About this title:

Synopsis: The second volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure The Lord of the Rings

"Here are beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron." -- C. S. Lewis

"Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century. The book presents us with the richest profusion of new lands and new creatures, from the beauty of Lothlorien to the horror of Mordor, adventures to hold us spell-bound, and words of beauty and evocation to bring all vividly before us." --Sunday Telegraph

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkeness bind them

Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in a battle in the Mines of Moria. And Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape the rest of the company were attacked by Orcs.
Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin -- alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

From the Back Cover: 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.
