And the revelations which are in this last book concerning the Unbeliever are a trip indeed. So many colorful characters, with one of my favorites being Saltheart Foamfollower, the big-hearted giant. He steers Covenant to his destination in this last book, and his sense of humor becomes the catalyst which Covenant needs to propel him on to his destination. And what is it that they say - "laughter is the best medicine?" Read on the end and you'll discover this truth. This last book was so disappointing because it was the last. I remember writing a letter to Stephen Donaldson a year after this series ended, asking him if he was going to write a Third Installment of three books, and he graciously declined, stating that maybe in the near future something like this would be possible. But, in any event, this six book series is well worth the investment for any lover of fantasy, but please put down your comparisons to the Lord of the Rings - there's no comparison. This one stands on its own, and its Highly Recommended!!!
