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

From the Back Cover:

VOLUME THREE IN THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT, THE UNBELIEVER

Since its first publication in 1977, Stephen Donaldson’s bestselling 'Thomas Covenant' trilogy has become an indisputable classic – acclaimed around the world as the most compelling work of epic fantasy since Tolkien’s 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Twice before, Covenant had been summoned to the strange other-world where magic worked. Twice he had joined with the Lords of Revelstone in their war against Lord Foul, the ancient enemy of the Land. Now he had returned – to a Land ravaged by Foul’s armies. The Lords were besieged and helpless, and Foul’s victory seemed certain. Only Covenant could avert it. Without hope, he set out to confront the might of the Enemy. With him went a Giant, a Bloodguard and the madwoman he had wronged. And in Foul’s Creche, Lord Foul grew in power with each new defeat for the Land.

“An irresistible epic ... imagination, heroism and excitement, made all the more real by Donaldson’s deft handling of the rich history of the Land.”
CHICAGO DAILY NEWS
