Yo ho ho ho, a pirate's life for me!  Never a dull moment with Thorongil and his sidekick captain, Fallon.   I truly enjoyed this installment of your series.  I can still picture Thorongil emerging out of his room minus his beard dressed up as a pirate!  Most memorable for me!  It's great to see the old OC's back.  Of course you left it off with the reader wanting more! What the heck has Fallon gotten Thorongil and himself into now?  As usual it was a pleasure.

I've had this story lying around in my desk for months and I finally got around to reading it. Must say it was a great read. You write with such rich detail and I found myself enthralled from the first chapter to the last. It was very exciting, full of intrigue and true to character (as I see Tolkien writing Aragorn) throughout. Excellent story!
