The High King

by Lloyd Alexander

When Dyrnwyn falls into the evil Arawn's hands, Taran and his friends seek to retrieve it. Success will be impossible unless they can solve the riddle given to them by Hen Wen.

Barbara's Notes: This action-packed fantasy is the last in a series about Taran and his friends. Readers who enjoy Tolkien will like this series. This title is on our controversial list. (Grades 8, 9, 10)
