Ah, I'm glad everything turned out all right in the end!
I can't help it, but the showdown at the Stone of Erech felt somewhat Buffy-ish to me. I can't even pinpoint why, but it sort of had a Buffy-feel to it. Which, of course, can never be a bad thing:)

Well that was a very exicting chapter. Very smart of Elrond to give it to Aragorn. Poor Legolas to be a healer by proxy.

Just one suggestion:
Swearing loudly, he jumped away from the window just moments before a sword sang through the air where his head had been just moments before.
"just moments before" is repeated, probably because two
thoughts about how to type the sentence banged heads
together. Think the sentence would best be:
"Swearing loudly, he jumped away from the window
before a sword sang through the air where his head
had been just moments before."
Also, any research you can do into injuries, the
treatment for them, and the future consequences
would greatly aid your story.
In particular, I was
thinking of the broken arm that had healed improperly.
When a bone breaks, it can be a clean break without
misalignment, a clean break with misalignment, or
a fragmented one where bits of bone are embedded in
the muscles (ouch). If it was a clean break with
misalignment, the healing process would involve new
bone being formed but not in a good way...there
would most likely be a big knot of bone, so when
Aragorn decided to rebreak the bone and realign it,
that might not have worked. The knot of bone would
have broken into pieces.
I'm not a doctor or a surgeon. It would be nice if
you had one to consult-that would make you the
best writer on The best advice I
can give is to research, and CHOOSE which injuries
your characters receive. There can be lots of
injuries that do not leave deformities or disabilities
or even death as the consequences. One should
keep treatments reasonably close to what would be
available in such a culture.
Oh..don't have anyone give liquids or food to anyone
unconscious. The liquid would go into the lungs because
the tiny flap of tissue that covers the trachea (air way) when swallowing while alert is useless when one is
not awake, so the trachea (which is situated just in
front of the esophagus)will receive some of the liquid.
I heard one fan fic author made a "leather tube" to
introduce fluids to unconscious people, but I don't
think that was wise! Hospitals use plastic tubes which are introduced through the nose. Sometimes inexperienced
people can accidentally get them into the trachea
even then! Hospitals can't be compared with
wilderness medical care, SO it's much easier to
construct a story where that isn't a problem.
Thank you for sharing your outstanding talent as a
