When life seemed pointless to Norton, he accepted the position as the Incarnation of Time, even though it meant living backward from present to past. The other seemingly all-powerful incantations of Immortality--Death, Fate, War, and Nature--made him welcome. Even Satan greeted him with gifts. But he soon discovered that the gifts were cunning traps and he had become enmeshed in a complex scheme of the Evil One to destroy all that was good....

Listened to this story on audio book--George Guidall is an amazing narrator for this series!! So on to my review--the first two disks were a 10 out of 10 for me!! Then, not so good--the next 2 disks were too much Sci Fi for me, and the space man kept coming back, although his second appearance I found more enjoyable. Also too much physics and theory of relativity. The last couple disks turned around and I LOVED the ending!! Overall a 7 out of 10 for me.
