In The War of the Jewels, Christopher Tolkien takes up his account of the later history of The Silmarillion from the point where it was left in Morgoth’s Ring. The story now returns to Middle-earth, and the ruinous conflict of the High Elves and the Men who were their allies with the power of the Dark Lord. This book contains the full text of the Grey Annals, the primary record of The War of the Jewels, and a major story of Middle-earth: the tale of the disaster that overtook the forest people of Brethil when Húrin the Steadfast came among them after his release from long years of captivity in Angband, the fortress of Morgoth. The War of the Jewels includes the following: • “The Grey Annals” • “The Later Quenta Silmarillion” • “The Wanderings of Húrin and Other Writings not forming part of the Quenta Silmarillion” • “Quendi and Eldar” Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Check out my other items!
