Product description

Review

‘Never did [Tolkien] write a more sustained account of battle. With dragons and fiery balrogs galore, the attack on Gondolin makes Peter Jackson’s souped-up cinema battles look like tabletop games.’
The Times

‘The text is rife with references to characters and creatures that come to play a role in The Lord of the Rings… one passage in particular seems to set up one of the most famous scenes from the LOTR trilogy.’
Time

‘It’s a load-bearing pillar in the grander narrative that eventually came to encompass better-known works. Tolkien explicitly expressed his wish later in life that the three Great Tales of Middle-earth’s early days ― The Children of Húrin, Beren and Lúthien, and The Fall of Gondolin ― along with The Lord of the Rings and other writings, should be considered as “one long Saga of the Jewels and the Rings”.’
Entertainment Weekly
