Against All Things Ending

The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant

Against All Things Ending is a decent fantasy novel. Many aspects reminded me of Tolkien as Donaldson creates a vivid world that is beautiful and full of magic. The detail he uses to describe the land and the varying races that live there is exquisite. The love story shows that love conquers all, even death. The pacing was slow going until near the end. There was a little more introspection than I usually like and not as much action. Though I felt a connection to the world itself, the characters were difficult to empathize with. The ending was climatic but left off with many unanswered questions.

Going against everyone’s advice, Linda Avery uses all the powers available to raise her love, Thomas Covenant from the dead. She frees him from his imprisonment in the Arch of time and he is restored to her. Together they travel far and wide to rescue her adopted son Jeremiah from the clutches of evil. They will also have to work together with some friends to stop the Worm of the World’s End who will lay destruction across the land. It all seems hopeless and many times they feel that they may not be able to save the day. But they will never give up until all is right again.
