19. The Mirror of Galadriel
In wrath the Lord seeks scapegoats. The Lady, faith's comfort. Old enemies are reconciled by her grace, but the pavanne she dances with the company is one of temptation.
And who is most threat to the Ringbearer? Boromir, who could not endure Galadriel's gaze? Or the Lady herself, with her mirror, and her magic, and her long desire for power?
Perils more subtle than the Balrog of Moria, in a land more fair. Did they know their danger, had the trial not been passed?
