I enjoyed this book but expected a little bit more from Lloyd Alexander. The plot was good but kind of fast. I just don't have much to say about this book.

This book has potential for leaving one very confused after reading it. Don't read when tired. It relies heavily on the dream factor. I for one like the message under the story, but wish he had used a better, less confusing tatic.

Young King Tamar makes a gamble with a foreign king - if he loses, he loses his kingdom and his life. Tamar loses the gamble. The foreign king binds him to his promise by an iron ring that Tamar is to wear, reminding him of his promise. The next morning, the king and his entourage are gone. Tamar sets out on a long ardous journey to find the king. But as he goes along, Tamar wishes he could throw the ring away and return to his normal life.
