Since its publication in 1977, Stephen Donaldson’s award-winning trilogy has become an indisputable fantasy classic, hailed by the critics and loved by millions of readers around the world. Now all three books are available in one paperback volume for the first time.
“In ths enormous fantasy, the timeless battle of good and evil is played out against a stunningly detailed and imaginative alternate-world background – giants, cave-dwellers, intelligent horses, strange beasts, potent talismans, and men with incomprehensible powers. The hero, a modern American transported mysteriously to this strange environment, manages to make it all believable because he has trouble believing it himself. Donaldson has created a classic.”
“Something entirely out of the ordinary … you’ll want to go straight through 'Lord Foul’s Bane, The Ilearth War' and 'The Power That Preserves' at one sitting.”
“A trilogy of remarkable scope and sophistication.”
