The Children of Hurin is a breathtaking novel that has been painstakingly compiled by the authors and provides the readers with a beautiful tale of epic fantasy. Summary Of The Book Like most books written by Tolkien, The Children Of Hurin is a novel that revolves around men, elves, dark forces, and dwarfs. Based on a series of thrilling events that take place in Middle-earth, this book provides the readers with much-needed information on the key characters in its first few pages. The Silmarillion is the prequel of this book. The story in The Silmarillion focusses on the escape of Morgoth from Valinor, to the north-west region of Middle-earth. Morgoth has his fortress in a place called Angband, and he now makes every effort to establish his reign over the entire Middle-earth. This results in a war with the elves, who reside in the southern part of Middle-earth. However, the elves manage to avert any war, and retain control over most of their regions. They then seek revenge on Morgoth, who tried to destroy them. Turin and Nienor are two such characters in this story who make no bones about the fact that they are not going to submit to the demands of the evil Morgoth. This results in Morgoth casting an exceptionally evil curse on the children that would be born of Hurin. Turin changes his name six times in this story and even after that he is unable to flee from the cruel fate that is in store for him in the story. Now, with the Sindar of Beleriand, they wage war on Angband. What follows is a series of action-packed encounters between the rival sides.  About The Authors J. R. R. Tolkien was a renowned author, professor, poet, and philologist. His other books include The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King. Tolkien was born on the 3rd of January, 1892, in Bloemfontein, Orange Free State. He completed his degree in English Language, and Literature from Exeter College, Oxford, in 1915, graduating with first-class honors. In the year 2008, The Times ranked Tolkien in the list of “The 50 Greatest British Writers Since 1945”, at the sixth position. He passed away on the 2nd of September 1973, in Bournemouth, England. Christopher Tolkien is the youngest son of the late, J. R. R. Tolkien, and works as an editor for most of his father’s literary works. Some of the books by Tolkien include Unfinished Tales and The Silmarillion. Tolkien was born on the 21st of November, 1924, in Leeds, England. He earned a BA degree from Oxford University, studying English, and completed his B.Litt. degree a few years later. He currently resides in France, along with his spouse. Alan Lee is a well-known illustrator, and movie conceptual designer from Middlesex, England. Lee was born on the 20th of August, 1947, in Middlesex, England. He finished his studies from Ealing School of Art. He currently resides in England, along with his spouse.

Painstakingly restored from Tolkien’s manuscripts, this is the first complete, standalone Middle-earth book by J.R.R. Tolkien since The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

It is a legendary time long before The Lord of the Rings, and Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwells in the vast fortress of Angband in the North; and within the shadow of the fear of Angband, and the war waged by Morgoth against the Elves, the fates of Túrin and his sister Niënor will be tragically entwined.

Their brief and passionate lives are dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bears them as the children of Húrin, the man who dared to defy him to his face. Against them Morgoth sends his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire, in an attempt to fulfil the curse of Morgoth, and destroy the children of Húrin.

Begun by J.R.R. Tolkien at the end of the First World War, The Children of Húrin became the dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form. In this book Christopher Tolkien has constructed, after long study of the manuscripts, a coherent narrative without any editorial invention.
