In the masterful hands of Evangeline Walton the twelve "branches" of the . Evangeline Walton's triumph is to have constructed a vital and living world on the foundations of myth.

In the masterful hands of Evangeline Walton the twelve "branches" of the ancient text were reworked into four compelling narratives: The Prince of Annwn, The Children of Llyr, The Song of Rhiannon, and The Island of the Mighty, resulting in one of the great epic fantasy works of literature. In The Prince of Annwn, the seeds of future tragedy are planted. The Children of Llyr chronicles the great family of Bran the Blessed, and their epic struggle for the throne.

The Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to Greek myth. These classic, thrilling stories of magic, betrayal, lost love and bitter retribution constitute a powerful work of the imagination, comparable to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Evangeline Walton's compelling rendition includes the tale of Bran the Blessed and his family's epic struggle for the throne; the encounter between Prince Pwyll and Arawn (God of Death) which Pwyll survives by agreeing to kill the one man that Death cannot fell.

I'd rate this as second best book of the series. It concerns a great war between the island of the mighty and Ireland over the mistreatment of the king of the island of the mighty sister. Unfortunately the king of the island of the mighty gave the king of Ireland a magic cauldron that brings the dead back to life (as berserk zombie killing machines) as a wedding present. His sisters wedding. To the king of Ireland. Having the magic cauldron makes it nearly impossible to defeat him no matter how many great warriors the island of the mighty has. That's the story and its a great one. Evangeline's retelling is masterful and the whole four volume series is terrific. The collier nucleus fantasy version is also terrific and mistake free. All four volumes of the great series. I got used copies cheap on amazon. Fantasy fans, don't miss this series.

I know the Mabinogion (in English) so it was fun to read this novelized version. The characters were more like people with their virtues & faults. The book itself was well-wrapped against the elements & in fine condition.

Being 30 I could not, in good conscience, give this book the full five stars. I read it in sixth grade and re-read it only a couple of months ago. The writing style is a little simplistic and the background not as full as I would like, yet it still stands as a classic. It is the re-working of one branch of the Mabinogion - equate it with the Bullfinch of Welsh mythology. It tells the story of the demigod children of Llyr, making the magic of myth seem plausible. Let me warn you, however, Celts apparently have a well-developed sense of melancholy and there are no happy endings to any of their tales. There are tragic moments and brutal events but there are also poignant passages. The subject of Celtic mythology is much more popular today than in 1981, but few have related it with the spirit of Ms. Walton's work. It was her introduction in this volume to which I credit my abiding interest to this day. I highly recommend this story to anyone over the age of ten.

Evangeline Walton's brilliant re-workings of the Mabinogion are the place to begin exploring this body of Celtic legend -- understanding that she has taken fiction's liberties with the sacred text (as did the Medieval scribes who wrote them down, by the way). Read the books in order, beginning with Price of Annwn, or start with the best one, Song of Rhiannon, to appreciate them.

One of the glories of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series of the early 1970s was its revival of Evangeline Walton's tetralogy drawn from the Welsh Mabinogion. "The Children of Llyr" is the second of the group, a dark and sometimes overwhelmingly grim account of a war between ancient Britain and the New Tribes (Ireland) that lays waste to both realms despite desperate efforts to bring about peace. The book is worth reading simply for the depiction of Evnissyen, a prince tormented by rage and self-loathing, who eagerly fans the flames of war and then stops them in a moment of tragic grandeur. Degradation of women sets the stage for the war and accidentally keeps it rolling; I have no idea if this is an element of the original story, but Walton's use of it adds an undertone of moral outrage to the narrative.
