On a Pale Horse

By the time I read this book, I was already a big Discworld fan.  The character Death from that series, and the novel Mort in particular, are parodies of On a Pale Horse.  So from the start I had a special enjoyment of this book.

It’s about a down-on-his-luck guy who takes over the office of Death, and then gets involved in some cosmic struggle of good versus evil.  The book started off really well, with cleverness and intrigue and an engaging story.  As it went along it got a little weak, but it was still a pretty good book overall.

This was the first in an eight book series called Incarnations of Immortality.  Will I read more of the volumes?  Maybe.
