The Wounded Land (the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant)From the Back Cover:
VOLUME ONE OF 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 returns unwillingly to a Land ravaged by four thousand years of Lord Foul’s pestilence. Under the evil Sunbane, the people of the Land submit to cruel sacrifices; the rulers of Revelstone are corrupt, the fields and forests laid waste; the healing Earth-power impotent. Accompanied by a woman from his own world, Covenant begins a new quest to save the Land from the forces that have all but destroyed it.
“The most original fantasy since 'The Lord of the Rings' … outstanding. If there is any justice in the literary world, Donaldson will earn the right to stand shoulder to shoulder with Tolkien.”
