The Children Of Húrin (Paperback)
J.R.R. Tolkien's The Children of Húrin is one of the three 'Great Tales' of the Elder Days. This paperback edition includes eight color paintings by renowned Tolkien illustrator Alan Lee and a black-and-white map.
The Children of Húrin is the first complete book by Tolkien since the 1977 publication of The Silmarillion. Six thousand years before the One Ring is destroyed, Middle-earth lies under the shadow of the Dark Lord Morgoth. The greatest warriors among elves and men have perished, and all is in darkness and despair. But a deadly new leader rises, Túrin, son of Húrin, and with his grim band of outlaws begins to turn the tide in the war for Middle-earth—awaiting the day he confronts his destiny and the deadly curse laid upon him.
