Tales and legends chronicling the world's beginnings and the happenings of the First Age, focusing on the theft of the Simarils--the three jewels crafted by Fèeanor--by Morgoth, first Dark Lord of Middle-earth.
Before there was Bilbo, Frodo, or Gandalf, there were the Elder Days, when the Dark Lord Morgoth's obsession with the magical gems called the Silmarils drove a wedge between the worlds of elves and men. THE SILMARILLION is essential reading for fans of the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy.
