Reviewed by: weepingnaiad -- Score: 4

A lovely, warm tale that contains all the elements of a perfect romance. There is the unwitting, accidental reveal of a previously not realized secret. There is jealousy, danger, hurt, comfort, and a deliciously innocent Erestor. Glorfindel is definitely the golden warrior in this and he and Erestor are wonderfully paired. The story gives depth to Gondolin and is a gem to read, even if it is still ongoing. It is worth reading because there are already satisfying denouements in the story. Wonderful!
