Locus Award nominee 1984.

White Gold Wielder is the final volume in The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, and the sixth in the phenomenally successful fantasy series. It continues the story of Thomas Covenant and Linden Avery's fight to rid the Land of Lord Foul's pestilence – the Sunbane.

From bitter defeat on the Isle of the One Tree, Thomas Covenant, Linden Avery and the Giants of The Search take ship again. But the Giantship, Starfare's Gem, is crippled, and, captured by the unassailable power of the Dolewind, she sets course for the perils of the dangerous shifting sea of Giantish legend. Across the frozen oceans, the Search is led back to the Land, now perilously close to destruction from the ravages of the Sunbane. And in the fastness of Revelstone, the Clave feed the growing power of the Banefire with the blood of the Land's people.

Once, Covenant could have faced and defeated the Clave's power. Now, torn by guilt and self-doubt, he must match his magic to that which the Raver has at his command, and must find a way to purge the venom Lord Foul has set to destroy him.

As they are drawn inexorably towards the caverns deep below Mount Thunder, Covenant and Linden Avery prepare to meet their bitterest foe. Even the white gold they carry may not serve against Lord Foul's powers. For once the wild magic is unleashed, the Arch of Time will crack – and Lord Foul's conquest of the Land will be assured.
