When you were little, did you ever dream of a far off land? A land made up of talking animals, Kings, Queens and magical spells. A world where anything, and everything can happen. A land where people change in the most unexpected ways. Well for the four Pevensies–Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, that’s what Narnia is for them. The only thing is Narnia isn’t a world made up by little kids. It’s very real, and so are all the talking animals, Magicians, and Kings.

Not but one year after their second return to Narnia, Edmund and Lucy, along with their rather closed minded cousin Eustace Clarence, all find themselves swept back into the magical world. Due to the differing times between worlds, in Narnia three years have passed while only one has passed in their world. Soon after being swept into the Narnian “Great Eastern Ocean”, they are picked up by Caspian, their friend and fellow King of Narnia. King Caspian soon informs them of his quest to find the seven lords that his evil uncle Miraz had banished from Narnia when he had usurped the throne from Caspian’s Father.

Edmund, Lucy and Eustace soon find themselves on a journey that will change them forever. They travel even farther than Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy had traveled when they ruled on high as the great Kings and Queens of Narnia. Past the Lone Islands, they encounter Dragon Island, Island of Voices, Dark Island, Burnt Island, Deathwater and Land of the Duffers, which all have different obstacles or magical qualities that hinder their advancement toward Aslan’s Country. At each island, they find themselves tested by magic, animals, humans, and Aslan himself.

How will Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and Caspian stand up against pressure? Will they ever find the seven banished Lords? Will all of them return to Narnia unscathed? And will Edmund, Lucy, and Eustace ever come back to Narnia?

To discover the answers, you must read The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader written by C.S. Lewis. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the fifth book in the Chronicles of Narnia, is a book about adventure, magic, testing the limits, and proving your inner worth. A relatively short read, which keeps you intrigued and on the edge of your seat well past the last turn of the page. If you’re in the mood for a fun, and entertaining adventure book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the book for you! So head on over to the library and pick yourself up a copy, you never know what’s in store for you on the pages of a book!

Watch for a review of the new Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie this coming Monday here at KRL.
