Synopsis :

In 1977, Stephen Donaldson changed the face of epic fantasy. With the publication of THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT THE UNBELIEVER, Donaldson took the world of fantasy publishing by storm, and created a true phenomenon: an epic fantasy instant bestseller that has gone on to sell millions.

The 'hero', Thomas Covenant, is mysteriously struck down with a disease believed eradicated; he is abandoned by his wife and young son and becomes a pariah. Alone and despairing, Covenant falls - and is drawn into a mysterious new world, where gentle people work magic and the earth itself brings healing. He is welcomed as the reincarnation of a legendary saviour, but Covenant refuses to believe; he's convinced he's having delusions. At the end of the sixth book, as Covenant battles to save the world, he is killed - in both worlds - as Dr Linden Avery, his horrified companion, looks on.

Now comes the book every fantasy reader has been waiting for. It's ten years later, and Linden Avery thought she would never see the Land, or Covenant, her beloved, again. But Lord Foul has stolen her adopted son, and is unmaking the very laws of nature.

And though she believes Covenant dead, he keeps sending Linden messages: 'Find me', and 'Don't trust me'. The Land is in turmoil, and Lord Foul has plans for them all . . .

Critique: He creates a constant tension that grips and won't let go (Barbara Davies STARBURST)

Donaldson has developed a gift for labyrinthine plotting... Runes introduces many intruiging characters with the promise of complex interaction to come. (David Langford SFX)

Not your typical fantasy, this enjoyable read comes alive with Donaldson's vivid descriptions ( GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

Morally complex and rich in detail, this is a novel which reminds you that fantasy needn't equate to lowest common denominator simplicity. One of fantasy's heavyweights reminds us that he still has much to offer the genre. (Jonathan Wright DREAMWATCH)
