Follow the epic story of Alinor and Aldariil, a prince and princess of the Royal House of Mirkwood, along with their family and companions, as they come to discover their twisted places in the center of a war that has been brewing for ages: where Elf fights Elf, the forces of Light must battle the Darkness, and the powers of Rivendell, Mirkwood, and the Istari face off against the will of Sauron, his Orcs, and the fallen Dark Elves.

Return to Middle-Earth and enjoy the tale of the rarely seen times before the events of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".
