The Dangerous Truth   

'It is not difficult to imagine the peculiar excitement and joy that one would feel, if any specially beautiful fairy-story were found to be... true.'

J. R. R. Tolkien, On Fairy Stories

'Crystal turned the Tolkien letter over but there was no more. The second sheet was missing. She up-ended the envelope just in case - nothing. She did the same to the duffle bag and something fell out. A ring. A large plain gold ring.'

An elf is educated as a human. She loves Tolkien's stories and is an expert on his works. The Great Ring falls into her possession and it is her task to bear it to its makers and prevent war. On the way she must evade Black Riders and deal with orcs, and worse. The problem is: how much of what happens is real?
The Ring is powerful, shaping the world according to its wearer. Is Crystal an elf who thinks she is human? Or a very ordinary girl who longs to be an elf? Meanwhile, unknown to her, a new Fellowship is formed to pursue her and save the world: the Ring must NOT be destroyed!

Readers' responses to P R Jennings' first novel, 'Yeats and the Secret Masters'

"P. R. Jennings has done something quite amazing and innovative here - a completely original concept, a compelling, fast-paced narrative, unforgettable characters, a gripping plot that constantly takes the reader by surprise and a convincing, atmospheric world in which the whole seductive ensemble is set. I loved it. Highly recommended."

Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods and Entangled.
