There are stories of Middle-earth from occasions lengthy ahead of The Lord of the earrings, and the tale instructed during this e-book is determined within the nice nation that lay past the gray Havens within the West: lands the place Treebeard as soon as walked, yet that have been drowned within the nice cataclysm that ended the 1st Age of the area. In that distant time Morgoth, the 1st darkish Lord, dwelt within the giant castle of Angband, the Hells of Iron, within the North; and the tragedy of Turin and his sister Nienor spread out in the shadow of the phobia of Angband and the warfare waged through Morgoth opposed to the lands and mystery towns of the Elves. Their short and passionate lives have been ruled via the fundamental hatred that Morgoth bore them because the young ones of Hurin, the fellow who had dared to defy and to scorn him to his face. opposed to them he despatched his so much bold servant, Glaurung, a robust spirit within the type of a massive wingless dragon of fireplace.
