I liked this one better than the first, the action started right off, there was a quest and work to get to, and off they went. I found the story more interesting as well, and in general, as I listened, I could see in the story the stuff of Disney movies - a dwarf that can turn invisible, a trio of amusing enchantresses, an underdog hero. I can still find echoes of Middle Earth and the flavor of the Lord of the Rings, but it feels an homage, and there exist in them both elements of great stories, truth, goodness, and beauty.
So far, this series is shaping up to be a good starting point from which to delve into a realm of fantasy with a younger child. ( )

In which Taran sets out to put an end to an army of undead grotesques, and can't seem to avoid a heck of a lot of familiar faces.

Picking up where The Book of Three left of, the second novel in the Chronicles of Prydain series is overall a better experience. Alexander's prose still sometimes seems to skip through entire sequences at breathtaking speed, and characters are prone to overtly state elements of the author's mission statement, but - as I said in my review of the first book - that is only because the Chronicles are that rare type of children's fiction meant only for children, and not older readers too.

The world of Prydain is further expanded here, and all the characters are back. Taran gets a greater emotional journey here, although most of the other characters are given short shrift in favour of (admittedly interesting) new ones. In some cases that's quite sad - Eilonwy deserves more than to be an outspoken follower, and there's more to the bard's tale that can surely be examined. Others, however, seem like they could become quite one-note if they mysteriously appear on every journey just to provide another voice. We'll see. I remain optimistic about this series because, once you except the obvious limitations of Alexander's prose, it's a captivating and easy-to-read novel. My favourite element of the first book remains: Alexander is a staunchly moral writer, and the lessons Taran and his gang learn are always important and honest. Yet, he's refreshingly mature. The fates of numerous heroes and villains are often truly tragic or horrific. This is a novel about going from the innocence of childhood into the dark complexities of the real world - and the fact that it creates a world which is genuinely real is a treat.

As a sequel it more than lives up to the first novel, and overall The Black Cauldron is a success. I look forward to finding out what happens next to Taran, Eilonwy, Gurgi, and the gang. ( )

Another great installment in the Chronicles of Prydain, I actually liked this one more then the first. This was all about the search for the black cauldron so many new characters where introduced and while I was ultimately wrong about who was the villain in this as they aren't exactly present until the end I will say it took me by surprise since it was a character I completely forgot about, and all the signs pointed to some one else, I should have been able to catch that bit of trickery in the writing but I didn't haha.

I will say this one had a greater melancholy tone this time around, from Taran wallowing in his self pity a lot and there being an actual death on the good side of the story and the end with Islimach was shocking to be honest. The whole story just kind of hung around this sad melancholy feel but it worked for the tale and I like that Alexander wasn't afraid to put death in the tale, it made it feel believable that these people are on a dangerous journey in their fight against Arawn.

It of course has a happy ending but not with out tragedy before hand, and once again it wrapped up nicely and stands well on its own. ( )

Alexander's best work, by far. Which is probably why I didn't get how great it was when I first read it. But I relish the (albeit few) chances that I have to read it again. The first book is needed to establish the characters. This book is a turning point that ultimately sets up the future. You don't really need the following three. They're just a bonus. ( )

The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander is one of the series I re-read every few years because it is just that good. It is a series that builds beautifully on itself so that you remain captivated to the very end. I like that the characters are not perfect and that they learn and grow throughout the story. Lloyd Alexander has a writing style that I really enjoy. ( )

The Newbery-winning fantasy series now available in gorgeous new paperback editions! SinceThe Book of Threewas first published in 1964, young readers have been enthralled by the adventures of Taran the Assistant Pig-Keeper and his quest to become a hero. Taran is joined by an engaging cast of characters that includes Eilonwy, the strong-willed and sharp-tongued princess; Fflewddur Fflam, the hyperbole-prone bard; the ever-faithful Gurgi; and the curmudgeonly Doli all of whom have become involved in an epic struggle between good and evil that shapes the fate of the legendary land of Prydain. Released over a period of five years, Lloyd Alexander s beautifully written tales not only captured children s imaginations but also garnered the highest critical praise. The Black Cauldronwas a Newbery Honor Book, and the final volume in the chronicles,The High King, crowned the series by winning the Newbery Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Henry Holt is proud to present this classic series in a new, redesigned paperback format. The jackets feature stunning art by acclaimed fantasy artist David Wyatt, giving the books a fresh look for today s generation of young fantasy lovers. The companion book of short stories,The Foundlingis also available in paperback at this time. In their more than thirty years in print, the Chronicles of Prydain have become the standard of excellence in fantasy literature for children.

Five enchanting books comprise the "Chronicles of Prydain" by Alexander. Prydain is a land with heroes and legends drawn from Welsh mythology. In TheBlack Cauldron, book 2 of the series, Taran takes further steps toward manhood. He must help destroy the vessel from which the fearsome Cauldron Born warriors spring to march with the evil lord Awren. The companions join with him again on this new adventure. Wondrous magic and a very arrogant young nobleman punctuate this gripping tale. The princess Eilonwy has been growing like a weed. Other books in the Chronicles include The Castle of Llyr, Taran Wanderer, The High King and The Book of Three. 1965, Henry Holt and Bantam Doubleday Dell, $16.96 and $4.99. Ages 10 up.

The following pages are intended, hopefully, to do something more than continue the Chronicles of Prydain. "What happens next?" is always an urgent question, and this volume attempts to answer it, at least partially. Nevertheless, The Black Cauldron should stand as a chronicle in its own right. Certain matters previously hinted at are here revealed more fully; and, while extending the story, I have also tried to deepen it. [from the "Author's Note"]
Autumn had come too swiftly. In the northernmost realms of Prydain many trees were already leafless, and among the branches clung the ragged shapes of empty nests. To the south, across the river Great Avren, the hills shielded Caer Dallben from the winds, but even here the little farm was drawing in on itself. [from chapter 1, "The Council at Caer Dallben"]
