- "Twice before, Thomas Covenant had been summoned to the strange other-world where magic worked. Twice he had been forced to join with the Lords of Revelstone in their war against Lord Foul, the ancient enemy of the Land.
Now he was back—-to a Land ravaged by the armies of Lord Foul and oppressed by an unnatural winter. The Lords were besieged and helpless, trapped inside their fortress home. No place was safe and Lord Foul's victory seemed certain. Only Covenant could avert it... if he could finally master the power of the wild magic.
Desperately and without hope, he set out to confront Lord Foul one final time. With him went a Giant, a former Bloodguard and the madwoman he had wronged. And in Lord Foul's Crèche, Lord Foul grew in power with each new defeat for the Land."
