Publisher Description

The High King by Lloyd Alexander

When the most powerful weapon in the land of Prydain falls into the hands of Arawn, Lord of the Land of Death, Taran and Prince Gwydion rally an army to stand up to the dark forces.

The companions' last and greatest quest is also their most perilous. The biting cold of winter is upon them, adding to the danger they already face. Their journey, fraught with battle and bloodshed, ends at the very portal of Arawn's stronghold. There, Taran is faced with the most crucial decision of his life.

In this breathtaking Newbery Medal-winning conclusion to The Chronicles of Prydain, the faithful friends face the ultimate war between good and evil.

“I hate that I have to give this book only three stars when the final chapter was very good. But although it ended well and contains a fair balance of satisfaction and realism, it neglects to avoid repeating the telling of great lessons within very simple events. The third act feels not rushed, per say, but underhyped. And the path taken to get there isn’t sufficient for an entire third act. All in all, I enjoyed this book for its charming characters and satisfying ending, but not for the lack of a bold conclusion.”
