In the Hands of the Enemy ~ by meckinock

When Aragorn is waylaid by bandits while racing to answer an urgent summons from Gandalf, he gains an unexpected ally whose loyalties are suspect. With Gandalf and Halbarad in pursuit, can Aragorn discern friend from foe and escape the hands of the Enemy before he is forced to reveal the secret of the Shire?

A place to find the best stories about Aragorn in any of his many roles -- Estel, Thorongil, Aragorn, etc. I'm just getting started so expect to see a lot more stories here.

Why This Story?

What's not to like? Aragorn in peril, great OCs, and a loyal and witty Halbarad. One of the best stories in the genre.
