The Children of H rin is the first complete book by J.R.R.Tolkien since the 1977 publication of The Silmarillion. This paperback edition includes eight color paintings by renowned Tolkien artist Alan Lee, plus a black-and-white map.
Six thousand years before the One Ring is destroyed, Middle-earth lies under the shadow of the Dark Lord Morgoth. The greatest warriors among elves and men have perished, and all is in darkness and despair. But a deadly new leader rises, T rin, son of H rin, and with his grim band of outlaws begins to turn the tide in the war for Middle-earth--awaiting the day he confronts his destiny and the deadly curse laid upon him.
