The Runes of the Earth

More than twenty years ago, Stephen R. Donaldson set a literary landmark with the first fantasy bestseller. His New York Times bestselling series, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, transformed modern fantasy. Now, at long last, Donaldson introduces the first novel of the much-awaited, four-volume finale to the series that's sold more than ten million copies.Thomas Covenant lost everything. Abandoned by his wife and child, sick and alone, he was transported while unconscious to a magical, dreamlike world called the Land. Convinced it was all a delusion, Covenant was christened The Unbeliever by the Land's inhabitants-but gave his life to save this newfound world he came to regard as precious.Ten years after Covenant's death, Linden Avery still mourns for her beloved companion. But a violent confrontation with Covenant's son- who is doing the evil Lord Foul's bidding-forces her back to the Land, where a dark malevolence is about to unmake the laws of nature-and of life and death itself.

Praise for The Runes of the Earth "A reawakening of a classic fantasy saga."--Library Journal "Startlingly original antiheroic fantasy resonating with echoes of both Tolkien and Philip K. Dick."--Publishers Weekly "An epic with page-turning intrigue."--Detroit Free Press "Impressive...filled with splendid inventions."--Booklist "The most important and original work of epic fantasy after Tolkien...Rich in paradox, metaphor, and symbolism, Donaldson continues his explorations into the psyches of his characters, as well as themes of estrangement, despair, guilt and responsibility. Intricately plotted...Donaldson's writing remains one of the most original and intellectually challenging works to have graced contemporary epic fantasy."--SF Site
