So good to see this story availabe again.  Have you deleted 1 or 2 chapters?  Perhaps these have moved forward to Book 4 ??  When might we see book 2 back up?  

I love your middle earth characteres, they are just as they should be especially your Aragorn. 

Just think, one day there will be a book 4 and 5  (six was wonderfull) and maybe 7 and 8 and and ......... - tis too much, I will have to draw them out - one chapter a month (not likely, I'd read them all in one sitting if thats how they came).

I'm one of these gunshy people when it comes to reading WIPs. But since this story has been finished for quite a while now and I highly enjoyed the first two installments in this series, I thought I start reading. Have to quit for the day, but I wanted to give you some feedback nonetheless.

I love the different pieces of the puzzle that make up your stories (and your characters). The western-like opening in the Prancing Pony (I had really expected a bar fight where someone crashes a table *g*), the gathering in Annuminas that reminded me of the opening of Diana Gabaldon's "The Fiery Cross" (without dragging on for 200 pages), the political scheming in the back, the bootcamp atmosphere. I could go on...

How you Aragorn get used to a different lifestyle and the fact that his different upbringing allows him to bring a breath of fresh air in the ranger's camp is a great idea. And Halbarad is a wonderful character in this! He really shines:)

Will be back tomorrow for the rest of the story.

Ch. 1: Fare Thee Well

Hi. I printed this off when I first got notice of it but have only just started reading. I find your story to be very well written, Tolkienesque in style, and I like the way you write Aragorn. Your first chapter was a fine read and I (as well as Halbarad) got a chuckle out of rather foppishly dressed Aragorn's ability to handle those poor farm lads. I am a voracious LOTR (primarily stories involving Aragorn) fanfiction reader and I find yours to be particularly good.  Are you planning on any updates soon? I know a lot of people to whom I could recommend this story but some are a little 'gunshy' about reading unfinished stories. At any rate, I thank you for sharing this fine story with us and I do plan on reading the rest.  Excellent beginning.

Ch. 11: The Council at Rivendell

Just finished up the last three chapters. I do not envy Aragorn - even if he seems to have a highly entertaining life. The subtle sealonging was an idea of genius. I think I've never seen that before in fanfiction. And of course I loved Bilbo (I have a soft spot for Aragorn-hobbit interaction).

Even though, I feel kind of sorry for him. He is well loved and his (extended) family only wants the best for him, but all the scheming in the background makes me nervous. I've never had the stomach for politics...

Thank you for an excellent story!
