Waiting on Wednesday - The Last Dark by Stephen R. Donaldson

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Last Dark by Stephen R. Donaldson
Oct 15, 2013 (Putnam Adult)

Compelled step by step to actions whose consequences they could neither see nor prevent, Thomas Covenant and Linden Avery have fought for what they love in the magical reality known only as "the Land." Now they face their final crisis.  Reunited after their separate struggles, they discover in each other their true power--and yet they cannot imagine how to stop the Worm of the World’s End from unmaking Time.  Nevertheless they must resist the ruin of all things, giving their last strength in the service of the world's continuance. 


Okay, so I have a lot of catching up to do on this series, but how can I resist the temptation of what's being called "The climax of the entire Thomas Covenant Chronicles"? The original trilogy was one of the first fantasy sagas to really wow me and shocked me with its darkness. I'm a huge fan since my high school days, and have been looking forward to witnessing the very end. Time to get reading!
