    Story
    "Budding Romance and Adventure"

    With each book, Taran matures and so does the story. This time Taran is becoming aware of his feelings towards a certain young lady. The reader continues to find voices for all the new characters in a satisfying way.

    Story
    "Harry Potter, Percy Jackson Fans, This is For You!"

    This is the 3rd book in the Chronicles of Prydain, and I highly recommend all of them. If you love great adventures, well drawn lovable characters, and profound life lessons, you will love Prydain. Lloyd Alexander creates the world of Prydain loosely based on Welsh mythology. They are excellent excellent books! For those who have listened to Harry Potter, James Langton does as good a job as Jim Dale. It was wonderful to listen to him bring Taran and his friends to life. This is a book written for younger readers (middle school and late elementary) but high schoolers and adults will take much from it also. Do yourself a favor--read these books!

    My 8 yr old son, my 5 yr old daughter, my wife and I all loved this and the other Chronicles of Prydain books. James Langton's narration is fantastic.
