Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure The Lord of the Rings

"An extraordinary work — pure excitement." — New York Times Book Review

"A triumphant close...a grand piece of work, grand in both conception and execution. An astonishing imaginative tour de force." — Daily Telegraph

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkeness bind them

As the Shadow of Mordor grows across the land, the Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, has joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents.

Gandalf has miraculously returned and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Sam has left his master for dead after a battle with the giant spider, Shelob; but Frodo is still alive — now in the foul hands of the Orcs. And all the while the armies of the Dark Lord are massing as the One Ring draws ever nearer to the Cracks of Doom.
