So after following the events in Middle-earth with Morgoth and the Sindar for a while, it's time to return to Aman to take up the story with the Valar and the elves there.
If you remember back in #195, Fëanor had just learned that his father Finwë, high king of the Noldor, had been murdered by Morgoth, and he rushed off distraught into the night. His sons went after him, worried about what he might do. We can assume they were missing for some time...
Also, note that Fëanor is still officially banished from Tirion by the law of the Valar, because he drew a sword on his (half-) brother.
