About this item
The Two Towers is the second volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings. Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to destroy the Ruling Ring in the Cracks of Doom in order to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in a battle in the Mines of Moria, and Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape, the rest of the company was attacked by Orcs. Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin ? alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
