Description

The New York Times bestseller is "a fascinating fantasy" (Midwest Book Review).
Thomas Covenant is alive again, restored to his mortal body by Linden Avery's magic-a defiant act of love that has unleashed unimaginable power capable of devastating the Land. The only hope to stop this may lie with the mysterious boy Jeremiah, Linden's adopted son, whose secrets are only beginning to come to light...

Publishers Weekly Review

Aug 02, 2010 – The unreservedly emo penultimate installment in the Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant (after 2007's Fatal Revenant) follows Linden Avery as she struggles to rescue her adopted son, Jeremiah, from the Despiser and forestall the Worm at the World's End, which she awoke by yanking her love, Covenant, free of the Arch of Time. While an introductory plot summary does yeoman service bringing new readers up to speed, it may be hard for them to keep so many characters straight—or care about them—when most of their development took place in previous volumes published decades ago. The focus is on Linden rather than Covenant, whose passive and distracted presence mostly gives others something to react to, but that won't matter to Covenant's large and loyal following, for whom Donaldson delivers all the self-loathing, despair, guilt, pain, and stubborn determination they could ask for.

Against All Things Ending

Fantastic penultimate book in the series as it resolves key story lines and prepares the way for a tightly focused last book. Donaldson is true to the unbeliever conflicts that Covenant and then Linden Avery brought to the storyline, but this time he broadens his style in a way that brings the reader in deeper and closer to the action. I'll re-read this several times in anticipation of the final book. Highly recommended.

Not his best

This book is not his best writing in my opinion. I love the original trilogy, like the second trilogy very much, but thus book seems to be more about the main character beating herself up emotionally than it s about the story of the Land. Seems to be a whole lot of standing around ruminating on pain, regret and outrage and very little about progressing the story.

Things unending

Having loved all Donaldsons books before now I have to say that this is another great read though the introspection of the cast becomes a bit much as the story continues. Aside from the constant recrimination of the same fears and shortcomings the book held my interest and was finished within 48 hours... The plot is impressive and highly insightful. I great look at the human mind from the outside. If you enjoy fantasy that can relate to the reality of your life, read this book...
