I read this to my kids and liked it just fine. Alexander's descriptions sometimes fall short (I suppose there are adjectives and nouns describing Glew, but I still just can't really picture him; I also can't really quite imagine Caer Colur), and I didn't love the resolution of the climax, but I suppose it's a stepping stone from a couple of good books to a couple more good books (the third and fifth books in the series won Newberry honors), so I'll forgive it. I really do like some of the characters (Flewddur, Eilonwy, Rhun, and Gurgi, whom I found irritating early in the series but who has really grown on me with his crashings and smashings), and I continue to enjoy the sort of clueless, exasperated interplay between Eilonwy and Taran and the successful running gag of the mere Assistant Pig-Keeper.

A less transcendent work than [b:The Black Cauldron|24784|The Black Cauldron (The Chronicles of Prydain #2)|Lloyd Alexander|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1405377996s/24784.jpg|1122077], this is nonetheless an enjoyable installment in the Prydain series that follows its model of action, character-driven humor and a few weighty choices. It suffers a little from the deliberate choice to sideline one of its main characters, who is sorely missed, but this is only a minor defect. ( )

In which Eilonwy is given a new opportunity, but all is built on sand...

The third book of The Chronicles of Prydain is my favourite thus far. Yet it's a far different beast from the previous two.

I was worried after The Black Cauldron that each book would just be a straightforward quest story reuniting all the same characters. Instead, I longed for a Narnia-esque series in which different aspects of Prydain could be explored. For this novel, we do get a reunion of the main characters, but most of the supporting cast take some time off, which creates a sense of difference here. Eilonwy is one of the series' strongest characters, and it's wonderful to discover her backstory - even if most of it was unknown even to the princess herself. Unfortunately, she's sidelined for most of the novel, but thankfully the young lady has so impressed us in previous books that we genuinely fear for her safety. (Sadly, the 'Big Bad' of the series is also sidelined for the most part, which is a shame since she has a great presence.)

Alexander uses the quest for Eilonwy to explore new parts of Prydain, and to add a lot of history and mysticism. It really works, and creates a sense that things are going to build nicely in the final two books. As always, he mixes a moral quest with haunting reality, and creates genuine obstacles for his characters to overcome.

Still, The Castle of Llyr bears a couple of the same flaws as its predecessors. I listen to a lot of audio plays, and the dialogue here is sometimes similar. Even when they're being chased by a giant mountain lion, the characters speak in lengthy, descriptive passages. Alexander could surely accomplish the same things with passages of prose instead! This is more annoying in this book than previous, because there are some interesting character developments that could have been more subtly handled. Taran is discovering his feelings for Eilonwy, and the new character of Prince Rhun turns out to have a lovely arc. I can see how it would work on television or film, whereas here the arc seems a bit deflated. He develops from fool to fool aware of his status to reluctant hero. Late in the book, it becomes clear that he's realising something exists between Eilonwy and Taran, even as he hopes to be her betrothed. Still, this all comes across in expository conversations, rather than anything more.

Ultimately, The Castle of Llyr is strong enough in its set pieces and quest narrative that it overcomes these weaknesses. The final setting - a half-sunken castle - is gorgeous, and I'll be very interested to see where Alexander takes these characters (both heroes and villains) as we head into the final two novels. There is a slowly growing tension here, but as yet nothing that suggests the series is coming to its end. I can easily see Prydain being further explored for many books to come. Still, I can't wait to experience the next one. ( )

After seeing The Black Cauldron I became totally obsessed with this series of books. ( )

In this chronicle of Prydain, following The Book of Three and The Black Cauldron, what befalls the heroine is as important, and perilous, as the hero's own quest. Princess Eilonwy of the red-gold hair does much more than face the unavoidable (and, in her view, absolutely necessary) ordeal of becoming a young lady. As Dallben, the old enchanter, warns: "For each of us comes a time when we must be more than what we are." And this holds true for princesses as well as for assistant pig-keepers. [from the "Author's Note"]
Eilonwy of the red-gold hair, the Princess Eilonwy Daughter of Angharad Daughter of Regat of the Royal House of Llyr, was leaving Caer Dallben. Dallben himself had so ordered it; and though Taran's heart was suddenly and strangely heavy, he knew there was no gainsaying the old enchanter's words. [from chapter 1, "Prince Rhun"]
