Intriguing tale that makes use of one of Tolkien's favorite plot devices: jewelry that simply refuses to stay put. Seriously, though, the blending of the night with the ring was fascinating, and I enjoyed watching one of the more obscure tails wend its way through other, more prominent tales.

This is an intriguing piece with many different layers and equally different players. From Numenor to Hobbiton to Rohan and back to Hobbiton, these assorted and unexpected characters are all woven together by a special jewel and shooting stars. A very intricate story which shows the author's knowledge of Tolkien and also her excellent writing skills.
