Another epic battle in the world of Narnia.  This one takes place after the Golden Age of Narnia, long since the Pevensie children have ruled the land.  But the Pevensie children find themselves there once more, when they are called by Queen Susan's magic horn to aid Narnia when it needs it the most.

The palace where the children used to rule is now in ruins and all of the old Narnians are now in hiding.  But when Prince Caspian, who always loved the tales of old Narnians when he was a child, learns the tales are true, he vows to bring them out of hiding.

This is one of the more epic Narnian tales.  There's a lot of fighting between the Narnians and the Telmarines, which are the ones that now rule the Narnians.  One of my favorite scenes from the entire books was at Aslan's How (Formerly known as Stone Table), when the children first arrive.  One of the black dwarfs is encouraging Caspian to use dark magic to aid them in their battle.  Of course, they're talking about bringing Jadis, the White Witch, back to Narnia.  I don't know why  I like that scene so much, but I do.

I also love Caspian.  I think he's a wonderful boy and he's very humble.  And the last time we met Edmud, he was a pretty big jerk, and he's really not at all this time.  It looks like its Susan's turn.

Anyway, I love this book, I love the characters, all of the old Narnians and its fantastic and earns a 5 out of 5 stars!
