An omnibus edition of The Iron Tower trilogy.
Dennis L. McKiernan's Mithgar books are among the most beloved in all of fantasy fiction. The Iron Tower includes the first three novels set in the world of Mithgar – collected in a single volume for the first time – with an all-new introduction by the author.
The Dark Tide
Four thousand years ago the evil Modru fled from the ruins of his defeat in the Great War of the Ban. But now the hordes of the master of darkness are returning, sweeping over an unprepared land. And the call goes out to all the races of Mithgar to stem the dark tide...
Shadows of Doom
The battle rages as Mithgar's bravest – Elves, Warrows, Dwarves, and Men – struggle to keep the flicker of hope alive amid the shadows of doom...
The Darkest Day
In a perilous gamble, the meager forces of the High-King race to the impregnable Iron Tower in one last, desperate bid to save Mithgar from an endless age of terror as the final day – The Darkest Day – draws nigh...

The Iron Tower Omnibus consists of the first three Mithgar books (The Dark Tide, Shadows of Doom and The Darkest Day). I know that many people think that these three books are based upon The Lord of the Rings and they're almost right about that. If I'm not mistaken, Dennis L. McKiernan wanted to write a sequel to The Lord of the Rings, but he wasn't allowed to do so, so he "re-created" Middle-earth in The Iron Tower trilogy. These first books aren't very good, but the later books are enjoyable and fascinating fantasy books.
