The One Ring: Fellowship of the New Alliance
Thranduil rules over a people under threat. His subjects may dance and feast in the forest, forgetting the Shadow that hangs over them, but Thranduil cannot allow himself to forget. He knows first-hand the suffering and sorrow inflicted by the Enemy, as he went to war with Gil-galad and his father, and saw many Elves and Men die in battle. Together with the secret havens of Rivendell and Lórien and the western realm of Lindon, his is one of the last Elvish kingdoms left in Middle-earth. Thranduil will not let it fall.
