Summary: This is the continuing saga of a 36 year old female soldier who finds herself in Middle Earth during The Return of the King. This is part one of a series which will follow the plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings books. She is not a tenth walker and the events as written by Professor Tolkien will not be rewritten to accommodate her. Her part in the story and her interactions with the main characters will occur in places and times that Tolkien did not include in his writings.

I've been reading and rereading Book three since fall. Decided to go back to the beginning. Thank you so much for writing these stories.

Author's Response: I'll say "you're welcome", but the truth is, I had no choice. It was either write them or go insane. Thanks for the review.

Author's Response: Have I blown up your inbox yet? Thanks for the tip, I've never heard a recording of that song before. I'll have to get it, now! :D

Thanks for writing this story. It's very good.

She's becoming more than a 2 dimensional character, if that makes sense.

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you're liking the story and Lane. I've been trying hard to make her "real" so I'm glad she seems to have depth and isn't falling flat!

 

Thanks so much for the review, and the new chapter is up, go check it out!
