The Book of Three

On their journey northward from Medwyn's Valley, Taran led the Companions over a difficult region of sheer rocks. He believed he could take a short cut around the shore of the Black Lake. By some enchantment the companions found themselves not only plunging into the water but dragged, inexorably, into its depths.
