This first sequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe includes all the hallmarks of its famous predecessor, though this time the fate of Narnia is wound up in the lives of its own children, and a talking horse!

    A humourous tale of bravery

    The print is better with the illustrations by Pauline Baynes, but the audiobook is great to listen along with while reading.

    The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia only in time of greatest need, and that time is now. The great Lion Aslan, the heart of Narnia, is missing. An impostor roams the land in his place, enslaving Aslan's loyal creatures and spreading treachery and lies. Only King Tirian and his small band of loyal followers are left to fight the last battle in this magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.

    Narnia Chronicles come to a great conclusion

    I would recommend this book due to the dynamic nature of the story and the theology so deeply woven throughout.
