The Castle of Llyr book. I also really enjoyed the audiobook's introduction, read by the author Lloyd Alexander (may he rest in peace), who had a wonderful voice. To me, he sounds like Spock, or rather, like an older Leonard Nimoy. Full of sense and insight, just like his writing.

The Castle of Llyr by Lloyd Alexander, Book Three in The Chronicles of Prydain. Princess Eilonwy hates to leave her friend Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, and her beloved home, Caer Dallben. Why does she have to go to the Isle of Mona to train as a proper lady when she's already a princess?

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 became a fan of the Prydain Chronicles at age 10 and found I still loved them years later, when I rediscovered them as a young adult. Now I read them to my own children.

The Castle of Llyr is serviceable, but to me reads as the weakest of the five novels in the series. As other reviewers have pointed out, it pretends to be Eilonwy's story but she is present for only the first and last chapters. Taran remains the central figure. Here, we see his growing maturity as he makes a promise to a king -- unwillingly -- and must overcome romantic jealousy and envy in order to keep his word. The relationship between Taran and inept (but rather bright) Prince Rhun is, to my mind, the heart of the book and its most gripping feature.

However, the book continues the ongoing downward trajectory of Eilonwy as a character. In Book One, she seems to be Taran's equal in courage, spirit, and intelligence. In Book Two, she is demoted slightly to follower/cheerleader, as she accepts Taran's leadership on their quest and spends much of the book shoring up his faltering confidence. In Castle of Llyr we get an initial glimpse of her reckless courage, but she spends the rest of the book offstage, doing nothing heroic as she awaits rescue. In Book Four, while Taran is growing up by adventuring across Prydain, she is growing up by learning to curtsey and wash her hair. By Book Five, our heroine is in many ways traditionally feminine: she does embroidery, gets her way through charm, is kidnapped and threatened with rape, is rescued through no agency of her own, recognizes love, and ends by following her beloved blindly into his world with no thought for herself and no aspirations besides romance. The disparate development of their characters throughout the series -- Taran learning the courage and sacrifice needed to become a fit leader of Prydain; Eilonwy learning to make romance (and Taran) her only interest -- sadly make them seem a poorer match for each other by the end of the series than they were at the beginning. But perhaps it was Alexander's goal all along to have his untraditional youngsters end by filling the traditional storybook roles of hero prince and loving princess.

My biggest quibble lies with the climax. The theme of self-sacrifice gets heavy play in the Prydain Chronicles, as in most high fantasy novels. It's a beautiful part of the series, and during Taran's many noble moments of it we are always shown the struggle and pain - and hence the growing maturity - his sacrifices bring him. Castle of Llyr ends with a great sacrifice made by Eilonwy. However, it is given a blink-and-you'll-miss-it treatment by the author, which utterly diminishes the power of the book. Taran, through whose eyes the novel is told, seems (like Alexander) hardly to understand what his beloved has sacrificed; nor does he much care. (The downplaying of Eilonwy's heroic sacrifice will happen again, even more egregiousy, at the close of Book Five.)

So - a bit of a disappointment due to the author's giving short shrift to a character who could have been much more richly and fairly painted. But there are many wonderful Taran moments, so if you like the Prydain Chronicles in general, you'll like this one just fine.

After the tinge of grimness in THE BLACK CAULDRON, Lloyd Alexander gives us a more light-hearted jaunt to Prydain in the third book of the series, THE CASTLE OF LLYR.

I love this rollicking romp, but this is my least favorite book in the series despite our introduction to the smallest giant in all literature, Glew who has a wildcat the size of a carthorse, Llyan.

The basic premise is that Princess Eilonwy is being sent to the Isle of Mona to be educated as a proper young lady. There's talk that she will be betrothed to Prince Rhun, the heir-apparent of that kingdom. Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper and our hero, discovers he doesn't like separation from Eilonwy and he likes the planned betrothal even less. Prince Rhun is a nice guy, but a total klutz! To make matters worse, when events transpire that put Eilonwy in danger, poor Taran is taken aside by the King of Mona. The King, knowing that his son is less than competent, asks Taran to look after Rhun as well.

Talk about a heart-burning situation! Rhun strives to live up to his position and Taran strives not to mind the fact that he has to repeatedly save Rhun when he really wishes the prince at the devil! This is very funny for the reader.

Events move at a rapid pace in this volume, however the ending is still abrupt and still makes me indignant. My lips are sealed on that--this is a no spoiler review!

Perhaps another reason that I like this book least of all five books in the series is Eilonwy herself. I love her daft comments and she's assuredly brighter than Taran, but as a character she never changes. From book one to five, Taran undertakes a journey that step by step takes him into manhood. Although Eilonwy is roughly the same age, she seems born with the knowledge that twists Taran around her little finger; she'll never change from girl to granny. It's the one flaw in Alexander's vision that he can't show us anything of Eilonwy's journey into womanhood. I can't call it a small one, but I love this series so much I can't mark it down too much. Call this four and half stars, then, in comparison to the rest of the series.
