Stephen Donaldson, the bestselling author of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, continues his Great God's War fantasy epic as two kingdoms - united by force - prepare to be challenged by a merciless enemy...

It has been twenty years since Prince Bifalt of Belleger discovered the Last Repository and the sorcerous knowledge hidden there. At the behest of the repository's magisters, and in return for the restoration of sorcery to both kingdoms, the realms of Belleger and Amika ceased generations of war. Their alliance was sealed with the marriage of Bifalt to Estie, the crown princess of Amika. But the peace - and their marriage - has been uneasy.

Now the terrible war that King Bifalt and Queen Estie feared is coming. An ancient enemy has discovered the location of the Last Repository, and a mighty horde of dark forces is massing to attack the library and take the magical knowledge it guards. That horde will slaughter every man, woman, and child in its path, destroying both Belleger and Amika along the way.

With their alliance undermined by lingering hostility and conspiracies threatening, it will take all of the monarchs' strength and will to inspire their people into defiance...

About the Author

Stephen Donaldson was born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio. From the age of three until he was sixteen he lived in India, where his father worked as an orthopaedic surgeon. He lives in New Mexico.

His first fantasy trilogy, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever, was published in 1977 and rapidly became a classic, establishing Stephen Donaldson as one of the most important figures in modern fantasy. It was named Best Novel of the Year by the British Fantasy Society, and earned the author the John W. Campbell Award as best new writer. In 1980, his success continued with the publication of the first volume in his equally popular second trilogy, The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. His other bestselling work includes his first collection of short stories, Daughter of Regals, which has recently been reissued, and the two books in the bestselling Mordant's Need series, The Mirror of Her Dreams and A Man Rides Through.

His most recent work is the acclaimed Gap series, an epic five-volume science-fiction adventure that begins in The Real Story and continues in Forbidden Knowledge, A Dark and Hungry God Arises, Chaos and Order and, most recently, This Day All Gods Die, the latest in a long line of 'Sunday Times' top-ten bestsellers.

It was after hearing one of his father's speeches on leprosy that he conceived the character of Thomas Covenant. He has recently completed the bestselling 'Gap' series, a five-volume SF epic that has been hailed as 'the best work of his career'.
