The Tale of Beren and Lúthien continues in the second thrilling part of this two-part series.  Beren and Lúthien set out to collect a Silmaril in order to marry and things go wrong from there. This tale of Middle-Earth is one of the most emotional from the Quenta Silmarillion.

One of the most moving stories from the First Age of Middle Earth is the legend of Beren and Lúthien. This two-part series, though, begins with the tale of the Silmarils and Melkor turned Morgoth before setting the stage for the romance of Beren and his Tinúviel. It also shows us the beginnings of Sauron before he declared himself Lord of the Rings. This tale is taken straight from the Quenta Silmarillion, The Lay of Leithian, and other sources, and is a story you won't want to miss.
