I love your Sauron (Mairon). I sympathize for him while remembering that he is the villain Tolkien wrote. I especially like your take on his relationship with Melkor.

Author's Response: Thanks very much! That's the balance I was striving for, to make him a sympathetic character, without losing sight of the fact he's evil. (No one thinks they're evil, so when the story is told from an evil person's point of view, the evil doesn't show much.) Uvatha
