Publisher's Summary

In The Mirror of Her Dreams, the dazzling first volume of Mordant’s Need, New York Times best-selling author Stephen R. Donaldson introduced us to the richly imagined world of Mordant, where mirrors are magical portals into places of beauty and terror. Now, with A Man Rides Through, Donaldson brings the story of Terisa Morgan to an unforgettable conclusion.
Aided by the powerful magic of Vagel, the evil Arch-Imager, the merciless armies are marching against the kingdom of Mordant. In its hour of greatest need, two unlikely champions emerge. One is Geraden, whose inability to master the simplest skills of Imagery has made him a laughingstock. The other is Terisa Morgan, transferred to Mordant from a Manhattan apartment by Geraden’s faulty magic. Together, Geraden and Terisa discover undreamed-of talents within themselves—talents that make them more than a match for any Imager... including Vagel himself.
Unfortunately, those talents also mark them for death. Branded as traitors, they are forced to flee the castle for their lives. Now all but defenseless in a war-torn countryside ravaged by the vilest horrors Imagery can spawn, Geraden and Terisa must put aside past failures and find the courage to embrace their powers—and their love—before Vagel can spring his final trap.
PLEASE NOTE: A Man Rides Through: Volume II of Mordant's Need opens with Book Three, as it continues the story begun in The Mirror of Her Dreams: Volume I of Mordant's Need.

Very good book

I had bought the Mirror in Her Dreams so many years ago I can't remember, and it sat in my book case and I never read it. Once the books came out in audible I listen to them and kicked myself for not reading it way back when. I am a big fan of Stephen R. Donaldson and am very glad that I listened to this story. Very imaginative, like my review in the first book I would have like to see the two main characters have more fight in them. But in the end they kicked butt.

I really wish they would hurry up and put Thomas Covenant first two adventures in Audible, I don't want to listen to the last three books until I can listen to them.

Great Story...great ending to a two part story..

Would you listen to A Man Rides Through again? Why?

Yes...to catch all the little things ....it is so interesting and entertaining. Several points in this second part....I cried. It was so moving...and not always in a good way...sorrow...pain...betrayal...self doubt...

What other book might you compare A Man Rides Through to and why?

Wow...hard one. I would have to say....Terry Goodkind series The sword of Truth...just not so many in a series and sweeter...not so depressing. Good VS Evil....Self discovery and the awkardness of a sexual pull to someone who is not good for you....and pulling away before you do something to hate yourself over!!

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have read the books...I actually own the books...I actually own all books that I buy with Audio...because If I really love a book...I want to also listen to it. The Auditor Scott Brick brings a deeper character to the book. He makes the People in the book come alive and has me review the way I was picturing them because of the nuance in the voices of the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

It was well worth the credit....but you have to get the first one Mirror of Her dreams or this one will not make sense....It make the story line flow with out a great repeat of what happened in the first book.
