That was beautiful and sad and horrible. The battle on the pass, I mean by that last adjective. Of course, I knew Glorfindel would fall but still it hit me hard. I can't come up with any other words. Wonderful story. Well done, Viv.

Wow! Can I say that again? Wow! I felt like I was reading one of those suspenseful, thriller novels. I was absolutely taken with this story. What fantastic writing. I sat on the edge of my chair and could not pull myself away from this fiction. I have now been introduced to the most complete and awesome depiction of Glorfindel and I am thoroughly impressed. I love him in this story. Viv writes the fiction with incredible sense of detail. It is woven together like a tapestry or art work, each piece fitting in just the right place. I was sad when it was over, not only because Glorfindel met his fate but because I was so enthralled I wanted more, more of Idril and Tuor and their little boy.
