Stephen R Donaldson was the author who introduced me to fantasy with his The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever series many years ago. I then went on to read the wonderful Mordant’s Need series – Mirror of Her Dreams and A Man Rides Through (Vol. II) – and loved them but I never liked The Gap series because I had outgrown the science fiction genre at that time.
Some twenty odd years later, Stephen Donaldson has released the first book in The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Today, I got my copy of the book from the library. I’ve already read the “What’s gone before” and was surprised by how much I remembered, and I look forward to reading the next installment of the series.
Will this book hold my attention like the previous books? Time will tell but I hope so.
