Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable, is central to the enmity of two of the greatest powers in the world.

Morgoth of the uttermost evil seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city of his Elven enemies, while the gods in Valinor refuse to support Ulmo Lord of Waters' designs to protect it.

Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of TĂșrin, and guided unseen by Ulmo he sets out on the fearful journey to Gondolin to warn them of their coming doom. Then Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs.

I listened to the book at the same time as I followed the text in the book. I want to know how things are prenounced! The story itself isn’t
 amazing. But it’s good and a bit exiting. But it is in the way that Tolkien writes. He MADE the language beautiful. He can describe a horrifying bolrog in the same detailed and wonderful way as he does with the fair elves. And don’t even get me started on the narrators. Omg. So. Amazing.
