- The story follows Éowyn from childhood to her life in Gondor.
It captures the well-known characters from "The Lord of the Rings" in small episodes that highlight the developement of Éowyn's characters. The story is firmly rooted in canon, but nevertheless not at all boring, but brings Éowyn's world to vibrant life. The interactions between the various characters are a little hesitant, but that fits the style of writing and this interpretation of Éowyn very well. The style of writing is dense and colourful, sometimes almost a bit too colourful, but never crossing the line. What I especially noted was the use of many unusual metaphors and similes that never once turned bad, but make me sigh with happiness at the careful beauty of the language.
This is one of the best LOTR stories I have read in weeks and I am very glad that I discovered it here.
