This fabulous conclusion to the Prydain Chronicles won the Newberry Award.
"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
Although written as a YA,this can certainly be enjoyed by adults as well :)
As a lover both of mythology and Arthuran legend, I was instantly enchanted by this series. While not a retelling of the Mabinogion, the Welsh legends are a strong influence, stemming from the time Alexander spent in Wales. It is a tale of rags to riches, a battle of coming of age, an epic of good and evil. Alexander weaves the tale with both humor and sorrow, his characters are real, and as all truly great heroes must be, flawed.
You needn't have read the first books to .enjoy this one, but your reading of The High King will be richer for it. I know. The High King was my introduction to the series. I loved it, promptly went to the library for the others, then read though in order, concluding with my second reading of The High King :)
