Peace reigns in Caer Dallben, where Taran works as Assistant Pig-Keeper, but evil threatens the rest of Prydain. The diabolical Arawn's army grows every day, and his terrible warriors never die. They are born in the Black Cauldron from the stolen bodies of slain soldiers. If evil is to be defeated, the cauldron must be destroyed. Taran volunteers to travel to Arawn's stronghold and assist in the destruction of the dreaded cauldron. With his faithful friends reassembled, Taran marches off to face great danger with a courageous heart.

Just as good as the first book.

The Black Cauldron is just as good as the first book, the book of three. And it is also a book with even deeper meanings and more lessons to be learned.

One of my favorite books of the series.

Little does Karen know that he will be meeting those three hags again, nor does he know how important they will be to him in the future. this book is full of suspense companionship trials and tribulations and so much more. I love this series & wish they would make it these into a movie.
