The High King (Chronicles of Prydain, Bk 5)
The High King - Chronicles of Prydain, Bk 5 Author:Lloyd Alexander "In this magnificent finale to the chronicles of Prydain, the whole land is the stage for the ultimate clash between the forces of good and evil which determines the fate of Prydain and of Taran, the Assistant Pig-Keeper who wanted to be a hero." The fifth book in the series.
"Greater, more disastrous, and demanding more courage are the battles into which Taran leads his followers against Arawn Death-Lord.... The book has the philosophical depth and overtones of great fantasy." --The Horn Book
A satisfying finale to a great series. Taran truly grows in strength and character throughout the Chronicles of Prydain. I highly recommend starting at the beginning, but this one is the best in the series.
An interesting series basedon Welsh folklore. For those who know the series - Taran the Assistant Pig Keeper is really into adventure this time. For those who don't know the series - This is #5 and well worth reading.
