I've just been reading "Where the Shadows Lie" as recommended on mikononyte

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003Y3BLL2/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

It is a fun read for Tolkien fans (and also Wagner fans and lovers of Icelandic sagas). The plot is set in Iceland and concerns a possible lost source that inspired Tolkien.

lots of twists and action and a very Tolkienesque ending.

On the subject of books, this one I read years ago as a fan of the Ring cycle, and it is hilariously funny.

What might happen if the Ring of Power fell into the hands of a very ordinary young man.
