I read this in one go. Thus only one review of the complete work.

I liked this very much. Both stories (Sauron's and Aragorn's) were well-written. Plots and such meshed nicely.

I loved that you started the tale with Sauron and ended it with him.

Nicely done!

PS - Soothed my heart that the Orcs were returning to their former state. Bravo. Great idea!

This has been a fascinating story and you used the prompts in a very imaginative way.I would have liked more at the end about Aragorn and Arwen. The story would benefit from a native English editor as you occasionally mix up our complicated tenses, which even we struggle with sometimes.
I liked your characterisation of Sauron and the way in which he redeems himself.

Now, this IS satisfying! He had found his true calling now, and is actually undoing what he and his master did to them! Excellent! No wonder Mandos wants him to stay! Again, excellent!

Enjoyed the series. There are a few where it's obvious English is your second language, but you did far, far better than I'd expect to do in Spanish, which is the one language I know well enough to read in, but I fear not to write anything of depth in.

Wonderful conclusion to the stories of both Aragorn and Sauron in this exchange.

Viable reasons to do as he has.

He seeks forgiveness in search of redemption, does he? Good. I hope it is what he most needs. He has changed with most of his evil destroyed with the Ring.

Bless Ghan-buri-Ghan! And love that final thought ere Aragorn returns to his body! Yes, let's not let the missus know we were less than careful of ourself! Heh!

LarnerReviewed Chapter: 54 on 8/13/2012
Hmm. Now, this is truly intriguing, that Sauron should find a way to suddenly start many deeds that should perhaps have been done years ago by sending Aragorn this way instead of THAT.

His own sacrifice worked to the good of all in the end, and has brought him face to face with his mortal friend's descendant. A beautiful meeting.
