Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in a battle in the Mines of Moria. And Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape, the rest of the company was attacked by Orcs. Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin -- alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go. The second volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Part 2 of Lord of the Rings trilogy
In this book, Mr Tolkien continues the great romance which he began with The Fellowship of The Ring. Prophecy is a dangerous business, but I should not be surprised if we turned out to have a new classic on our hands...If you know a great book when you see one, you will want all of these..(Julian Forrest, Boston Herald Traveler)
If you want to find out what really happened in the book that didn't happen in the movie... read this. J.R.R. Tolkien is an exceptional writer and these stories... all three of them... AND the Hobbit are spellbinding and captivating.
