The Two Towers is the second part of The Lord of the Rings, J. R. R. Tolkien's romantic epic of the great war in which the Third Age of Middle-earth came to an end. It recounts the further adventures of the band of companions introduced in The Fellowship of the Ring. They have come to the end of their first journey and to a choice of ways; to turn east to Mordor, the Land of the Enemy; or to go to the city of Gondor that awaits the assault of the Dark Lord.

Frodo has decided that it is his task and his alone to carry the Ring back to the Fire that will consume it and destroy its power for evil; so he, accompanied only by his servant, Sam Gamgee, has crossed the River and is making his way eastward to the ghastly borders of Mordor. The others are caught in the strategy of the traitor Saruman, and pass on to battle and peril in the West.

Great though these perils are, the War of the Ring is still to come...
