The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
“To my side, all true Narnians! Would you wait till your new masters have killed you one by one?” A false Aslan is commanding all Narnians to work for the cruel Calormenes and striking terror into every heart. Jill and Eustace find themselves called into Narnia once more, this time to aid King Tirian in the mightiest of all battles This is the seventh adventure in the exciting Chronicles of Narnia.
This is the final book in The Chronicles of Narnia series. All seven books have been full of adventure and excitement, and all of Christian themes. This book fitted well into that. This book is full of deception and battles. This is an exciting book, and both children and adult.
Throughout the whole book there are clear parallels of what is written in Revelation. This didn’t spoil the book for me but it did make the ending more predictable.
There were a few things I didn’t like about this book:
– I didn’t like the ending and how Lewis set it up so no further books could be written
– For once, there were several characters I wasn’t keen on
– I missed Susan – the rest of the children returned to Narnia but she didn’t.
However, this was exciting and fun. I liked the battles and of course Aslan and the return of the children. This is my least favourite book but I did still enjoy it.
