The Silmarillion is set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. It consists of five parts, the first being Ainulindalë, which deals with the formation of Eä or known as the world, the universe. Valaquenta, the second part describes Valar and Maiar, gods with the supernatural powers of Eä. The sequel is Quenta Silmarillion, which is also the main part of the story, a millennium of events that occurred during the First Age, including the war for the Silmarils. The fourth part, Akallabeth, deals with the fall of the kingdom of Númenor which took place during the Second Age. The final part is The Ring of Power and the Third Age, which summarizes the events leading up to the Lord of the Rings novels.
The Silmarillion Audiobook, along with other posthumous collections of Tolkien’s stories, such as Unfinished Tales and The History of Middle-earth series, form a comprehensive yet somewhat incomplete narrative that describes the universe within which The Hobbit Audiobook and The Lord of the Rings Audiobooks take place.
