VOLUME TWO 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'.
After scant days in his ‘real’ world, Thomas Covenant found himself summoned once more to the Land. There, forty bitter years had passed while Lord Foul, immortal enemy of the Land, moved to fulfil his prophecy of doom. The Council of Lords found their spells useless, now that Foul the Despiser held the Illearth Stone, ancient source of evil power. High Lord Elena turned in desperation to Covenant and the legendary white gold magic of his ring, but nobody knew how to use the white gold – least of all Thomas Covenant.
“Comparable to Tolkien at his best … a remarkable achievement, which will certainly find a place on the small list of true classics.”
