THE CASTLE OF LLYR The Prydain Chronicles Book Three

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by James Langton

Children Ages 10+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1965

Steeped in mist and mystery and enhanced by an introduction read by the author himself, the third book in Alexander’s beloved Pyrdain Chronicles takes devotees to the island of Mona. Here, Princess Eilonwy is to be groomed as a true princess, and here her life is in such grave danger that even an assistant pig-keeper, with the aid of his trusted companions, must draw on unknown strengths on her behalf. James Langton presents a memorable narration. The personalities of each character shine through, those we’ve met before--the dignified and commanding Lord Gwydion, the flippant Princess Eilonwy, the hot-headed and daring Taran--and those who are new--the bumbling Prince Rhun, the fiercely conniving Chief Steward Magg, and the protective Llyan. Langton’s pacing heightens the urgency of the quest as Achren matches wits with Taran’s band. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
