One of the best in the entire Thomas Covenant series! While there was a lot of changes in pacing, it was all vital to the overall story. Obviously, since this is book 3 of the final series and book 9 overall, it wouldn't make much sense to someone without reading the previous volumes first. If you want a challenging read, try tackling the series! It will be well worth your time!
Wow! Where to start with this one? This series was one of my favorites in the late 70s and early 80s when they were first released. Even back then, Stephen R. Donaldson was hard to read, his writing so incredibly detailed and elaborate. Nothing has changed with this book. A fantastic read, and a great return to "The Land", but I'm exhausted after reading this one. And I must dive immediately into the next one because of a FANTASTIC cliff-hanger ending that I didn't see coming!
I highly recommend this book, but you must read the first six books in the series or it won't make a lick of sense.
This series keeps getting better and better, and book 6 is clearly the best so far. It doesn't disappoint, except for the cliffhanger ending, which I've come to expect. This begs the question, when does the next book come out? Please, not too long!
