Like a Blade Forged in Fire  by Lialathuveril 4 Review(s)

A terrible fear to hold--that enemies of Gondor may have used orcs to hide their own incursion into Rohan, and perhaps in hopes of finding and killing the true heir of the last legitimate king of Harad and his mother. Now, to see how well Eomer fares in his new journey.

Author Reply: Yes, it's a clever plan of their enemies, isn't it. They might even have managed to kill the King of Rohan too, as a bonus. That at least has been averted.

You wrote the story of the battle so well. I feel hard pressed when writing action scenes or battles but yours flowed so smoothly. Nicely done.

The plot thickens with this new group of possible Gondorians headed for Edoras! Eeeek! Again you have carried this story so well!

Hope you are well!



Author Reply: Thank you! I borrowed a little from the battle with the orcs outside Fangorn Forest, the way they charge the camp, then wheel round and charge again. If you're on horseback, you don't want to get bogged down.

Hope you're well too!

Yikes! Sunnild, Lotherial and Khuri will have their hands full leading the group of women and children anyway. Now, with night falling on the open plain with no place to hide... Eomer, hurry! Now, I think the loyal little stallion may be a factor in protecting his lady savior. I hope he survives the encounter!

Author Reply: Yes, the group of women and children will be slow, but the Haradrim have quite far to go. And then of course there's Eomer and his men on their heels. We'll see who will win this race...

Thanks for following!

Oh dear! The orcs were just the cover! Hope they catch up on time with the baddies!

Author Reply: Yes, I'm afraid the orcs were just a distraction. Though if they had managed to kill the King of Rohan, that would have been welcome too.
