Interesting addition to the Brandybuck family history. The idea that one hobbit did indeed return from the campaign against Angmar is creepy in and of itself, and Lindelea makes good use of contrasts to tell the whole story. We start at the end, go back to the beginning, and gradually fill in the gaps as we go. Good stuff.

This being the Horror category, I was actually afraid that there wouldn't be a happy ending here. Good suspense and build up to, in the end, the obvious thing the Other was. I liked how the time jumped from the present thing they were about to do to the past.
