‘Thrilling.’ Sir Hugh Walpole
‘Remarkable … a rare power of inventive imagination.’ Times Literary Supplement
That night he lay on the slopes between the stems of the ripple trees with the sweet-scented, wind-proof, delicately-whispering roof above his head, and when morning came he resumed his journey. At first he climbed through dense mists. When these parted, he found himself so high that the concave of the sea seemed to close him in on every side but one: and on that one he saw the rose-red peaks, no longer very distant, and a pass between the nearest ones through which he caught a glimpse of something soft and flushed. And now he began to feel a strange mixture of sensations – a sense of perfect duty to enter that secret place which the peaks were guarding with an equal sense of trespass. He dared not go up that pass: he dared not do otherwise.
In the second novel in C.S Lewis's classic sci-fi trilogy, Dr Ransom travels to the planet of Perelandra, a beautiful Eden-like world. He is horrified to find that his old enemy, Dr Weston, has also arrived and is intent upon evil plans once more. As the mad Weston's body is taken over by the forces of evil, Ransom engages in a desperate struggle to save the innocence of Perelandra.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
