The story begins with Turin, who's father Hurin was captured by the Dark Lord Morgoth and his monstrous army. All of Middle-earth is under Morgoth's rule and for Hurin's defiance, his entire family is cursed by Morgoth to be brought down into darkness and despair.
Turin refuses to be cowed by Morgoth and he gathers around him a band of outlaws and gradually they begin to turn the tide in the war for supremacy of Middle-earth. Morgoth unleashes his greatest weapon: Glaurung, the Mightiest of Dragons, and he proves to be an unstoppable foe. There remains only one man on Middle-earth who can slay him, but to do that he must first confront his destiny.
This story was one of three Great Tales started by J.R.R. Tolkien as he was recovering from the horrors of WWI, and he worked on it for the rest of his life. Painstakingly reconstructed by Christopher Tolkien from his father’s manuscripts, it can finally be enjoyed as the author originally intended.
