The earth quaked as the power of the White Council clashed with that of Dol Guldur. The Ringwraiths’ screams filled the air as flames leapt toward the sky, nearly drowned by the howling of the wind.

Then all at once it ceased. Some great shadow lifted and vanished from the tower, and the Nazgûl scattered. The forest seemed to heave a sigh of relief, and the sun shone brightly again. Gandalf leaned against his staff, frowning as Narya’s heat faded.

“That was too easy,” he said to Saruman, who waved him off.

“He is weak.”

“Yes, but not that weak...”
