This is actually (or at least meant by the author as) a single novel, but it published into three volumes, namely The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. While The Hobbit is a stand alone novel, of which story is the background of the events found in the trilogy.
The story is about of hobbit named Frodo Baggins who unluckily inherited a magic ring, The One Ring, from his Uncle Bilbo Baggins. The ring was once belonged to a powerful evil and a wanna-be-world-single-ruler, Sauron. Some hundred years before Frodo's time, Sauron and his orc army were defeated by the alliance force of Middle Earth (the elves, dwarves, and humans). Although Sauron no longer has bodily existence, he is not dead yet and with some helps, he is ready to make his "come back" and all he needs is that One Ring.
To prevent Sauron from claiming that ring, Frodo has to destroy it in the crater of Mount Doom, Sauron's homeland. To make that journey slightly possible, Frodo is accompanied by the Fellowship of the Ring, consist of representations from every race inhabits Middle Earth, such as Gandalf the wizard, Aragorn the ranger (and prince), Legolas the elf, Gimli the Dwarf, and some others. Along the way, Frodo meets the previous bearer of the ring, Gollum, who becomes his guide to reach Mordor. And during that journey, the evilness of One Ring slowly but surely begins consuming Frodo. While at the same time, the rest of the Fellowship members, after got separated from Frodo the ring bearer, are holding their ground in a massive war against the orcs of Saruman and also the army of Mordor.
