In the fifth, and final, novel in the Chronicles of Prydain, the final battle with the Death Lord takes place-and all the old buddies from previous books come out to play war. In many ways, this book is darker than the earlier ones. Although it is still appropriate for any child who is capable of reading it (fourth or fifth grade), it may be scary for very young kids who are being read to. Despite this, The High King was the best of the Prydain books. It taught good moral values, was cute and sweet, and never crossed the level of violence that some more recent children's books achieve. Definitely a classic of children's fantasy!

This book is about a man named Taran. When Taran was a baby, Dallben (a wizard) saved him from a war. The story takes place in the land named Prydain. After a huntsman from the land of the dead kills a king and takes the sword named Dyrnwyn Taran and his friends build an army to battle the death lord. The army travels through rough terrain and arrives at the land of the dead. Taran finds Dyrnwyn and kills the deathless cauldron born. After that he slays the Lord of Death and becomes High King of Prydain. Tarans friends from the house of don have to move back to their homeland. Princess Eilonwy stays with Taran though. I give this book four stars. It doesn’t tell you the background of the characters and how they met. Also the characters talk a lot so it’s mostly dialogue. I recommend you read the previous books in the series so you can know the characters better.

The final book in the Chronicles of Prydain brings together all of the characters we've grown to know and love over the entire series. Arawn is on the move and ready to take back the sword Dyrnwyn. Taran and his band must make sure this doesn't happen. This volume is much darker and sadder than the rest of the series, but I found it to be necessary. It is a truly a wonderful book on its own, encapsulating all that I loved about the entire series.

Definetely one of the best authors ever! He is timeless and ageless and anyone who does not like even one of his books (but you really should like all of them) should go and get their head examined! Llyod Alexander is..... THE HIGH KING OF FANTASY!!!!!!! See what I did there!! P.S. Do not get me wrong Tolkien is a HIGH KING to!!!!!!

The Prydain series makes one fall in love with Wales and all its myths. I read this as a child and still loved it after rereading it with my kids (the 2006 publishing date is not when it was first published). That gold seal on the cover still means something.
