The Two Towers Being the Second Part of the Lord of the Rings (Paperback)
|Author: J. R. R. Tolkien|
|THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME|
The Fellowship was scattered. Some were bracing hopelessly for war against the ancient evil of Sauron. Some were contending with the treachery of the wizard Saruman. Only Frodo and Sam were left to take the accursed Ring of Power to be destroyed in Mordor -- the dark Kingdom where Sauron was supreme. Their guide was Gollum, deceitful and lust-filled, slave to the corruption of the Ring.
THUS CONTINUES THE MAGNIFICENT, BESTSELLING TALE OF ADVENTURE BEGUN IN THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, WHICH REACHES ITS SOUL-STIRRING CLIMAX IN THE RETURN OF THE KING.
From the Publisher:
In this second volume of the LORD OF THE RINGS, Frodo (nephew of Bilbo Baggins, hero of THE HOBBIT) with his companions, struggle, against all odds to keep the ring out of the possession of the evil forces of Middle Earth while trying desperately not to succumb to its otherworldly charms himself.
In this second volume of the LORD OF THE RINGS, Frodo (nephew of Bilbo Baggins, hero of THE HOBBIT) with his companions, struggles, against all odds, to keep the ring out of the possession of the evil forces of Middle Earth while trying desperately not to succumb to its otherworldly charms himself.The action really picks up in this middle volume of the internationally renowned classic epic THE LORD OF THE RINGS. The Fellowship, the band of nine companions whose task it was to bring down the Dark Lord Sauron by destroying his Ring of Power, has been sundered. Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas race to rescue the hobbits Merry and Pippin, kidnapped by orcs, and receive help from an unexpected quarter. Meanwhile, Frodo and his servant Sam continue on toward Mordor, accompanied by their unreliable guide, Gollum, who himself once bore the Ring that Frodo now carries. Will Gollum lead them safely to Mordor, or will he betray them for the chance to take Sauron's Ring back for himself? And will Frodo be able to bear up under the increasing burden of the Ring--or will he succumb to its evil?
