Review

Prince Caspian begins when the Pevensie kids are catapulted from a British railway station back to a castle in Narnia.

There they find their relics, but not Susan’s horn for summoning help.

A foreign migration group of humans named Telmarines had invaded Narnia since 1300 years before.

The Talking Animals were banned into the wilderness, and nobody is supposed to mention their existence.

King Miraz, the throne usurper, needs to get rid of Prince Caspian, his nephew, and its rightful successor.

He plans to make heir his unborn son.

After meeting with the creatures of Old Narnia, Caspian tries to gather a council at midnight.

Cornelius appears and warns them that King Miraz and his army are coming.

They flee towards Aslan’s How in the great woods but are followed by the Telmarines.

When they are close to defeat, Prince Caspian blows Susan’s horn hoping that help should arrive.

They dispatch Trumpkin to Cair Paravel to look for the Pevensie children and there he is captured by Telmarine army and rescued by the children.

They make their way to Caspian. During their journey, Lucy sees Aslan and wants to follow where he leads.

The group follows its original path because they don’t believe her.

The figure of Aslan becomes visible, and they obey.

Aslan goes along with the girls as he had just sent Trumpkin, and the boys to Aslan’s How.

When they reach Aslan’s How, Nikabrik and his allies are trying to convince Caspian and buddies to help resurrect the White Witch. They intend to have her on their side against King Miraz.

Destiny will be decided in a final struggle.

    Hi there, I have read this book and must say I enjoyed it very much. It was quite some time ago mind you so please remind me, was there a ship involved here?
    The Narnia series of books have already been enjoyed by generations of readers and I am now reading them to my young children in the hope that they too will love them.
    Thanks for a great review,
    Kris

    I really like this website. It gives a wide range on different books and I also like how it gives the rankings for the books. I also like how you put trailers within the site. It really captures the readers eye, of coarse most readers are visual. I have to say you have a lot of visual content which is great.. If I were you I would try to add more content where is needed. The more the better…keep up the great work.
