The third volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness 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 takes part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escape into Fangorn Forest and there encounter 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.

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

Includes the complete appendices and index for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Great book.
  • Good Defeats Evil

    By Dwardeng
    In this, the final installment of the greatest fantasy trilogy of all time, all the forces of light and dark collide in a mighty crescendo and in a variety of ways. Absolutely outstanding at so many levels.

    Incredible ending to the best 'trilogy' ever. I love how this ending ties up all the loose ends. What other book tells you about the rest of all the main characters lives apart from the main story?
