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.
After bitter defeat on the Isle of the One Tree, Thomas Covenant, Linden Avery and the Giants of the Search take ship again. Across the frozen oceans they return to the Land, now perilously close to destruction from the ravages of the Sunbane. Drawn inexorably towards the caverns deep below Mount Thunder, Covenant and Linden Avery prepare to meet their bitterest foe. Even the white gold they carry may not serve against Lord Foul’s powers. For once the wild magic is released, the Arch of Times will crack, and Lord Foul’s conquest of the Land will be assured.
“Stunningly detailed and imaginative … Donaldson has created a classic.”
