This book is a nunciate of The Lord of the Rings, but at the same time a self-contained and complete legendarium. The mythological history of the fictional, but surprisingly realistic Middle-earth was masterfully compiled under a single cover by the author’s son, Christopher Tolkien. You have in your hands not just a compilation, but a real epic chronicle of the struggle between good and evil described in some separate works. Ainulindalë is the myth about the Creation of the world, about the origin of Evil and reason of Falling; Valaquenta is the picture of the hierarchy of divine powers, delineation of their disposition and role in the Creation; Quenta Silmarillion is the history of Silmarils: from their creation, the rebellion of Fëanor and his family against the gods, the expulsion of the rebels from Valinor and their return to Middle-earth, to the hopeless, despite their sacrificial courage, war with the great Enemy over these perfect jewels; Akallabêth tells of falling of the great island kingdom of Númenor at the end of the Second Age; and the tale Of the Rings of Power notices the majestic events of the Third Age, primarily the waging of the War of the Ring.
