The Shadow Rises Once More in Middle-earth
“An image of malice and hatred made visible; and the Eye of Sauron the Terrible few could endure.”

Gorgoroth, the valley of terror in the Land of Shadow. Darkness lay there under the sun. Fire glowed amid the smoke. Mount Doom was burning, and a great reek rising.

Then at last his gaze was held: wall upon wall, battlement upon battlement, black, immeasurably strong, mountain of iron, gate of steel, tower of adamant, he saw it: Barad-dûr, Fortress of Sauron. All hope left him…
