The Chronicles of Prydain – Book 2
Newbery Honor Book
In the land of Prydain, evil is never far away. Arawn, Lord of the Land of Death, has been building an army of dark warriors to take over Prydain, and the only way to stop him is to destroy the Black Cauldron he uses to create his dreaded soldiers.
Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, and his loyal companions must journey deep into Arawn’s domain to destroy the Black Cauldron. For each of them, the quest has a special meaning. For Taran, it is a glorious opportunity to use his first sword in battle. But war requires a sacrifice greater than he’d ever imagined . . .
This is a great book, just as good as the first. With the return of our hero’s from the Book of Three, this deals with larger stakes then just the Horned King.
