I always found Túrin's story in the Silmarillion to be very sad and unfair. His life is a series of disasters, which ends with the death of basically everybody. In this story I've changed things a teeny bit, with a huge difference in the outcome. :) It starts angsty, but things improve soon!

It's not necessary to have read the Silmarillion to understand and enjoy the story.

The cover was made in Gimp with an original drawing by Zomburai (twitter.com/zomburai).

Characters:

Túrin, son of Húrin and Morwen. Born in Dor-lómin, but raised with the elves of Doriath.

Finduilas, daughter of King Orodreth of Nargothrond. In love with Túrin, and betrothed to his friend Gwindor.
