Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest. They have lost the wizard Gandalf in a battle in the Mines of Moria. And Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. Now Frodo and Sam continue the journey alone down the great river Anduin—alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
