"Donaldson's Land is still a beautiful and marvelously complex place full of strange peoples. It really does compare, as indeed it's supposed to, with Tolkien's Middle Earth. There are many vivid moments to savour." (Gideon Kibblewhite DEATHRAY)
Fatal Revenant is eventful and original. (Barabara Davies STARBURST)
This is Donaldson back to his scintillating best. A journey well worth taking. (WATERSTONES.COM)
Fatal Revenant is for aficionados who crave high fantasy tales with depth and substance. (PAT's FANTASY HOTLIST)
There simply are not enough stars to award this book. It is not a lightweight, fluff piece, but an intense, mentally stimulating, and utterly satisfying read. Questions that have abided since Lord Foul's Bane are clarified, characters develop, and old themes echo from the prior series. It breaks my heart to finish a story like this. (THE ETERNAL NIGHT)
Return to the Land, and Linden Amory's quest to rescue her son and save the Land from the Despiser!See all Product description

I read the whole set in a week, finishing one and buying the next. I advise anyone who loved the first set to complete the adventure. There are some holes in the plot but I loved the books 'despite' them. Did you see what I did there? 😀
The previous Covenant trilogies seemed like that to me when I was a teenager back in the 80's, but dipping into them now for a quick read and they seem concise and better written compared with what I'm reading now with Revenant.
Whats the most irritating is his turgid narrative where rare obscure words are used when there is absolutely no need for them.To the point of being pathetic. It ruins the flow of the story because I am constantly putting the book down to use the dictionary. The book actually gives the reader an inferiority complex like we're too thick or something! The idea and the theme are both interesting and good, and I am glad to be reading them, but this exercise in vanity (using these unnecessarily complex words) is both hilarious and infuriating.
There are some nice moments, without giving away spoilers, but certainly not the best Covenant book. It seemed to me to be very amateurish, and you could almost tell the different days he wrote on. Some days he must of said "F**k 'em - Im going to write pages and pages of pretentious language today!" and then as quickly as it starts, it stops: maybe he was in a better mood the next day.
I would advise you to read it, just dont expect "The Illearth War" because you wont get it. Less is more sometimes, and I feel this book is way way way too long. It was almost like he was watching TV as he was writing. His heart just didnt seem in it.
Maybe Im wrong. Just my subjective opinion.
Throughly recommended - to read and persevere with as long as you can cope with some upsetting episodes...
Possible little spoilers coming...
1) He introduces an incredibly powerful new race never before heard of??? Felt a bit like Superman suddenly appearing! How did they never get a mention before?!!
2) The first half of the book depends on Linden being too stupid to ask a couple of pertinent questions to confirm/deny her doubts! P-leeeeeeez! She isn't!!
Would have given this 3 stars but I just love the story too much.
