I found the portrayals of key characters moving as well as the stories surrounding the protagonist Taran and his essential core of friends and supporters. A great finale to the series. It was a hundred percent worth reading. View all 5 comments. Let me begin by saying that I very seldom give 5s. To me, a book that gets a 5 is a book that changed my life and a book I have to reread over and over again. This book is a true 5 for me. I can't even count how many times I have read it and I have loved it each and every time I have read it.
I just love the way Lloyd Alexander writes. He doesn't get bogged down in flowery language and instead uses a minimum of words to somehow convey a perfect description. I love the character development of Ta Let me begin by saying that I very seldom give 5s. I love the character development of Taran. He really grows up and matures from the beginning of the series and the end.
Eilonwy is one of my favorite female characters ever. She's strong and smart and funny and independent. Gurgi is so cute with his crunchings and munchings. Fflewddur Fflam is funny and of course I love Gwydion. Arawn is a great villain too. Everything fits together so perfectly and all the loose ends are tied up.
I could go on and on about how wonderful this book is, but really you need to experience the whole wonderful series for yourself. Every time I read it I sob like a baby. Truly one of the best fantasy novels ever written. Taran is summoned to be a war leader alongside his friend, Prince Gwydion of Don. The Chronicles of Prydain kept getting better with each volume - that is until I read this final instalment.
I did like it, but not as much as the middle instalments. Both the beginning and ending felt rather rushed - the book could have done well with an extra pages! Unlike all previous volumes, this one picks up right at the end of the fourth instalment. Taran just arrives home when war is upon them almost immediately. What this book did really well was to tie all the books together.
I loved how Taran's role as a war leader would not have worked without all the friendships he made during his wanderings of the fourth volume. In addition, several bits and pieces from all previous books were picked up again. Almost all characters, who hadn't died in previous volumes, made a comeback in this one! And yet, not all of them live to see the end of it. Putting Harry Potter aside, I have rarely read a final volume in which so many characters died.
There was a death in nearly every chapter. And those who did not have to say farewell through death had to say farewell at the end of the story nonetheless; the majority of the cast is to leave Prydain and journey to a different country. I shall not spoil anything by saying who stays and who doesn't - but it was almost more painful than the actual deaths. Even more so because only a few remain in Prydain and I am very sorry to say that my favourite character is not one of them. While the beginning and ending seemed awfully rushed - the middle was very well written.
One could feel the characters' struggles and crumbling hopes as their friends fell one after the other. Although I found this to be a good and deserving conclusion to the chronicles - it did feature the most annoying creature ever: He was so irritating that it dragged down the quality of the story. It was simply unpleasant to read about him.
At least he only has major appearances in the final volume! All in all, I loved The Chronicles of Prydain! It is very much a character-driven story and I love so many of them.
Lloyd Alexander was a kind, simple man with a passion for mythology, especially Welsh lore. These books began with an exploration of ancient stories, and grew into what I believe to be the best children's literature out there. I still read them now and again, just because they move me so. Alexander manages a rather brilliant balance of humour and sorrow--something rarely found in books written for young people.
His characters are lovable, entertaining, and real, despite their fantastical setting Lloyd Alexander was a kind, simple man with a passion for mythology, especially Welsh lore. His characters are lovable, entertaining, and real, despite their fantastical setting. Altogether a set of amazing stories--ones that I love dearly. One of the very best series I have read. It is an interpretation of the Mabinogin welsh myths.
Ah once again I come to the end of this tale having listened to the excellent work of the Audible crew. I was not expecting just how much book withdrawl I would be going through after finishing this series. The ending is just so sentimental and emotional that I started tearing up, and I absolutely love this series with my entire heart. It's got tons of action, it ties up a ton of loose threads, the bad guys lose and the good guys win You can't go wrong with it.
I'm extremely glad I can enjoy this series as an adult. It's not just your run-of-the-mill "coming of age" tale. It's so much more special, and it makes you feel so many feelings. Wow, wow, and wow! I thought the 4th book was the best, but that was before I read this one! What a wonderful book and series, strewn with true heroes and wisdom for them and readers to absorb and live out. Less preaching than Wanderer, even darker than Cauldron, keep your hankies handy.
This is always a slightly rough reread as I inevitably end up bawling on no fewer than five separate instances. Took me a little longer than usual as I kept having to stop lest I end up crying on the bus. When I got to the end of this series, despite the fact that I am over 40, and have a family and many responsibilities, I really wanted to set off on an adventure and become a heroine A perfect set of books for those times in life when you need a little bump of get-up-and-go Medal Winner Wonderful ending to an excellent series.
This ties up all the loose ends and storyboard, without feeling contrived or letting that drag the story at all. Love these characters, and am very satisfied. I think the closing paragraph is one of the best ever. In The High King, the story comes full circle and Taran and his friends must once again face Arawn and his Cauldron-born. In The Book of Three, Taran dreams of being a hero. Now, many adventures and wanderings later, Taran knows more about what being a hero entails and he feels the weight of the quest a lot more acutely. In many ways, this quest is similar to the one in The Book of Three, but the difference lies primarily within Taran.
While important characters have died in previous books, the body count for characters I remember and like is probably the highest here. I really loved this series! It is everything a fantasy series should be - filled with related characters, magical, giving us hope, but at the same time not shying away from the darker side of life.
This review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile It felt grand at some parts and sad at others. But once I finished this series, which I have really wanted to finish for a long time now, I felt like I missed the books. The ending was kind of like J. R Tolkien's " The Return of the King". But I must say that I find J. R Tolkien's books far better than Alexander's. So I have now finished this book and with it the entire series.
What can I say? I read the series in chronological order but there were huge time gaps between the times I would read each book. It was when I read the first book. Then I read the next two books three years later. And now I have finally finished the series.
Taran: der Fürst des Todes
I am glad that I finished the book while I am still young. I highly recommend this series to young people below eighteen years old. This is when they could appreciate the books best. Children will find kings and princesses, grand battles, strange adventures, and without giving spoilers for "The High King", quite a lot of sadness. But aside from all the things I mentioned, most of which are already enough to make a lot of reluctant readers interested, I need to tell them that this book, along with its predecessors, carry great lessons that they need to learn.
These are stories about courage, growing up, and learning. Many people will be very pleased to find these themes in Lloyd Alexander's children's series. I was pleased by the books. I hope other people will be as well. This is the award-winning conclusion to the Chronicles of Prydain. When the magical sword of Prince Gwydion falls into the hand of the evil Death Lord, Taran and his friends face many dangers to find it and stop the forces of darkness. Taran has grown much throughout the series. No loger is he the rash youth he was, but instead a shrewd war leader who only longs for peace.
He has finally realized his feelings for a certain princess, as well, but only time will tell if the two could end up togeth This is the award-winning conclusion to the Chronicles of Prydain. He has finally realized his feelings for a certain princess, as well, but only time will tell if the two could end up together. Full of danger and excitement, we get to see the fates of all of the characters depicted in the story. A fine conclusion to the tale. The first four books of the series all lead up to this, and the payoff is terrific.
The character development feels earned, the darkness of war is balanced by the truly happy ending no, I don't consider this a spoiler--would you think a series like this would end unhappily? A wonderful end to a wonderful series. Unlike modern YA series, this one stuck the landing. It finished with a jolt of serious surprise and deep satisfaction. Overall the series is a gem that I'm excited to share with my own children in a few years.
This was such a good series! It was also definitely a very satisfying ending to a remarkable collection of fantasy, easily loved by children and adults alike. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The saddest part of the book is when I read about the Sons of Dawn and how many died my they rest in peace.
Yet the best part of the book is when Taran rallies the people of prydain to rise against Arawn. I suggest this to readers that love a good ending, and lots of action. Recommended to Devyn by: The fifth and final book of the Prydain Chronicles series is every bit as good as the others and is a fitting conclusion.
Events and characters from the first four books come together as the companions begin a final mission that goes from desperate to hopeless. There are many obstacles in their path, and so much real loss. The land is at war, and major characters are killed along the way. But even when things are at their worst, the characters keep their humanity and personality. The sorrow in t The fifth and final book of the Prydain Chronicles series is every bit as good as the others and is a fitting conclusion.
The sorrow in this book is so deep because the characters are so well-drawn as real people. But there is triumph, too, and it's well-earned, because it comes from the choices made by characters who we have grown to care about. Less charming than others in the series. Actual rating; more like 2. Whereas the first two books in The Chronicles of Prydain seemed to sorely focus on the completion of a quest, this book had a bit of a romantic twist to it.
I really liked Eilonwy in the two previous books; she took initiative, she was outspoken and no one told her what to do. In this book, The Castle of Llyr , Elionwy has somehow been reduced to a damsel-in-distress-character who are told, by all the men in the book, what to do and what is expected of her and she pretty much just goes along with it.. I was not overly fond of this notion that the only female main character now has to learn how to be a Princess and therefore cannot join the men on their far more exciting quests.
But this book was written in … Perhaps this plot development is a product of its time. I really hope Eilonwy will be present in the next book! This someone else is a Prince and Taran quickly convinces himself that in these cases birth rank is all that really matters and a flood of self-pity ensues -. Talking, talking, running, then more talking.
I liked this one better than any of the others so far probably because Gurgi was less prominent with his munching and crunching and all that , but still the thing I have not liked about these books is that they are mostly characters talking to one another while they travel from one place to another. There are times I enjoyed passages in the books.
Often the victories seem cheaply won, usually a lot of build up with a lot of conversation , then everything gets solved in a flash sometimes literally a flash. I really did, because, oracular pig!! And Princess Eilonwy really is a great character. Maybe this series didn't age well. Maybe it was written for a simpler time. Eilonwy is growing up as fast as Taran, but since she is a princess, Dallben has decided it's for the best that she get more of an education in royalty than Caer Dallben can provide. Taran, downcast, nonetheless is determined to accompany her to her new home, where surprises of more than one sort await.
When danger threatens, will an Assistant Pig-Keeper be enough to save a princess? Or will it fall to the dashing, clumsy, and completely irresponsible prince? Taran is just discovering he might ha Eilonwy is growing up as fast as Taran, but since she is a princess, Dallben has decided it's for the best that she get more of an education in royalty than Caer Dallben can provide. Taran is just discovering he might have more than feelings of friendship for Eilonwy, though his ineptness with words makes it impossible to get out anything resembling the sort to Eilonwy herself.
And his inability to communicate with her causes plenty of problems. Compared to the first two books, however, Taran has grown up quite a bit.
Taran: der Fürst des Todes by Lloyd Alexander (5 star ratings)
He's no longer running headlong into whatever fancy takes him at the time, though he's still very impulsive. But he's learned a bit of wisdom, and a bit of patience, which Prince Rhun tries most grievously. Prince Rhun serves as a good foil to both Taran and Gwydion. Prince to Prince, Gwydion's responsibility and competence both make a poor showing out of Rhun. And Prince to Pig-Keeper, Taran looks positively level-headed and self-controlled. My favorite new character was Llyan.
Fflewddur has found an imposing critic indeed.
Like the previous books, the prose is spare and the story relatively simple. As nice as it is to see some character growth in Taran, none of the characters are particularly surprising; Maggs is perhaps the most shallow of the lot. The world still feels very small, possibly because everyone can travel on foot to most places in only a few days or less. By now, readers who have stuck with the series know exactly what they're getting in terms of story and character.
New readers may want to pick up the previous books, but this will stand well enough alone. I haven't found anything to really dislike, but I haven't found anything that really grabs me either. I rate this book Neutral. Like in much of the series, there were a few things that bothered me about this book. It really doesn't seem like the author really gave Princess Eilonwy very much to do. In this book, I suppose the author tried to make her more interesting, but she just ended up really weird and bratty.
She also didn't really get all that much to do. For most of the book, she ended up the damsel who got spirited away by some evil enchantress and needs to be saved by her friends, especially the guy who is crushi Like in much of the series, there were a few things that bothered me about this book. For most of the book, she ended up the damsel who got spirited away by some evil enchantress and needs to be saved by her friends, especially the guy who is crushing on her, Taran.
She often appears to be viewed very much from the outside. We don't seem to get a closer glimpse of her thought processes like we do for some of the other characters. In this book, every turn in the plot seems very pivoted by some random action scenes where the boys chop stuff up and swear on their honour, all to ultimately get to the princess to save her. Even the thought process of the other characters and the plot seem to lack a lot of depth and complexity. Whatever is wrong with me that everyone seems to like this and I don't seem to appreciate it. Maybe I'm not getting something.
Anyway, maybe I really should be more more lenient. It's from the 60's after all. What exactly did I expect. This wasn't the strongest entry in the series, especially coming off The Book of Three and The Black Cauldron, but it wasn't boring and featured more character development for our adventurous Assistant Pig-Keeper. Lloyd Alexander is brilliant about continuously putting Taran in uncomfortable situations that force growth. Bringing back Achren and giving her story some closure was a good move, too. What I didn't like: There's very little of Eilonwy in the story.
She's one of my favorite characters in this series and the story had a limited female presence without her. The story also heavily featured the clumsy, somewhat useless Prince Rhun who was sometimes amusing, sometimes exasperating. The pacing felt slower and the buildup to the climax less effective than in the last two books, but it was still an enjoyable enough fantasy read, and I'm looking forward to finishing this series. As the two star rating indicates, this book was OK.
The author overuses a conspicuous plot device to illustrate the nobility of character in the good guys. There are multiple instances of characters offering to sacrifice their own lives to save their companions. In each case, I thought this was very premature, since no real concerted effort to solve the situation in another way had been put forth.
This series would likely be As the two star rating indicates, this book was OK. This series would likely be good for very young readers. The simple plot and the simple characters motivations would be easy to follow. After the first two books in the series, I wasn't really that interested to continue. But, I have all the books, and they are so short that I figure I will see it through.
Reading this book probably took about as much time as it takes to watch a movie, and I have sat through movies that I got less out of than this book. I remember liking book 5 "The High King" when I read it in grade school. So I have some desire to finish the entire series. OK, I have to be honest, this was a case where reading chidren's literature as an adult didn't really work.
I've been charmed by the first two books of this fantasy series, but this third book felt inert and redundant. The heart of this series is the interaction between Taran and Eilonwy, and since she spends most of this book as an object of affection or the victim of a kidnapping, that doesn't happen here. The book needed a bit of that girl power to make it work. Instead, we're left with the an OK, I have to be honest, this was a case where reading chidren's literature as an adult didn't really work. There's not much of a real sense of danger and the same jokes for an adult reader grow tired.
The bit with the giant cat is entertaining and Alexander puts together a decent ending, but this book felt like weak filler compared to the first two entries. I had mentioned them in the past to my daughter and she's been wanting to read them for a while. So the whole family decided to read them. Unfortunately, they were not nearly as good as I remembered. The stories were pretty simplistic and childish with not a lot of detail. The characters were one dimensional with repetitive descriptions based off a single characteristic.
A couple characters actually die, but it didn't matter because I didn't really care about them because they were not fleshed out. The plotting was really simplistic. It just jumps from one issue to the next with issues miraculously resolving themselves. It was fun reading with the family and the Welsh mythology inspiration was interesting, but overall it wasn't a great read. If this is the kiddie version of Lord of Rings, here Alexander does something unique. He gives an entire book to the girl.

This cover is closest to the one I'm reading. Taran is fighting a giant cat, but not this exact cover. The story is pretty fun in a dated way. Taran is more capable, but just about as impetuous.
