Peace reigns in Caer Dallben, where Taran works as Assistant Pig-Keeper, but evil threatens the rest of Prydain. The diabolical Arawn’s army grows every day, and his terrible warriors never die. They are born in the Black Cauldron from the stolen bodies of slain soldiers. If evil is to be defeated, the cauldron must be destroyed. Taran volunteers to travel to Arawn’s stronghold and assist in the destruction of the dreaded cauldron. With his faithful friends reassembled, Taran marches off to face great danger with a courageous heart.

    " Way better than the movie! This is the best of fairytales and has to be read following the sequence.. "

    " I loved this entire series, and Black Cauldron was perhaps the creepiest of the bunch. Definite must-read! "

    " of all I had read, I would recommend an autobiographical book Alexander wrote called "The Gawgon and the Boy" and the 5 books that comprise "The Chronicles of Prydain" (which includes the Black Cauldron) The last one, "The High King" received the Newberry Award. He put his heart and soul into this series, his sense of what it means to be human and what it means to be good. Worth reading as a series, especially for children. Some of the others are more predictable and harder to enjoy. I would also recommend the Westmark Trilogy: Westmark, The Kestrel, and the Beggar Queen. They are good preteen fantasies. "

    " Pleasant enough, but nothing terribly special. I'm surprised the series hasn't been made into as many serials and plays and movies as the Narnia books, it's certainly as amusing and significantly less preachy. Still a little preachy, though. But you know, enjoyable. "
