Against All Things Ending(The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, #3)
Attempts must be made, even when there can be no hope. And betimes some wonder is wrought to redeem us...
Thomas Covenant is alive again, restored to his mortal body by the unimaginable combined power of his own white gold ring, Linden Avery’s Staff of Law, and the ancient dagger called High Lord Loric’s krill. His resurrection is Linden’s defiant act of love; despite warnings from mortals and immortals that unleashing this much power would destroy the world. She brought his spirit back from its prison in the Arch of Time, and restored his slain body, so precious to her, his wild white hair like a flame, his face now etched with lines of pain. Thomas Covenant is returned to her.
But the truth is inescapable: the thunderclap of power from Linden’s action has awakened the Worm of the World’s End, and all of them, and the Land itself, are forfeit to its devouring. If they have any chance to save the Land, it will come from unlikely sources - including the mysterious boy Jeremiah, Linden’s adopted son, whose secrets are only beginning to come to light. And it will come from sacrifices, some freely offered by friends who have traveled far and trusted much, and some taken by force that can be recognized only later as compassion.
Dimly, but holding on to whatever hope leaves behind when hope itself has failed, Linden clings to one prophecy: You would not be driven by mistaken love to bring about the end of all things.
