The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by Tolkien, book novel, Del Rey
#1 on the Big Read List (UK's top 200). The classic second novel in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The Two Towers - the second volume of The Lord of the Rings - continues the epic story begun in The Fellowship of the Ring.

The Fellowship is broken.

Aragorn, the heir to the kingdom of Men, Gimli the dwarf, and Legolas the elf begin a race against all odds to rescue the hobbits Merry and Pippin, who have been abducted by Orcs. During their search, they encounter the Riders of Rohan who warn them that the forces of the Dark Lord, Sauron, and Saruman, the wizard who betrayed Gandalf and the rest of his order- threaten King Theoden and the people of Rohan.

Only Frodo and Sam are left to continue taking the One Ring on into Mordor to attempt to destroy it. They are guided by Gollum, a deceitful and dangerous creature who secretly wants the Ring for himself.

War, treachery, unexpected allies, and the joyous return of an old friend keep your heart pumping throughout this continuation of Tolkien's epic myth.
