N.M. fantasy author who is best known for his Thomas Covenant books, Stephen R. Donaldson signs his newest work.
NM FANTASY AUTHOR DEBUTS NEW SERIES 3 PM NOVEMBER 19 AT PAGE ONE
Award-winning Albuquerque author Stephen R. Donaldson, best known for his Thomas Covenant books, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, November 19, to talk about and sign the first novel in his new fantasy series, "Seventh Decimate: The Great God's War Book 1."
Donaldson's new effort is described as such: "The acclaimed author of the Thomas Covenant Chronicles launches a powerful new trilogy about a prince’s desperate quest for a sorcerous library to save his people. Fire. Wind. Pestilence. Earthquake. Drought. Lightning. These are the six Decimates, wielded by sorcerers for both good and evil. But a seventh Decimate exists — the most devastating one of all...
"For centuries, the realms of Belleger and Amika have been at war, with sorcerers from both sides harnessing the Decimates to rain blood and pain upon their enemy. But somehow, in some way, the Amikans have discovered and invoked a seventh Decimate, one that strips all lesser sorcery of its power. And now the Bellegerins stand defenseless. Prince Bifalt, eldest son of the Bellegerin King, would like to see the world wiped free of sorcerers. But it is he who is charged with finding the repository of all of their knowledge, to locate the book of the seventh Decimate—and reverse the fate of his land. All hope rests with Prince Bifalt. But the legendary library, which may or may not exist, lies beyond an unforgiving desert and treacherous mountains—and beyond the borders of his own experience. Wracked by hunger and fatigue, sacrificing loyal men along the way, Prince Bifalt will discover that there is a game being played by those far more powerful than he could ever imagine. And that he is nothing but a pawn..."
Donaldson is the author of the original six volumes of the "Chronicles of Thomas Covenant," a landmark in modern fantasy. Every volume, beginning with "Lord Foul’s Bane" in 1977, has been an international bestseller. Donaldson returned to the series with the "Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant," comprising of "The Runes of the Earth," "Fatal Revenant," "Against All Things Ending," and "The Last Dark." He also authored a five-book science-fiction series known as "The Gap Sequence." Donaldson lives in the Albuquerque area with his wife.
