The Runes Of The Earthby Stephen Donaldson
Synopses & Reviews
In 1977, with the publication of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliver, Stephen Donaldson created a true phenomenon: an epic fantasy instant bestseller that has now sold millions and millions of copies across the world.
Thomas Covenant is mysteriously struck down by a disease believed eradicated; abandoned by his wife and young son, he becomes a pariah. Alone, despairing, Covenant falls - and is drawn into a mysterious new world where gentle people work magic and the earth itself brings healing. He is welcomed as the reincarnation of a legendary saviour, but Covenant is convinced he's having delusions. At the end of the sixth book, as Covenant battles to save the world, he is killed - in both worlds - as Dr Linden Avery, his horrified companion, looks on.
Now comes the book every fantasy reader has been waiting for. It's ten years later and Linden Avery thought she would never see the Land, or Covenant, her beloved, again. But Lord Foul has stolen her adopted son, and is unmaking the very laws of nature. And though she believes Covenant dead, he keeps sending Linden messages: 'Find me', 'You're the only one who can do this' and 'Remember that I'm dead'. The Land is in turmoil, and Lord Foul has plans for them all . . .
Subtitled, "The Last Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant". This is the book that every fantasy reader has been waiting for. Set ten years after the sixth book in the "Covenant" series, it features the return of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Linden Avery thought she would never see the Land or Thomas again. But when Lord Foul steals her adopted son, she receives messages that can only be coming from Thomas. The two previous trilogies have sold more than 6 million copies, and each book was a number 1 bestseller.
