New Book in Lord of the Rings Universe Coming This Year
A new The Lord the Rings book The Fall of Gondolin, edited by J.R.R. Tolkien’s son Christopher Tolkien, will be released later this year.
Per The Guardian, The Fall of Gondolin is said to be “the first real story” of Middle-earth and it’s coming out in August. The story was written by Tolkien while he was in the hospital, and follows the evil Morgoth battling the sea-god Ulmo.
Morgoth is trying to discover and destroy the hidden city of Gondolin, while Ulmo is supporting the elves – the Noldor – who reside in it. One of the elves, Tuor, is the main protagonist who sets out to find Gondolin and meets the sea-god Ulmo along the way.
