[A] landmark fantasy saga. Entertainment Weekly
A trilogy of remarkable scope and sophistication. Los Angeles Times
The most original fantasy since The Lord of the Rings. Time Out
[Donaldson] is a writer who has explored the themes of grimdark before grimdark existed, and well knows how to deliver epic qualities in his fantasy prose...Seventh Decimate is a strong novel and promises much for what is to come in Donaldson’s new series, The Great God’s War. SF Book   Praise for The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant  
Donaldson delivers a surprising start to what promises to be a very unconventional fantasy series…And thus is another fantasy classic forged. Recommended. SF Revu
A new Stephen Donaldson book is always a cause for celebration. Seventh Decimate will whet your appetite for a sequel. New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks
Fantastic. Booklist  
It promises to be as rich in detail as its predecessors—and, Mr. Donaldson’s trademark, as emotionally deep and as psychologically unpredictable. The Wall Street Journal
