Part 1 of The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

First published by Putnam and Gollancz in 2004.

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover

Since their publication nearly thirty years ago, the first six books in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant have sold more than 10 million copies and have been published around the world. Now, with The Runes of the Earth, Donaldson returns to the Land, and the story of Thomas Covenant.

Ten years on, Dr Linden Avery had thought she would never see the Land, or Covenant, her beloved, again. But Lord Foul has stolen her adopted son, and there is more at risk than the life of the boy she adores: Lord Foul is unmaking the very laws of nature and if he is not stopped, could destroy everything.

And though Linden believes Covenant dead, he keeps sending her messages: 'Find me', and 'You're the only one who can do this', and 'Remember that I'm dead'.

The Land is in turmoil, and Lord Foul has plans for them all . . .

The Runes of the Earth is the first book in 'The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant'

'Donaldson has developed a gift for labyrinthine plotting . . . Runes introduces many intriguing characters with the promise of complex interaction to come'

'Remarkable scope and sophistication'
Los Angeles Times
