The Return of the King is the final installment in the Lord of the Rings. Separated by events, as the Shadow of Mordor grows and the opposing armies battle for good and evil, the Fellowship of the Ring draws together again.
The Lord of the Rings maintains the breaks between the 3-volume set, as well as Tolkien's division of the text into six "books;" page numbers follow the "books" as if they were in one volume, not three; Volume III contains pages 731-1137, softcover. Index and appendices included.
The third volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
As the Shadow of Mordor grows across the land, the Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, has joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and takes part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escape into Fangorn Forest and there encounter the Ents. Gandalf has miraculously returned and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Sam has left his master for dead after a battle with the giant spider, Shelob; but Frodo is still alivenow in the foul hands of the Orcs. And all the while the armies of the Dark Lord are massing as the One Ring draws ever nearer to the Cracks of Doom.
