This was not my favorite of the Narnia books but still good.

“Prince Caspian” isn't as exciting as its predecessor, but that's probably because it's difficult to write a sequel to an impeccable book like “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” That said, it is still a fantastic book in its own right. Our favorite protagonists, the Pevensies return to Narnia to save the day. Along the way, the faith of the children is challenged, and they each have to rediscover their faith to make progress. Lewis's metaphor about faith is perhaps even more relevant today, as we live in a world of materialism and are hedging our bets on the wrong things – consequently losing sight of the things that really matter. "Prince Caspian" is sure to please people of all ages.

Prince Caspian and talking animals, two kings, and two queens help save Narnia and live happily ever after for rest of the book. To find out what happens after you will have to read the book and read the whole series.

This book is a story within a story. It tells of treachery and betrayal as well as perseverance. There are a lot of battles, but they tend to be mentioned obliquely rather than described. It is a good book for most ages, but should be read after the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Completed after Christmas 1949[14] and published on 15 October 1951, Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia tells the story of the Pevensie children's second trip to Narnia. They are drawn back by the power of Susan's horn, blown by Prince Caspian to summon help in his hour of need. Narnia, as they knew it, is no more. Their castle is in ruins and all the dryads have retreated so far within themselves that only Aslan's magic can wake them. Caspian has fled into the woods to escape his uncle, Miraz, who has usurped the throne. The children set out once again to save Narnia.

“When the police arrived and found no lion, no broken wall, and no convicts, and the Head behaving like a lunatic, there was an inquiry into the whole thing. And in the inquiry all sorts of things about Experiment House came out, and about ten people got expelled. After that, the Head's friends saw that the Head was no use as a Head, so they got her made an Inspector to interfere with other Heads. And when they found she wasn't much good even at that, they got her into Parliament where she lived happily ever after.”

“A dragon has just flown over the tree-tops and lighted on the beach. Yes, I am afraid it is between us and the ship. And arrows are no use against dragons. And they're not at all afraid of fire."

"With your Majesty's leave-" began Reepicheep.

"No, Reepicheep," said the King very firmly, "you are not to attempt a single combat with it.”

“To the glistening eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the great western woods, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun, Queen Susan the Gentle. And to the clear northern skies, I give you King Peter the Magnificent. Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia. May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain down from the heavens.”

“It isn't Narnia, you know," sobbed Lucy. "It's you. We shan't meet you there. And how can we live, never meeting you?"
"But you shall meet me, dear one," said Aslan.
"Are -are you there too, Sir?" said Edmund.
"I am," said Aslan. "But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”
