Linden Avery is once more in the Land, that place of impossible health, magic and life. She is searching for her son Jeremiah, whom she learns is in the thrall of a cruel vampiric thing allied with Thomas Covenant's psychotic son Roger. Desperate for help, she has done the most devastating thing possible: using the Staff of Law and white gold's wild magic, she has ripped Thomas Covenant out of the Arch of Time and restored him to life. And thus begins the end of the world...

From official release/information:

Product Description: The long-awaited sequel to The Runes of the Earth and Fatal Revenant returns readers to the Land--and unravels some of the mysteries haunting Covenant and Linden Avery.

Thomas Covenant is alive again, restored to his mortal body by the unimaginable combined force of his own white gold ring, Linden Avery's Staff of Law, and the ancient dagger called High Loric's krill. His resurrection is Linden's defiant act of love, despite warnings from mortals and immortals that unleashing this much power would destroy the world. She brought his spirit back from its prison in the Arch of Time, and revived his slain body, so that Covenant lies whole on the cool grass, and the world seems at peace. But the truth is inescapable: The thunderclap of power has awakened the Worm of the World's End, and all of them, and the Land itself, are forfeit to its devouring. If they have any chance to save the Land, it will come from unlikely sources- including the mysterious boy Jeremiah, Linden's adopted son, whose secrets are only beginning to come to light.
