Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
Ralph of Upmeads, the youngest son of King Peter, has acted against his parents' wishes to pursue adventure. But Ralph does not want just any quest. He seeks out the Well at the World's End—a magical well famed to bring immortality to those who drink from it.
As Ralph begins his venture across the land he is haunted by dreams of a strange woman—the Servant of the Well. When he meets Ursula, a woman of incredible likeness to the one he dreamed, will he continue his quest or fall in love?
Credited with inspiring both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, The Well as the World's End even features a horse named Shadowfax and a king named Gandolf.
The Well at the World's End is being released as a part of Momentum's Classic Fantasy Fiction series.
