Before the infamous One Ring was forged in the fires of Mount Doom, one man, Húrin, chose to defy Morgoth, the first and greatest of the dark lords to plague Middle-earth. Thus, Húrin, along with his children, Túrin and Niënor, earned the enmity of a merciless foe that would shape the destiny of all the ages to come.

J. R. R. Tolkien, the master storyteller of fantastic tales came up with this magical adventure of Elves and Men united against a powerful evil. Christopher Tolkien, his son and literary heir, fit the pieces of his father's unfinished work together with deep understanding and artistry. The introduction and appendices were also put together by Christopher Tolkien, along with maps and genealogy tables, and eight stunning paintings and twenty-five pencil drawings from Oscar-winning artist, Alan Lee.
