best of the trilogy, with some nice descriptions of the terrain in the Land. a somewhat ingenious combination of the Fellowship of the Ring with Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, the series is marred by an inability to resolve the extreme inconsistencies of the main character's central tenets in any believable fashion.

CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT
  rustyoldboat | May 28, 2011 |
The final book in The chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Covenant must come to terms with "the Land" and how he feels before everyone he knows is doomed. His final confrontation with Lord Foul will have farther reaching consequences than he knows. One of the best trilogys I have ever read, it stays with you long after with questions about what makes a hero, and how even the most horrid person can be redeemed. ( )

The final part of the first Thomas Covenant trilogy, in which he completes his mission in the Land.

It was only really in this volume that I finally got the sense of an epic fantasy Stephen Donaldson was presumably after. The story is gripping and kept me turning the pages. I will probably reconsider and think about adding the 2nd trilogy to my wish list or even the TBR pile. ( )

Voor Dr. James R. Donaldson, M.D.,

Twice before Thomas Covenant had been summoned to the strange other-world where magic worked. Twice before he had been forced to join with the Lords of Revelstone in their war against Lord Foul, the ancient enemy of the Land. Now he was back. This time the Lords of Revelstone were desperate. Without hope, Covenant set out to confront the might of the enemy, as Lord Foul grew more powerful with every defeat for the Land....
