A Perilous Journey to Lorien  by LadyJaina 2 Review(s)
KathReviewed Chapter: 9 on 3/7/2021
Lithuania I am loving your work! I bingeread all 9 chapters yesterday because they were so good.
I really like the part of The Fellowship of the Ring that you have decided to add your own twist to. Don't think I've read another story that concentrates on that particular section.
Also, it's great that you are giving each character a share of the spotlight by writing different chapters from a different individual's point of view.
I am a real fan of Aragorn and sometimes skip sections that don't focus on him, but not in this case! I am particularly enjoying the Legolas\ Gimli parts and loving the grudging respect and even stronger emotions that are developing between them. I am just glad that I know Legolas will survive, poor guy, you're really putting him through it!
Your description of each character is really true to their essence in Tolkien's books,so glad you are keeping faith with the author.
Now I hope for more of Strider and would love it if you would delve into his back story where he met and eventually won the heart of an even princess!

Author Reply: Thank you so much! I also have to confess I usually skip over sections that don't focus on the main characters, and I thought I'd have trouble writing from multiple points of view. The irony is that I've actually found the scenes with Aragorn to be more difficult to right than Boromir's POV (he's my least favorite character).

Don't worry, we will be returning to Strider, soon!
