THE WELSH MABINOGI

It is seldom indeed that a series which starts with the eclat and acclaim occasioned by the first volume, THE LAND OF THE MIGHTY, continues to be as well received and as powerful as its start.

But the second of Miss Walton's books, THE CHILDREN OF LLYR, with its gaunt prose expressive of high tragedy, was just as strong as the first.

And this, the third volume, is again remarkable-as much for the gentle humanity of its principal figures as for the massive strength and awesome dignity they display when their magic powers are invoked.

In THE SONG OF RHIANNON, Manawyddan, brother to the mighty Bran the Blessed, and one of the seven survivors of the tragic expedition to Ireland, unites with his long beloved Rhiannon. But much stands in the way of their happiness. Dread of the seeds of evil planted by the overthrow of the Old Ways, fear for the youthful recklessness of Pryderi, and something darker yet-for Rhiannon is not of this world, and somewhere, somewhen, the Gray Man waits to take his vengeance and claim his own.

This is not what I was hoping for. I thought it was actually related to the Mabinogion; in reality it is a work of fantasy.
