Summary
From the Publisher: "Majestic! Readers of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings will find The Silmarillion a cosmology to call their own medieval romances, fierce fairy tales and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury it overwhelms the reader." Those interested in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth should not be without this grand volume that tells the tragic tale of the struggle for control of the Silmarils, a struggle that would determine the history of the world long before the War of the Ring
Summary
The Silmarillion tells of the Elder Days, or the First Age of the World, and is the history of the rebellion of Fëanor, the most gifted of the Elves, and his people against the gods, their exile in Middle-earth, and their war against the first Dark Lord, Morgoth, for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor.
