Arawn Death-Lord has stolen Dyrnwyn, the most powerful sword in all of Prydain. Now he and his deathless Cauldron-Born warriors seek to destroy and take over all the lands around them. Meanwhile, Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, Prince Gwydion, Princess Eilonwy, Fflewdur Fflam, and many other people join together to over come this evil and recover Gyrnwyn. This book is really, truly, fantasy. I thought it was well written, although since the names are not English names, it's a little bit hard to keep track of all the characters.
