Chronicles by Stephen Donaldson


Thomas Covenant was an outcast man, living on his own farm in rural America. The local townspeople didn't want him there because he was an leper and they were afraid of him.

One day he is summoned to another world by a evil power, because he holds the white gold, which has the power to destroy the land.

Through a series of dangerous travels, Thomas must fight strange creatures created by the Despiser, who is intent on ruling the land.

Along the way Thomas meets various other creatures who aid him on his final destination, for they all know he has the power to either heal the land or destroy it together.

Though he fails several times to be the hope of the people, they do not lose faith in him and willingly support him in his final quest.

This storyline is so huge, covering over 3000 pages that the timeline is covered by six volumes.

These six books are known as First Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

If you enjoy fantasy, similar to Tolkein or Lord of the Rings books then you will enjoy this one.

I couldn't put these books down and eagerly followed his adventures through strange lands with strange beings.

The author, Stephen Donaldson, was voted the best new writer by the British Fantasy Society and was awarded by the British Science Fiction Convention for this, his publishing debut.

This series is published by Fontana Books. Available through Angus and Robertson or Harper Collins at $6.95 each.

I've only read the first book because I found it hard to stay interested in a character so unlikeable. I prefer to have a character I can empathise with who I want to succeed and Thomas is a rapist which I found it hard to get past. Maybe he is redeemed later in the series.
