Book: Children of Hurin

Came out yesterday and there was a nice piece on the radio about the preparing of this book, Children of Hurin Originally written by the, "Lord of the Rings" author J.R.R. Tolkien.

"There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings, and the story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.


In that remote time Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in the vast fortress of Angband, the Hells of Iron, in the North; and the tragedy of Turin and his sister Nienor unfolded within the shadow of the fear of Angband and the war waged by Morgoth against the lands and secret cities of the Elves..." - Official Tolkien Website
