The final part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring an exclusive cover image from the film

Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien’s great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal.

To celebrate the release of the major motion picture trilogy, we will be reissuing the A-format paperbacks with exclusive images from the films on the covers, the third of which being The Return of the King, in which the forces of Gondor and Rohan must make a last desperate stand against the monstrous armies of the Dark Lord, Sauron. And while good and evil engage in mighty battle, the fate of Middle-earth rests in the hands of two weary hobbits.
