The Fellowship of the Ring is the first part of a trilogy which is about fighting to save a country from evil. In the Fellowship, a magical ring is bequeathed to a young man from the Hobbit race, Frodo. The ring has the power to make the wearer invisible, but it also has more sinister powers, such as corrupting the mind of the wearer, and connecting to the mind of the evil Sauron. Gandalf, the wizard friend of Frodo, tells him he has to bring the ring to the elf city for safe keeping. Along the way, Frodo joins up with 3 hobbit friends, two humans, an elf, a dwarf, and Gandalf to form the Fellowship of the Ring. The Fellowship must travel to a volcano to destroy the ring and save their country from disaster.
