Editor's Note

Great Tolkien introduction…
“The Children of Húrin” is more complete than “The Silmarillion” and less dense than “The Lord of the Rings” (and its appendices), providing a great introduction for any new Tolkien fans or an interesting departure for established fans from Christopher’s arcana.

Description

The Children of Húrin is the first complete book by J.R.R.Tolkien since the 1977 publication of The Silmarillion. Six thousand years before the One Ring is destroyed, Middle-earth lies under the shadow of the Dark Lord Morgoth. The greatest warriors among elves and men have perished, and all is in darkness and despair. But a deadly new leader rises, Túrin, son of Húrin, and with his grim band of outlaws begins to turn the tide in the war for Middle-earth—awaiting the day he confronts his destiny and the deadly curse laid upon him.

The paperback edition of The Children of Húrin includes eight color paintings by Alan Lee and a black-and-white map.
