First Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
The first chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever is a fantasy series written by Stephen Donaldson. The series follows the principle character of Thomas Covenant who is a dissilusioned, bitter and very cynical writer afflicted with leprosy.
Shunned by society, Thomas is hit by a car and awakes in a strange alternate world full of strange creatures and magic. Truly an original creation, The First Chronicles of Thomas Covenant is a truly classic trilogy that ranks alongside Tolkien. While very popular, the series never really achieved the acclaim it deserves, any real fan of fantasy will not be dissapointed.
