More than twenty years ago, Stephen R. Donaldson set a literary landmark with the first fantasy bestseller. His New York Times bestselling series, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, transformed modern fantasy. Now, at long last, Donaldson introduces the first novel of the much-awaited, four-volume finale to the series that's sold more than ten million copies.

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 newfound 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 back to the Land, where a dark malevolence is about to unmake the laws of nature—and of life and death itself.

Stephen R. Donaldson is the bestselling author of the series The Gap Cycle, Mordant's Need, and the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, including Lord Foul's Bane and The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant; and other works, such as Daughter of Regals and Other Tales and a mystery series under the pseudonym Reed Stephens. He is the recipient of the first prize of the British Science Fiction Society and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Scott Brick, an acclaimed voice artist, screenwriter, and actor, has performed on film, television, and radio. His stage appearances throughout the US include CyranoHamlet, and MacBeth. In the audio industry, Scott has won over 20 Earphones Awards, as well as the 2003 Audie Award in the Best Science Fiction category for Dune: The Butlerian Jihad. After recording nearly 250 books in five years, AudioFile Magazine named Scott “one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy” and proclaimed him one of their Golden Voices. Brick’s range is unparalleled as he reads thrillers to narrative nonfiction, from biographies to science fiction with aplomb.

Reviews

Praise for The Runes of the Earth
 
“A reawakening of a classic fantasy saga.”—Library Journal

“Startlingly original antiheroic fantasy resonating with echoes of both Tolkien and Philip K. Dick.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“An epic with page-turning intrigue.”—Detroit Free Press
 
“Impressive...filled with splendid inventions.”—Booklist
 
“The most important and original work of epic fantasy after Tolkien...Rich in paradox, metaphor, and symbolism, Donaldson continues his explorations into the psyches of his characters, as well as themes of estrangement, despair, guilt and responsibility. Intricately plotted...Donaldson’s writing remains one of the most original and intellectually challenging works to have graced contemporary epic fantasy.”—SF Site Expand reviews
