Published in October 1955, The Return of the King is the last book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The book starts with Gandalf and Pippin arriving in Minas Tirith just in time to prepare for the siege. While people are trying to defend Minas Tirith, Aragorn is travelling through the Paths of the Dead to find help in the battle to come. In a third group, Merry stayed behind with Théoden, since he pledged allegiance to him. When Théoden finally hears word of the battle in Minas Tirith, he sets off with his company to go help out his neighbors.
When the siege is finally over, Gandalf tells everyone that Frodo is currently trying to achieve a very important quest and instead of staying in Minas Tirith waiting for another siege, they should go to Mordor and divert the Eye’s attention to them so he doesn’t see Frodo in his lands.
In the land of Mordor, Sam manages to save Frodo from the orcs and they make their way to Mount Doom.
This book was full of emotions, it was crazy. So many details as usual, except for the one part I would’ve loved some details, but I guess it wasn’t a moment as important as I thought it would be. It was still an awesome book that I strongly recommend to anyone that hasn’t read it yet!
Until Next Time!
