Hands of the King

Oh. My. G*d.

This is the most incredible description of the attack on Umbar I've ever read. The rest of the chapter is your usual great mix of plot and dialogue, but the attack is in a class of its own. I think you have outdone the battle in Osgiliath in "Fire" and then some. Beautiful and horrific in equal measure.

What a great telling of the defeat of the corairs at Umbar. One of the best I've read.

The sad part is of course that now it would seem that Thorongil must leave not only Gondor, Denethor and Findulis, but us as well.

I look forward to your telling of how that all comes about.

I agree with both your commentors... this is a great chapter. The battle is stupendous... keeping track of where each boat is, who is manning which boat, where the Fire is falling, etc. etc. etc. - keeps the tension going strong.

And I love Finduilas part in all this - strong and doing battle herself for those she loves.

Fergus, Casso, Agape & Jemms,

Thank you for the great comments! Rather than waste space with long comment replies, I have posted all of my replies in the Hands of the King forum attached to the story.

Yes, I'll have another chapter out on Sunday or Monday.
