The Book of Three

Our rating: ****

The first book of the Prydain Chronicles is off and running. Running in the form of the oracular pig, Hen Wen, who has mysteriously run away. Taran, the assistant pig-keeper, sets out to find her and also to seek for adventure. On the way, he meets Prince Gwydion, the war leader of High King Math, and tries to assist the prince in his battle against Death Lord Arawn’s chief warrior, The Horned King.

I could have told you more in the summary, but that was such a nice ending and I might have given things away. Ah well, (sigh) such is life. Hopefully, now you’ll want to read it. This book is great. A classic. Adventure, captures and, of course, daring escapes. This is a great beginning to an addicting series.
