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 . . .
Stephen Donaldson lived in India for 13 years with his father, a medical missionary, who worked extensively with lepers; it was here that he conceived the character of Thomas Covenant. He was awarded the John W. Campbell Award as Best Writer of the Year for The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever, which, with the sequel trilogy, became instant bestsellers. He is also the author of the fantasy duology 'Mordant's Need', the SF epic quintet 'The Gap', and a number of mysteries written under the pseudonym Reed Stephens. He won the World Fantasy Award in 2000. The four books of The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant have been acclaimed worldwide.
