Series: The Chronicles of Narnia #2
Published by HarperCollins on June 20, 2005
The Pevensie siblings are back to help a prince denied his rightful throne as he gathers an army in a desperate attempt to rid his land of a false king. But in the end, it is a battle of honor between two men alone that will decide the fate of an entire world.
Lucy and her vivid imagination and determination to believe enables her to see Aslan first, convincing her siblings that he has returned being beneficial to their quest. Cheers and hope are sounded by his return uplifting the reader’s heart. This is until, Peter must duel Miraz and then one is holding their breath.
I must admit, I had problems with Caspian, not because he was unfair or a poor leader but because I can picture no one else except the High King Peter ruling over Narnia. But if that’s my only complaint, C.S. Lewis has done his job.
I cannot end without mentioning Reepicheap, his loyalty and determination to participate and assist with his skills is endearing and I almost cried at the loss of his tail. (I hope that doesn’t sound pathetic). Overall, this was a very enjoyable read which I would recommend to anyone who is still young at heart.
