'Holy Grail' of JRR Tolkien books coming in August

A New 'Lord Of The Rings' Book Will Be Published This Year

This new book apparently came as a surprise considering Christopher Tolkien, who's 93, made it seem as though Beren and Lúthien would be the last of his father's manuscripts that he would personally oversee. The Noldor stronghold is the lovely city of Gondolin, built to be undiscoverable by Morgoth's forces. That is why 45 years after his death we will see that universe expanded even further with yet another new J.R.R Tolkien book.

JRR Tolkien is said to have described The Fall of Gondolin as "the first real story of this imaginary world" of Middle-earth, and together with the other two stories, regarded it as one of the "Great Tales" of the Elder Days, happening long before the events of The Lord of the Rings.

Likely drawing inspiration from his harrowing experience, The Fall of Gondolin contains one of Tolkien's largest battles narratives outside of The Lord of the Rings.

The Fall of Gondolin will be released on August 30, and is available for pre-order now. Tolkien never actually wrote the full story, but Christopher Tolkien has compiled a version of it from various sources. It's called The Fall of Gondolin and it details one of Middle-earth's oldest and most important legends.

Burmese soldiers jailed for Rohingya massacre
Almost 700,000 Rohingya have crossed into southern Bangladesh since August, creating one of the world's largest refugee camps. The Rohingya are Muslims who live in majority-Buddhist Myanmar.

"It's a quest story with a reluctant hero who turns into a genuine hero - it's a template for everything Tolkien wrote afterwards", John Garth said, author of Tolkien and the Great War. "It has a dark lord, our first encounter with orcs and balrogs", Garth continued. Ulmo warns Tuor of a disaster fated for the city of Gondolin, directing him to travel there, giving him a magic cloak (not unlike the ones that Frodo and company wear in The Lord of the Rings,) that hides him safely from the eyes of enemies.

The Fall of Gondolin harks back to the battle between Tuor and Morgoth's army and how the elvish city was founded and built.

The latest entry will be the third and final in a trilogy based on stories from the Silmarillion that includes the Children of Hurin, and the Tale of Beren and Luthien.

Last week it was announced that Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series would get five seasons and could cost over $1 billion, making it the most expensive show ever. Let us know your thoughts down below!
