The Mandrake Child ~ by WindSurfBabe

If only he'd been mean, she thought. If only he'd been resentful and harsh, she could have done her duty with a clear conscience, and the regret his death had brought would not have been.

Of course there are thousands of stories out there, and I have only read a fraction of them. NOT intended to be a scientific survey! My picks of stories that I feel are particularly well written, stylistically interesting, lyrical... Regardless of era, topic or character.

Why This Story?

A really original idea with well drawn OCs and scenes, finely done straightforward prose in a style that is altogether modern but steeped in the otherworldliness of Mddle Earth.
