Read in April, 2002, read count: A multitude

This third book in Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles is my personal favorite in the series, mainly because it includes plot tropes which are particularly dear to my heart, and the sorceress Achren, my favorite character in the series, returns after a book long absence. But even without such subjective reasons, I do believe that I would love this book. It is charming and delightful without sacrificing any emotional realism, and the climax is simply fascinating, in a 'disturbing young adult fantasy' manner. Very highly recommended, but read the first two books first.
