Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings is a best-selling novel by JRR Tolkein, first published in 1954. It is set in the fictional land of Middle Earth. The three volumes of books follow Frodo Baggins’ journey to Mordor to destroy the One Ring. The ring is the most powerful object in Middle Earth forged centuries ago, and thought lost. Powerful forces also want the ring, and Frodo faces difficult battles in his quest to get to Mordor. There is a great deal of magic in the books, and fantastical beings and horrors that help or hinder Frodo’s journey. Sauron is the main antagonist in the novel, a necromancer who is intent on having the ring so he can control Middle Earth.
