Brrr! One of the darker of Lindelea's stories, but as always, completely true to her universe. There is violence yes, and it made me cringe, but that is what violence should do, and so Lin has certainly succeeded here! There are some very clever ideas in this story, and also some wonderful original characters. And I enjoyed Bergil, Legolas, and Gimli very much, as well as the familiar characters! It was especially enjoyable seeing the portrayal of Sam and Rosie's older children.
