    Since their publication more than two decades ago, the initial six books in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant series have sold more than six million copies and have been published in 10 countries around the world. Now, starting with The Runes of the Earth, Stephen R. Donaldson returns with a quartet of new Covenant novels that are certain to satisfy his millions of fans, and attract countless new followers.

    "Donaldson Triumphs"
    Overall

    Donaldson's writing remains as sharp as ever. His prose is more thightly contained than it was in the original Covenant Triology and some of the operatic descriptiveness has been trimmed, but he still manages to impress with his command of the English language and his ability to use that mastery to play our emotions like a violin. After so many years, Donaldson makes a triumphant return to the Land, where his career began and takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through the beginning of the end of Thomas Covenant's journey.

    This, as with all of Donaldson's works, is not a story for readers who do not enjoy an emotional, evocative journey through some of the darker aspects of humanity or readers who don't enjoy thinking, sometimes deeply, while they read. Donaldson is not a light, beach read and so is sometimes very underappreciated by the masses. But if you enjoy thought-provoking drama in a fantasy setting with rich characters, a feeling of profound depth in the world, and a sense of adventure and growth through trial and adversity, don't miss this book.
