Of Numenor That Was

General Comment

Very dark, but very well-written. The images are clear and chilling, but the redemptive final drabble left me with a feeling of hope despite the despair in the preceding ones: No matter how badly the Numenoreans messed up, they still belonged to the One.

I think what added the greatest depth for me, and was most disturbing, was the way that Sauron facilely incorporated warped Truth into his fabricated religion.

Ch. 1: Of Numenor That Was

I've loved this series since I first read it, and it's an honor to read it again.  The terror of what Numenor became under Sauron's influence is so well communicated.

Marta, this was quite a chilling look at Sauron's temple on Numenor. An excellent piece that captures a grim mood. I highly enjoyed it.
