'The Hobbit' and it's sequels,'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, make up the most popular fantasy series of all time. Set in Middle-Earth, these tales explore a richly devised fantasy realm inhabited by an array of mythical beings, both good and evil. 'The Hobbit' introduces us to Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf and Gollum, and recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent'. The Lord of the Rings' trilogy follows these characters and introduces many more as they strive to protect Middle-Earth from the dark forces of Sauron, who plots to destroy all that is good in their magical realm.
