In the imaginary kingdom of Prydain, Princess Eilonwy must leave her friends to go to the Isle of Mona for training as a proper princess. Because Eilonwy has magical powers, she is sought by Achren, the most evil enchantress in the land. Shortly after her arrival on the Isle of Mona, something sinister and secret befalls her. Eilonwy's loyal friends--Taran, the Assistant Pig-Keeper; Flewddur, the bard; and Prince Rhun, her intended husband--realize her peril and set out on an exciting and terrifying mission to rescue her. They encounter great forces of enil as well as private--sometimes painful--revelations in the course of their journey.

I didn't like it as much as the first two but I did still really enjoy it. There's not enough Eilonwy in it as she is gone most of the time. I missed her. At least Taran finally starts to grow up a bit in this one.

Not as much action as the first 2 books, but still very interesting and will read the 3rd book.

Third in the series of Taran & his friends. Lighter in tone than the previous book, Taran must come to grips with his feelings for Eilonwy as she is shipped off to the Isle of Mona for training in how be a lady. More romantic than previous books without being too mushy for younger readers.

If you liked the first two books in The Chronicles of Prydain, you'll enjoy this book. There's perhaps more focus on character development than in the first two books, but it's still as exciting and interesting.
