Description: A prince imprisoned - a country in peril. Narnia... where giants wreak havoc.... where evil weaves a spell... where enchantment rules. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, a noble band of friends are sent to rescue a prince held captive. But their mission to Underland brings them face-to-face with an evil more beautiful and more deadly than they ever expected. (via Goodreads)
Thoughts: Really enjoyed this book, as it seemed to have a better flow to the story than The Dawn Treader and seemed to be less contrived than the previous book and more of what I have usually experienced with other narrative fiction that I have read.
I think that the biggest reason that I enjoyed the book was the introduction of Jill Pole. She gave the book a lightness to the book that really allowed me to enjoy reading the book.
Bottom line: A good continuation of the series that retains the magic of the earlier books. Recommended.
