The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant - The Wounded Land (The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Book 1)
‘Comparable to Tolkien at his best’ WASHINGTON POST
Returning millions of readers to the Land and continuing the epic story of the anti-hero fated to be its saviour, THE SECOND CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT secured Stephen Donaldson’s reputation as a master of modern fantasy.
For ten years, Thomas Covenant has set the conflicts of the Land behind him. But thousands of years have passed in the Land and the creeping evil of Lord Foul has grown so strong that its influence is felt even in our own world.
Accompanied by doctor Linden Avery, Covenant returns. Together, they find themselves in a deadly struggle to control not only the spread of Foul’s corruption but also the devastating power of Covenant’s own magic.
