This brilliant and enduring fantasy series chronicles the adventures of the boy Taran, who matures from humble assistant pig keeper to gallant hero over a series of 5 books.
The books in order are:
- The Book of Three (1964)
- The Black Cauldron (1965)
- The Castle of Llyr (1966)
- Taran Wanderer (1967)
- The High King (1968) – Winner of the 1969 Newbery Medal
The Foundling is not a sequel to The High King, but rather a backround filler.
Inspired by Welsh legends, these books are absorbing, thrilling, chilling and beautiful.
In the same league as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, this is quality, unsurpassed literature, and should not be overlooked. The Prydain Chronicles will undoubtedly continue to please all ages for generations to come.
