Stephen Donaldson's bestselling work includes two award-winning Thomas Covenant trilogies; two collections of short stories, Daughter of Regals and Reave the Just; and the two books in the Mordant's Need series, The Mirror of Her Dreams and A Man Rides Through.

Chaos and Order finds the author remorselessly turning up the heat under a bunch of players already at boiling point, allegiances and agendas feverishly shifting as their options run out.' Time Out
