Been a long, long time since I read Mordant's Need. Like, before I moved to Georgia (and I've been here 11+ years now). POV character is easier to sympathize with. Like Covenant, deals with someone from *this* world traveling elsewhere. More of a traditional pseudo-medieval sort of fantasy setting than Thomas Covenant. But my vague recollection is that I enjoyed it. Magic system was way different from Covenant (honestly more defined, with more rules, but not in a Sanderson-y way).
