Tolkien's lost book : Children of Hurin

 A new book by Tolkien about the middle earth is to be published after 50 years , he had written the oldest and earliest version about the book before the LOTR during the WWII , then after finishing the LOTR he returned back and re-wrote again ,that time he greatly enlarged it in complexities of motive and characters . But he could not bring it to final and finished form. Yet Christophet Tolkien completed the unfinished work of his father and presented to the readers world wide as another saga from the middle earth  

Already I am looking forward to put my hands on this book

Its events occur long before the time of the Hobbit Biblo Bagins great adventure when the Treebeard once walked in the great land of the west

The story is set in the the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West

In brief it is a first battle or encounter between good and evil , the good presented by the Children of Hurin and evil presented by the first Dark Lord Morgoth. The Children of Hurin are the elves which Morgoth bore their hate to the level of destroying them because they are the children of the same man Hurin who had dared to defy and to scorn him to his face, and as a curse and a revenge Morgoth sends to his formidable servant, Glaurang, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire.

The illustraitions of the book are so great , they are drawn by Alan Lee who is famous for his work in LOTR and King Kong as conceptual artist and designer
