Lords of Middle-earth™ Volume three

Hobbits, Dwarves, Ents, Orcs & Trolls

How would you like to adventure with Thorin Oakenshield or challenge the battle prowess of an Orc-lord? Could you draw blood from a Cave-troll as Frodo did in Moria or persuade Bilbo Baggins to recount stories of the Elder Days? Have you ever needed to seek help in Fangorn Forest from Treebeard the Ent? Now you can at least try.

Lords of Middle-earth permits you to meet Endor’s most prominent or powerful individuals, the famous or infamous figures who affect the history of the Middle Land. You can call forth all of the major characters found in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

This is the last of three volumes in the Lords of Middle-earth series. Volume One covers Elves, Maïar, Valar, and the Great Enemies,” while the Volume Two tells of Men. Together, these three comprehensive works portray the great figures from each of Endor’s varied races.

Volume Three describes Hobbits, the Little People ignored in the histories; Dwarves, the Children of Aulë; Ents, the Shepherds of the Trees; and Orcs and Trolls, creatures perverted by Morgoth to serve his evil ends. Each race weaves a unique pattern in the rich tapestry of Middle-earth’s epics and ballads. Whether waxing or waning in power, these varied peoples have changed the very essence of the Ages by their deeds.
