Story Summary

Driven by her pursuers into an old crypt in Osgiliath, Goldwyn finds herself trapped in a nightmare from which there is no awakening. But are the horrors real, or only figments of her guilt-tormented mind?

Having successfully evaded the orcs, Fródwine, Frumgár and Fritha are on a quest to get back to Rohan. However, this is not some childish adventure - it is a matter of life and death.

Journeying through the wasteland of Anorien, Elfhild and Elffled desperately try to keep one step ahead of the slavers. But will they be successful?

Can any of them escape the evil destiny which the enemy has planned for them, or is to attempt to do so utterly useless?

The third book in "The Circles" - an alternative universe tale exploring what might have happened had the ending of The Lord of the Rings been different.
