way the book was worded and where things went in this story.
There was nothing I disliked. I would give this book an A++ marking.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great fantasy. Even to those who just want a great book to read.
Once you start this book, I'm better sure, you will not be able to put it down.

I Love Piers Anthony! I have the entire Incarnations of Immortality series and love it! Have read it again and again! Will continue to buy them until he no longer writes them, may he live forever!!
This is a good book, but the Kindle edition was clearly made by scanning the pages with OCR and then not proofreading. There are so many typos. Some make it difficult to understand the text, and others make for unintentional comedy: "The vision of the huge spider had Anally convinced her that Atropos meant business"- clearly that capital A was meant to be "fi", but ouch.
