The Return of the King Overview

The Return of the King is the final book in Tolkien’s trilogy The Lord of the Rings. The story
opens as Gandalf and Pippin are headed east to Minas Tirith, picking up immediately where the
previous story, The Two Towers, left off. In Minas Tirith, the two meet Denethor, and Pippin
offers him his sword in service of Gondor out of appreciation for the sacrifice Boromir made for
the Hobbits.
