« The Children of Húrin » (cont'd)

The Children of Húrin takes the reader back to a time long before The Lord of the Rings, in an area of Middle-earth that was to be drowned thousands of years before the story of the Ring, and when the great enemy was still the fallen Vala, Morgoth, and Sauron only his lieutenant. This heroic romance is the tale of the Man, Húrin, who dared to defy Morgoth's force of evil, and his family's tragic destiny, as it follows his son Túrin Turambar's travails through the lost world of Beleriand.

The book is illustrated with colour plates by the renowned artist Alan Lee, and contains a map drawn by Christopher Tolkien of Beleriand, as well as editorial notes on the text in Appendices.
