Summary
Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts and presented for the first time as a fully continuous and standalone story, the epic tale of The Children of Hurin will reunite fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, dragons and Dwarves, eagles and Orcs, and the rich landscape and characters unique to Tolkien. Turin is born into a Middle-earth crushed by the recent victory of the Dark Lord, Morgoth, and his monstrous army. The greatest warriors among Elves and Men have perished and Turin's father, Hurin, has been captured. For his defiance, Hurin's entire family is cursed by Morgoth to be brought down into darkness and despair. But, like his father, Turin refuses to be cowed by Morgoth and as he grows so does the legend of the deadly hero
