The Runes of the Earth
by Stephen R. Donaldson




Overview -
New York Times bestselling author Stephen R. Donaldson presents the first novel of the four-volume finale to the series that's become a modern fantasy classic: The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

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 new-found 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 into the Land, where a dark malevolence is about to unmake the laws of nature--and of life and death itself. It is here that she comes upon Esmer, son of the Dancers of the Sea, a creature of strange powers who draws Linden backwards through time to witness Thomas Covenant's return to life, and to reinvent the mysterious, dangerous, and violent history of the Land.
