The Climax of the Entire Thomas Covenant Chronicles

After more than three decades, having attained bestseller status all over the world, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant reaches its conclusion. This is a truly historic moment in fantasy, as Stephen R. Donaldsons innumerable fans learn the final fate of the Land.

The Worm of the Worlds End is roused, seeking the ruin of all things....

Compelled step-by-step to actions whose consequences they could neither foresee nor prevent, Thomas Covenant and Linden Avery have fought for what they love in the magical reality known only as “the Land.” Now they face their final crisis. Reunited after their separate struggles, they discover in each other their true power—and yet they cannot imagine how to stop the Worm of the Worlds End from unmaking Time. Nevertheless, they must resist the ruin of all things, giving their last strength in the service of the worlds continuance.

You risk much, as you have ever done. Mayhap you will prevail. If you do not, your worth is not thereby diminished.

 

Review:

"The long-awaited 10th and concluding episode in Donaldson's sprawling epic of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever (after Against All Things Ending) opens with Thomas gravely injured but cured of the malady of mind that had impeded his ability to save the Land. In the meantime, the Worm of the World's End and She Who Must Not Be Named have both been roused, and 'the last crisis of Earth' is at hand. By the novel's end, Thomas, his wife, and her son will all have made extraordinary sacrifices to rebuild and redeem the Earth, following the collapse of the Arch of Time and the liberation of Lord Foul the Despiser. Although richly allegorical, the novel's great strength is the warm humanity of its characters, who distinguish themselves by repeatedly confronting and overcoming their personal frailties. Donaldson's fans will find this a fitting finale 36 years in the making. Agent: Howard Morhaim, Howard Morhaim Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

“It will take a long time for fans or critics to digest and appreciate Donaldson's almost 40-year achievement. But in time “T he Chronicles of Thomas Covenant” will be seen as one of the self-defining works of the third millennium, our equivalent in scope and ambition of earlier epics and fantasies, from Virgil's “Aeneid” to Tennyson's “Arthurian Idylls” and Tolkien's “Lord of the Rings,” the last now a lifetime (Donaldson's own) in the past.” -The Wall Street Journal
