12. 'The Black Cauldron,' by Lloyd Alexander
The Black Cauldron, the Newbery Medal-winning second book in Lloyd Alexander's The Chronicles of Prydain, is a classic fantasy novel set in the land of Prydain, where evil is never far away because the Lord of the Land of Death has been building an army of dark warriors. 

Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, and his loyal companions must journey deep into Arawn, the Lord of the Land of Death's, domain to destroy the Black Cauldron which he uses to create his dreaded soldiers. But war requires a sacrifice greater than Taran ever imagined.
