The moral of these books is that too much power can corrupt anyone.

This is the story of the power of a ring which controls all of the main characters to some extent and the journey they make to destroy it before it destroys them.

What a wonderful set of book these are. Totally suitable for everyone to read and from the first page you are transported into a magical world where there is a gripping tale and marvellous drama and characters on every page. It is a real treat for all fantasy lovers.

I have now read these books so many times that my copies are falling apart but even after all these years, these books never cease to lose their magic.

If you haven't had the experience - jump right in and give these a go - I found that they were very easy reading and I always find it very hard to put them down as they are so engrossing.

They would also make a wonderful present for any age and they are adored by young and old alike.
A total treat for any reader and I bet you will not be able to read them just the once !!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
