Volume Two of the bestselling Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever - the return of a classic modern fantasy epic.
Thomas Covenant and Linden Avery flee from the Land, and embark with the Giants on a desperate search for the One Tree, the powerful life-force whose branches alone can re-make the Staff of Law.
They leave the Sunbane-ravaged shores they know for a new world where awesome creatures attack them at sea and strangely powerful new races both welcome and threaten them on Land - while Lord Foul sends his Ravers to harry Covenant and all who help him.
Before them lies the prize that can vanquish the Sunbane - or wreak the devastation that Lord Foul seeks . . .
