The long-awaited sequel to The Runes of the Earth and Fatal Revenant returns readers to the Land-and unravels some of the mysteries haunting Covenant and Linden Avery.

Thomas Covenant is alive again, restored to his mortal body by the unimaginable combined force of his own white gold ring, Linden Avery's Staff of Law, and the ancient dagger called High Loric's krill. His resurrection is Linden's defiant act of love, despite warnings from mortals and immortals that unleashing this much power would destroy the world. She brought his spirit back from its prison in the Arch of Time, and revived his slain body, so that Covenant lies whole on the cool grass, and the world seems at peace. But the truth is inescapable: The thunderclap of power has awakened the Worm of the World's End, and all of them, and the Land itself, are forfeit to its devouring. If they have any chance to save the Land, it will come from unlikely sources- including the mysterious boy Jeremiah, Linden's adopted son, whose secrets are only beginning to come to light.

I have LOVED the Thomas Covenant series since the 1980s and have just finished "Against All Things Ending" I can't wait to get my hands on the tenth and final book. I love Donaldson's style and the way he takes me into the Land. I feel like I am there. This was especially true with the Giants of the Search, Pitchwife and Honniscrave WOW!!
It will be sad to have it end but I will probably go back to Lord Foul's Bane" and start all over again! Brilliant.

This last Covenant series was tremendously disappointing. Don't bother reading it if you were a fan of the originals. It will only ruin the whole thing for you.

I have loved the The Land since I read the first book as a teen. This book is interesting as well, but I simply cannot understand the motivations of the characters. I do not understand the "why" of what they are doing. I must assume that I am simply not reading the book carefully enough, but I have had the same problem with several others of the series recently.
