Continuing the story begun in The Hobbit, this is the first part of Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Tolkien skapte en egen verden i fortellingene om hobbitene, små menneskelignende skapninger. Ringenes herre er en (uavhengig) fortsettelse av Hobbiten. Hobbitene lever i en verden ukjent for oss. Emnet i bøkene er dog kjent; kampen mellom det gode (hobbiter) og onde (Sauron). For at Sauron skal få ubegrenset makt, må han få tak i en spesiell ring, maktens ring. Skal ringen miste sin kraft, må den kastes i Dommedags juv i Mordors land. Den som eier ringen for lenge, blir ødelagt av dens krefter.
Armeene til Mørkets Herre er massive, og hans mørke skygge brer om seg. Mennesker, dverger, alver og enter går sammen for å kjempe mot ondskapen. Imens beveger Frodo og Sam seg lenger inn i Mordor, på sin heltemodige søken etter å ødelegge Maktens Ring. Dette er den endelige avslutningen på Tolkiens eventyrlige beretning Ringenes Herre, som begynner med Ringens brorskap og To tårn. «En triumferende avslutning ... et storslått stykke arbeid» Daily Telegraph «Tolkien var en genial historieforteller» Literary Review
Ringens brorskap er brutt, Frodo og Sam fortsetter alene nedover floden Anduin - alene, bortsett fra et mystisk, krypende vesen som følger etter dem overalt. Slik fortsetter Tolkiens eventyrlige beretning Ringenes Herre, som starter med Ringens brorskap og når sitt endelige klimaks i Atter en konge. «Blant de største fiksjonsverk i det 20. århundre» Sunday Telegraph «Storslagent fortalt, med enhver tenkelig nyanse, bevegelse og storhet» New Statesman
Maxitugaven av Ringenes Herre 1-3 er nå revidert og oppdatert, og utstyrt med nytt elegant omslag og lesebånd. Å gi en kort beskrivelse av Ringenes Herre er nesten umulig. Det er en overveldende og omfattende historie i en eventyrverden skapt med nøyaktighet ut i minste detalj, og den gir en intens leseropplevelse. Ringenes Herre handler på mange måter om hvordan man drar fra det trygge og velkjente, ut i den store verden med alle dens fristelser og farer. Bilbos nevø Frodo overtar den magiske ringen og blir raskt involvert i hendelser som går langt utover hans snevre hobbit-horisont. Ringen er en utrolig mektig gjenstand som egentlig tilhører den onde Sauron i landet Mordor, en demonisk skikkelse som er i ferd med å tilrive seg herredømmet over hele verden. Sauron bandt en gang for lenge siden mye av sin egen kraft i ringen, og søker nå desperat for å få den tilbake. Hvordan Frodo, med hjelp av hans hobbit-venner og trollmannen Gandalv, klarer seg i denne skjebnesvangre situasjonen, og deres lange ferder gjennom store deler av Midgard, utgjør handlingen i Ringenes Herre. Oversatt av Torstein Bugge Høverstad.
Dette er første del av Ringenes Herre
