Summary (From the publisher):

THOMAS COVENANT, UR-LORD

He called himself Covenant the Unbeliever, because he dared not believe in this strange alternate world on which he suddenly found himself. The magic of the Land could not be real. Loremasters could not draw fire from wood that never burned, nor force stone to flow freely under their fingers. Yet they did. Hurtloam could not regenerate ruined nerves. Yet, miraculously, it did.

The Land tempted him. He had been sick; now he seemed better than ever before. Through no fault of his own, he had been outcast, unclean, a pariah. Now he was regarded as a reincarnation of the Land's greatest hero - Berek Hlafhand - armed with the mstic power of White Gold. That power alone could protect the Lords of the Land from the ancient evil of the Despiser, Lord Foul. Only...Covenant had no idea of how the power could be used!

Thus begins one of the strangest epic fantasies ever written...

Blurbs:
  • "An intricately crafted fantasy that presents a most unusual and memorable anti-hero in Thomas Covenant. But it is the spellbinding tapestry of the Land through which he journeys that will linger on in the reader's imagination long after the last page is turned. It will be turned all too quickly." Terry Brooks, author of The Sword of Shannara
  • "In a year that has produced more good fantasy fiction than any previous decade, the appearance of the three massive volumes of the Thomas Covenant saga comes, remarkably, as a sort of climax. It will certainly find a place on the small list of true classics in its specialized field." Washington Post Book World
  • "A feast for epic fantasy addicts." Publishers Weekly
  • "I don't think books like this come along more than a few times in a lifetime. I thought I was too old to be struck with wonder again. No, it doesn't happen often. With all my heart I'm delighted, excited." Marion Zimmer Bradley
