A good ending.

Overall, I was happy with this last book. I would have liked to have heard more about Taran's followers. Once they decided to follow him not much was mentioned about them. Also, I would have loved to have heard if HenWen lived a long happy life like Tarran. I guess we can assume she did. Overall, the Narrator did a great job on the series and I enjoyed most of his voices. However, I really disliked the accent he gave some of the main characters (Eilonwy and Gwydion). It was a strange mixture that sounded part German and part Indian. Since the tale was taken partly from Welch legend an English, Irish, etc accent would have been better.
