Excellent Series! This is the second Chronicles. I would highly recommend the first set of 3 books "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant" and to read them in order for the full impact. I have read any book I could find from Stepeh R. Donaldson and have never been disappointed.
Thomas Covenant was shocked by Linden Avery's demand, but he realized that, despite their awful failure on The Isle of The One Tree, there was no alternative but to return and fight. After a long and arduous journey overland, the company reaches Revelstone. Following a fiery showdown with Gibbon Raver, Covenant discovers that he can come to terms with and control his awsome power. As he readies himself for the final showdown with Lord Foul, the Despiser, Thomas Covenant knows the answer at last.
Book 3 of the 2nd trilogy about a man magically summoned to an alternate world to help them fight their most ancient evil foe because he is thought to be the reincarnation of it's greatest hero. A thoroughly adult fantasy tale full of sorcery, peril & heroism.
