Description: Narnia... where some horses talk, where treachery is brewing, where destiny awaits. On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself. (via Goodreads)
Thoughts: I have mixed feelings about the book, as I had great expectations of the book and found it to be ho-hum. I was unable to find a rhythm with the book and just couldn't get into the novel itself. It felt more like a separate story than the other two book and didn't particularly like the fantastical element in this book, even though the first two had that same element in them. And honestly I just couldn't see were the book fits into the overall story.
Bottom line: While I wasn't enamoured with the book, I felt that it was a really good continuation of the series and I look forward to seeing how this book connects to the rest of the series. Recommended.
