About this deal

Their leader stabs him with a blade of evil enchantment, and he nearly dies as they race for Rivendell.

Unusually for 20th century novels, the prose narrative is supplemented throughout by over 60 pieces of poetry.Gandalf reports that the chief wizard, Saruman, has betrayed them and is now working to become a power in his own right. After surviving an attack, they are pursued by Orcs and a Balrog, an ancient fire demon from a prior Age. Before they leave, Galadriel tests their loyalty, and gives them individual, magical gifts to help them on their quest. The first book sets the stage for the adventure and follows Frodo Baggins as he flees from his home in the Shire to escape the minions of the Dark Lord Sauron. We start off with the mystery of Bilbo Baggins' longevity, and his passing of the baton to his nephew, Frodo.

Frodo later learns about the ring which he had used to make himself invisible, and also to some of its darker powers.Their attempt to cross the Misty Mountains is foiled by heavy snow, so they are forced to take a path under the mountains via Moria, an ancient Dwarf kingdom, now full of Orcs and other evil creatures, such as the Watcher in the Water guarding the west gate. It explains how the narrative follows on from The Hobbit, in which the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins finds the One Ring, which had been in the possession of Gollum. The second of the great tales is the tragic romance of Beren, a mortal man, and Lúthien, an immortal elf maiden.
