4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Follow Up to "Book of Three", January 5, 2009
This review is from: The Black Cauldron (The Chronicles of Prydain) (Paperback)
Taran, the Assistant Pig Keeper continues his adventures in the second book of the Chronicles of Prydain, "The Black Cauldron". With The Horned King now dead, Arwan relies solely on his magical Black Cauldron to contain his power. The Cauldron has the power to produced armies of the dead, but now it is missing. Taran, along with his friends (from the past book) and some new allies are drafted into locating the Cauldron which is believed to be in the possession of three witches.

"The Black Cauldron" begins much like the previous story ("The Book of Three"), rather slow and predictable, but once the Cauldron is found the book takes off. The plot speeds up and some wonderful twists appear. Character development is okay but could be a little better. Characters are still painted in broad strokes of black and white, after all it's still a kids book. However, "The Black Cauldron" appears to more than just for kids, it's plot is more sophisticated then say "The Book of Three". If you can mangle your way past the Welsh based nouns, it would be a great book to read aloud, for the child as well as for the adult.
