VOLUME TWO IN THE SECOND CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT.
The unforgettable character of Thomas Covenant is back in Stephen Donaldson's second classic trilogy – a magnificent fantasy saga that has become a phenomenal worldwide bestseller.
Thomas Covenant and Linden Avery flee from the Land, and embark with the Giants on a desperate search for the One Tree, the powerful life-force whose branches alone can re-make the Staff of Law. They leave the Sunbane-ravaged shores they know for a new world where awesome creatures attack them at sea – and strangely powerful new races both welcome and threaten them on Land. Lord Foul sends his Ravers to harry Covenant and all who help him. Before them lies the prize that can vanquish the Sunbane – or wreak the devastation that Lord Foul seeks …
“Thomas Covenant fighting in a fabulous land against strange enemies with supernatural powers … magnificently sustained … millions of readers on both sides of the Atlantic rave about this series.”
Stephen Donaldson was born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio. Between the ages of three and sixteen he lived in India, where his father, an orthopaedic surgeon, worked with leprosy sufferers. This inspired his fictional character, Thomas Covenant.
Donaldson served two years as a conscientious objector doing hospital work in Akron, then attended Kent State University, where he received his M.A. in English in 1971. He now lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
