Series: Incarnations of Immortality
(From the publisher):
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 Incarnations of Immortality -- Death, Fate, War, and Nature -- made him welcome. Even Satan greeted him with gifts. But he soon discovered the gifts were cunning traps. While he had been distracted, he had become enmeshed in a complex scheme of the Evil One to destroy all that was good.
In the end, armed only with the Hourglass, Norton was forced to confront the immense power of Satan directly. And though Satan banished him to Hell, he was resolved to fight on.
