True, the principal characters are an army medic and scout of Mordor and an erstwhile Ranger of Ithilien but all the action takes place after the War of the Ring. More fundamentally, the Elves and the Wizards are using Gondor to destroy the growing power of technology, which threatens to destroy the traditional balance of Nature and power in the world. In order to destroy the Mirror, Haladdin and Tzerlag must acquire two palantiri, bring one into the presence of the Mirror, simultaneously throwing the other into the fires of Orodruin Mt. The remainder of the novel is a confusing account of their efforts to fulfill the mission divided into four parts that focus on various aspects of the quest. Part I sets up the quest. Part III is — as far as I can tell — a largely pointless diversion to Umbar, where Tangorn the Ithilien Ranger mentioned above has to do something to advance the cause.

Free Kirill Yeskov! But be quick. But apparently the novel is a huge success in Russia and has done well everywhere it has appeared. Based on the premise that history is written by the victors, The Last Ring-Bearer views The Lord of the Rings as heroic propaganda and seeks to re-imagine what really happened.
Mordor is a pluralistic society where men, orcs and trolls live in harmony. Gandalf, Aragorn and the elves, seeking to preserve feudal power against the promise of an emerging industrial society in Mordor, are the principle villains. Orcs and trolls are not inherently evil, but merely creatures like men, Hobbits or elves. I read the first nine chapters, which quickly takes the story through the battle of Minas Tirith and the fall of Sauron, setting up the remainder of the novel to explore the Orcan resistance.
Or at least that seems to be where the narrative is leading. In a few strokes Yeskov converts familiar characters into utterly credible alternate versions of themselves. Aragorn and Eomer, for example, are personally brave and resourceful but also ruthless in pursuit of self-interest. In other words, far closer to the warlords of medieval history than the virtuous paragons of Tolkien.
Anyone who was ever the least bit troubled by how convenient it is for the orcs and other denizens of Mordor to be depraved by nature will find The Last Ring-Bearer fascinating.

I suggest acting fast. The Society of Authors warns that non-commercial fan fiction is not exempt from copyright. Of course, pastiche has a venerable and often valuable history, though usually built on books in the public domain. A comic parody, Bored of the Rings , has been around for 40 years. Far from damaging the Tolkein brand, a pastiche of this quality can only enhance it. Share this:.
The Last Ringbearer
In the last few years I have found it more interesting to deal with living children than with extinct arthropods — I teach electives in high school, summer and winter supplemental courses, etc. I wrote a couple of textbooks, got involved in creating a new natural history school curriculum; if I had to state a preference, it is precisely those activities that I consider my most important. Do you get the picture? On the other hand, I can somewhat understand the feelings of "professional" Tolkien fans who foolishly parted with their money to buy this… this… whatever. This is not unlike some teenager, besotted with pirate fiction, tricked by the "Corsair" title into buying a book by a certain G.
