    I can't beleive how great this book was. I've read both the first chronicles and second and I remeber reading Illearth War, book two of the first chronicles, and wondering if I will ever again read a book that good. After reading it I knew I wanted more on Thomas Covenant. I finished the first chronicles, began the second and when I picked up White Gold Wielder, I was almost sure that I would not enjoy it as much as I did Illearth War because all previous books had not held up to the thrilling story Donaldson had created. My reason to continue the story was hope. Not only to find a book as good as Illearth War, but also to see the Land healed. I remember clearly the hurt that I felt when I first read Wounded Land, when the world that I had grown to love had been destroyed by the Lord Foul. Now that I have finished the second chronicles I am very excited to say that White Gold Wielder is the best book in the series. The struggles Covenant, Linden, The Search, the Haruchai and the Land face are unparralleled in this book. By far my favorite Thomas Covenant book. Throughout the series the books have been exciting and fun to read, but I always found myself let down with the final chapters, this book however had no such chapter. It is a great read and i recomend it to anyone. After reading these books my only wish is that Donaldson becomes far more popular and that more people get a chance to visit a wonderful and beautiful world I have grown to love, simply called: The Land.

    This is a must read

    It's a shame that most authors from the late '70's to the early '80's don't get the recognition of todays authors. Thomas Covenent is an enigma. This series of books is one of the best I've ever read from ANY genre, and I have walls of books. If you are a fantasy lover like me, do yourself a the entire series. I promise you won't regret it.

    Another Outstanding Book by Donaldson

    I can't say enough about the writings of Stephen R. Donaldson. I have enjoyed every book I have read by him. That said, the translation to digital format for the Nook was terrible. Virtually every page had obvious typographic and formatting errors. Names were misspelled so much I wondered at times what a character's name really was. It seemed obvious that the finalized digital product was not reviewed. The 5 star rating is for the Donaldson and his masterpiece. If I were to rate the digitally formatted translation I would give it 1 star.

    Don't forget this one!

    I haven't started to read this one yet but I purchased it based on the strength of the first four books in the Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever Series. I've already purchased the next two books in the Third Chronicles. This is a series that pulls you in, you find yourself rooting for Covenant as the unlikely hero of the Land. This is definitely a book for any day!

    A Great Read!

    I read the whole series an this is by far the best one yet! I don' think there is another author in the world that could keep me hooked like Donaldson. The harsh punishment Covenant takes to find self redemshin is breath taking! You have to read this book!

    The End of Thomas Covenant

    Much to the dismay of the reader of this series, the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant come to an end. It was a great adventure of epic proportions. The Land and its many lifeforms are exquisitely interwoven. I can't help but feel remorse knowing that I am no longer able to share in the lives of the characters who I considered to be unbelieveably real. Ah, what I would give for a sequel of tales describing what happens to the giants, the Elohim and especially the Haurchai.
