Amazing story, really well written! Thank you for the break from reality ;)
| Medilia chapter 20 . 2/3/2013
This story was absolutely amazing! Exactly what I was looking for when I wanted it!
| Nearing Midnight chapter 20 . 1/22/2013
This was one of the most excellently written stories I have ever read. Definitely deserves at least a place on my favorites list. ;)

... Elbereth's flame. This was a monumental task, and yet you achieved it and passed with full marks. I read this in one day - couldn't put it down. Thank you for letting me in on this adventure.

I'd read this story before, on a site where only members can leave reviews, and I'm delighted to find it here so that I can tell you how much I enjoyed it.

I just wanted to leave a quick message saying how much I loved your story. It's so refreshing to see an author who doesn't portray legolas as superman or gimli as his dopey sidekick. I thought you o/c orcs were very good as well and the way the story linked back to the canon version was excellent. Keep on writing!

I really like it. Just the story I was looking to read.
| Tola Burke chapter 20 . 5/26/2010
An excellent story altogether. Some things better, some things worse. I'd have been interested in seeing this followed through with to the end.
What must Gondor be thinking, seeing a bunch of the Enemy's forces turning for Rohan? And Denethor has seen a Hobbit in his Palantir that he likely imagined was Sauron-Only.
He'd be really worried about that prophecy now. Especially since Aragorn has delared himself(Though not willingly), and you know Sauron would hold that on Denethor. I wonder what it'd all lead to?
| BelleCelestyn chapter 20 . 5/3/2009
i really liked the story until you brought Eowyn into the image. Legolas seemed to have changed almost immediately when one looks at his actions; with Gandalf and Gimli, he seemed reserved in nature, but once he met Eowyn he became almost boyish...
I don't know about you but it seemed to me that you tried to make a romance story out of this... and it was such a great story in the beginning. I can't help but say that the introduction of Eowyn into the picture disappointed me terribly.

This story is wonderful. I enjoyed reading every minute of it, and absolutely will return to read it numerous times. Thank you for writing this in a way that is Tolkien-esque, and is also completely believable. Excellent.
| Galinda-girl chapter 19 . 10/4/2008
Oh! There's seriously only one more chapter left! I am gonna cry and scream and read this over and over it was so good! Congrats on making me cry again.
Great character development w/ Legolas btw, the best story I have ever read on fanfiction. OMG I will just die when this story is over. PST... Will there be a sequel by any chance?
| StarLight9 chapter 20 . 10/2/2008
It's sad that such a wonderful tale has come to an end. I enjoyed this a lot, thank you so much for writing it! And I just love your hobbits! How uncivilized of the Big Folk not to smoke pipeweed!
| vectis chapter 20 . 9/24/2008
This was such an exciting and enjoyable, if somewhat harrowing in parts, story to read and I thought the way you managed to set-up each character to follow their original story-line at the end very well done.
Sorry that I missed reviewing a few of the previous chapters - but there was a problem with my emails and I did not see the story alerts until today.
| Firefly-Maj chapter 20 . 9/23/2008
*pouts* its over...
Nice ending, leaving Aragorn brooding a little more, meaning there MIGHT be a sequel? )
Love Legolas line "I am more than my weapon" when hes talking to Éowyn, by the way!
| J.S. Mews chapter 20 . 9/23/2008
This was a fantastic story! I really loved how you managed to weave Saruman into the mix and then straighten everything out so the story would go on as originally written. Congratulations on writing a great story!
