9780007127849: The Power That Preserves (Voyager Classics)

The concluding volume in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever, now part of the Voyager Classics collection.

Twice before Thomas Covenant had been summoned to the strange other-world where magic worked. Twice he had been forced to join with the Lords of Revelstone in their war against Lord Foul, the ancient enemy of the Land.

Now he is back – to a Land ravaged by the armies of Lord Foul. The Lords are besieged and helpless. No place is safe and Foul’s victory seems certain. Only Covenant can avert it.

Desperately and without hope, he sets out to confront the might of the Enemy. With him go a Giant, a Bloodguard and the madwoman he has wronged. And in Foul’s Creche, Lord Foul grows in power with each new defeat for the Land.

Review:

‘An irresistible epic … imagination, heroism, excitement, made all the more real by Donaldson’s deft handling of the rich history of the Land.’ Chicago Daily News

‘Donaldson has a vivid and unrestrained imagination … he writes well and wields symbols powerfully.’ Washington Post

‘Something entirely out of the ordinary … you’ll want to go straight through Lord Foul’s Bane, The Illearth War and The Power that Preserves at one sitting’ The Times

‘The Thomas Covenant saga is a remarkable acheivement which will certainly find a place on the small list of all true classics’ Washington Post

‘A feast for epic fantasy addicts’ Publishers Weekly
