In the land of Prydain, evil is never far away. Arawn, Lord of the Land of Death, has been building an army of dark warriors to take over Prydain, and the only way to stop him is to destroy the Black Cauldron he uses to create his dreaded soldiers.
Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, and his loyal companions must journey deep into Arawn’s domain to destroy the Black Cauldron. For each of them, the quest has special meaning. For Taran, it is a glorious opportunity to use his first sword in battle. But war requires a sacrifice greater than he’d ever imagined

Lloyd Alexander definitely takes things to the next level in this second installment of the Prydain Chronicles Audiobook series. This time around the stakes are much higher, and the threat of evil has never been greater.

The Black Cauldron Audiobook Mp3 is definitely the kind of fantasy novel that anybody can enjoy, simple without being dry or boring, sentimental without being saccharine, and it has lots of likable characters.
I loved the developed world in the story, and how the characters and their abilities all compliment each other. No character is just thrown in at random for filler, and they all rely on each other to succeed.
