Overview

In The Mirror of Her Dreams, the dazzling first volume of Mordant’s Need, New York Times bestselling author Stephen R. Donaldson introduced us to the richly imagined world of Mordant, where mirrors are magical portals into places of beauty and terror. Now, with A Man Rides Through, Donaldson brings the story of Terisa Morgan to an unforgettable conclusion. . . .

Aided by the powerful magic of Vagel, the evil Arch-Imager, the merciless armies are marching against the kingdom of Mordant. In its hour of greatest need, two unlikely champions emerge. One is Geraden, whose inability to master the simplest skills of Imagery has made him a laughingstock. The other is Terisa Morgan, transferred to Mordant from a Manhattan apartment by Geraden’s faulty magic. Together, Geraden and Terisa discover undreamed-of talents within themselves—talents that make them more than a match for any Imager . . . including Vagel himself.

Unfortunately, those talents also mark them for death. Branded as traitors, they are forced to flee the castle for their lives. Now, all but defenseless in a war-torn countryside ravaged by the vilest horrors Imagery can spawn, Geraden and Terisa must put aside past failures and find the courage to embrace their powers—and their love—before Vagel can spring his final trap.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While the Alend army lays siege to Orison Castle, Terisa and Geraden strive to penetrate the secret maneuverings of a mad king and a senile wizard so that the evil threatening the land of Mordant can be named and defeated. The author of the popular Thomas Covenant books combines an intricate plot with likeable heroes in a richly detailed yet evenly paced conclusion to the story begun in Mirror of Her Dreams. JC

Mordant's Need is a beautifully written tale. It's a story of personal growth filled with magic, adventure, and romance. I have read both books several times over the years yet my enthusiasum has not diminished. I strongy recommend this to anyone who is into Fantasy. It's a real page turner.

I have read both of the books in 'Mordant's Need' and must say I enjoyed both immensely. It has a mix any fantasy, sci-fi, or romance reader would enjoy. This is one of my favorite books and would recommend it to anyone.

A Man Rides Through and Mirror of her Dreams are my all time favorites written by Donaldson. I checked monthly for almost 2 years to finally get these in e-book form.

Mordant's Need consists of A Man Rides Through and The Mirror of Her Dreams. Terisa, a rich, neglected young woman, finds herself translated through a mirror to the kingdom of Mordant. Terisa and Geraden, an apprentice imager, are involved with discovering why horrors are being unleashed in the kingdom and why the king doesn't act to stop the horrors. A lot of adventure and a little romance make for a wonderful epic fantasy. Much better in my opinion than the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

I read this book years ago and loved it! I was recently looking for a new book to read and came across A Man Rides Through and it's prequel A Mirror of Her Dreams in nook format and had to get them. Like I said, I've read them before so I remembered the plot but I still enjoyed reading them again. Even more than I did before! It's a creative story where mirrors are magic, and dangerous. I loved the characters and couldn't read fast enough to see what would happen to them. I completely recommend these books to anyone with a love of fantasies!!
