really liked it

"The Castle of Llyr"--the third volume in Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles--again confronts the evil that menaces the land of Prydain but on a much smaller scale. The princess Eilonwy has left Caer Dalben to learn to be a proper lady. When she disappears, Taran and faithful Gurgi go in search of her. Like Alexander's earlier books in this series, the story is fast-paced and fully imagined. Those expecting to learn more about Eilonwy, however, may be disappointed; although we learn more about her "powers," her character, while amusing, is still a little flat. Instead the story focuses on Taran, as expected, and his struggle with who he is and who he wants to be. Recommended.
