And it seems everytime I press on 'fiction' in the category options the character list reduces. Anyway, my dear Spiced, could we add "Anaire" to the list please.

I don't know why I'm having so many problems with posting. It's not the usual problem. Now it's the character list stops at 'N' for me. I'm sure it went further than that.

Hello! I am Elfhild, one of writers behind "The Circles," a series of alternative universe fan novels based upon the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. Angmar and I started this series in 2004. Angmar passed away in 2020, but he wanted the series to be continued posthumously.

"The Circles" explores two very intriguing questions: "What if the Witch-king wasn't killed at Pelennor?" and "What if Sauron regained the One Ring?" "The Circles" is also different in that the story focuses more on Tolkien's world than his characters.

Title: The Circles: Book 5: Through the Valley of Death by Angmar and Elfhild New!
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 1]
Summary: Recaptured by the Haradric slave traders, Elfhild and Elffled once again find themselves forced to resume their journey to the Dark Land of Mordor. Once they pass over the Anduin, all hope of escape is lost, and each mile that passes brings them ever closer to the culmination of their fears. Home is behind them; slavery lies ahead. Torn between loyalties and tormented by grief and guilt, the twin sisters struggle to accept the fate which seems to await them at the journey's end.

Before the twins and their captors ever reach Mordor, however, they must pass through the ethereal mists of the Morgul Vale, a place so terrifying that even the minds of brave men succumb to madness. In this realm of mists and shadows, nothing is as it seems, and the boundaries between reality and illusion are blurred to obscurity. What strange sights and experiences await them in the treacherous Morgul Pass?

Summary: As the last wain in the slaver's caravan crosses the Anduin, the fate of the captives is sealed. At the mercy of her enemies and the delusions of her own mind, Goldwyn resolves to kindle her hatred into a burning passion, even if it means spurning those who might truly care for her.

Meanwhile, twins Elfhild and Elffled and the three sons of Goldwyn - Fródwine, Frumgár and Fritha - journey through Anórien, though the courses which they take vary greatly. Danger lies everywhere, but what about friends unlooked-for?

Title: The Circles: Book 3: To Escape a Dark Destiny by Angmar and Elfhild
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Driven by her pursuers into an old crypt in Osgiliath, Goldwyn finds herself trapped in a nightmare from which there is no awakening. But are the horrors real, or only figments of her guilt-tormented mind?

Having successfully evaded the orcs, Fródwine, Frumgár and Fritha, the three sons of Goldwyn, embark on a quest to return to Rohan. However, this is not some childish adventure - it is a matter of life and death.

Journeying through the wasteland of Anorien, Elfhild and Elffled desperately try to keep one step ahead of the slavers. Will they be successful, or will they be captured and returned to the bonds of slavery?

Can any of them escape the evil destiny which the enemy has planned for them, or is to attempt to do so utterly useless?

Title: The Circles: Book 2: Journey of Sorrow by Angmar and Elfhild
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 0]
Summary: After arriving at the ruins of Minas Tirith, the Rohirric captives are handed over to a group of Haradric slavers led by Esarhaddon uHuzziya, one of the owners of a slave trading business in Nurn. A man of might and mastery, this handsome, rakish Southron symbolizes everything that the Rohirric women dread.

Orphaned, their land destroyed, twins Elfhild and Elffled struggle to remain defiant against their foes. Goldwyn, stern and proud, refuses to surrender to despair's throes like so many others have done.

Each step on this journey of sorrow takes the Rohirric captives closer to Mordor, the Land of Shadows from which there is no return. Is there any hope of escape, or is slavery to be their doom?

Title: The Circles: Book 1: The Triumph of the Shadow by Angmar and Elfhild
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 0]
Summary: The West loses the War of the Ring and the proud city of Minas Tirith falls to the forces of the Dark Lord. In these days of darkness and fear, two young maidens, twins Elfhild and Elffled, are captured by orcs in a preliminary raid against Rohan. Herded off with other captives, the sisters know little of their destination, only that they are being driven ever East towards Mordor, the dreadful land of horror and shadows. Their world destroyed, their fate uncertain, they face the bleak prospects of slavery at the hands of their enemies.

The armies of Mordor, driven ceaselessly by their masters, march ever onward towards the West. The Dark Lord Sauron sits upon his black throne, eagerly anticipating the final victory as he watches history unfold through the palantir.

With Gondor fallen, will Rohan be conquered at last... and then the rest of Middle-earth?
