Avec " Le Retour du Roi " s'achèvent dans un fracas d'apocalypse les derniers combats de la guerre de l'Anneau. Tandis que le continent se couvre de ténèbres, annonçant pour le peuple des Hobbits l'aube d'une ère nouvelle, Frodon poursuit son entreprise. Alors qu'il n'a pu franchir la Porte Noire, il se demande comment atteindre le Mont du Destin. Peut-être est-il trop tard : le Seigneur des Ténèbres mobilise ses troupes. Les Rohirrim n'ont plus le temps d'en finir avec le traître assiégé dans l'imprenable tour d'Orthanc ; ils doivent se rassembler pour faire face à l'ennemi. Tentant une fois de plus sa chance, Frodon passe par le Haut Col, où il sera livré à l'abominable Arachné. Survivra-t-il à son dangereux périple à travers le Pays Noir ?
La dernière partie du Seigneur des Anneaux voit la fin de la quête de Frodo en Terre du Milieu. Le Retour du Roi raconte la stratégie désespérée de Gandalf face au Seigneur des Anneaux, jusqu’à la catastrophe finale et au dénouement de la grande Guerre où s’illustrent Aragorn et ses compagnons, Gimli le Nain, Legolas l’Elfe, les Hobbits Merry et Pippin, tandis que Gollum est appelé à jouer un rôle inattendu aux côtés de Frodo et de Sam au Mordor, le seul lieu où l’Anneau de Sauron peut être détruit. Cette nouvelle traduction prend en compte la dernière version du texte anglais, les indications laissées par J. R. R. Tolkien à l’intention des traducteurs et les découvertes permises par les publications posthumes proposées par Christopher Tolkien. Ce volume contient 15 illustrations d’Alan Lee, entièrement renumérisées, d’une qualité inégalée, ainsi que des cartes (en couleur) de la Terre du Milieu.
