From the Back Cover

The conclusion of the saga that began with The Magician's Nephew… Narnia … where dwarfs are loyal and tough and strong -- or are they? … where you must say good-bye … and where the adventure begins. The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia when Narnia is stirred and upset. And Narnia is in trouble now. A false Aslan roams the land. Narnia's only hope is that Eustace and Jill, old friends to Narnia, will be able to find the true Aslan and restore peace to the land. Their task is a difficult one because, as the Centaur says, "The stars never lie, but Men and Beasts do." Who is the real Aslan and who is the imposter? Enter this enchanted world countless times in The Chronicles of Narnia.

It is fitting that the review should come from my fourth grade granddaughter for whom the book was purchased: "Hey G-ma, The last Battle Was Really GOOD And I MEAN REALLY GOOD and That it had GOOD Pictures And It Really Will Take and Replenish My SPIRITS FOREVER!"

Format: Paperback
As suggested by the title, The Last Battle is the dramatic conclusion and final book of the Narnia series. Looking at the religious corollaries often found in the Narnia books, you can look at this as the Narnian equivalent of a Christian Armageddon and has numerous parallels to the prophecies of Armageddon as found in the Bible.

I'll give a quick plot synopsis of the first portion of the book. It will hold some minor spoilers so feel free to skip ~3-4 paragraphs down to get my reactions.

The story starts out focused on an Ape and a Donkey in Narnia. They find the skin of a lion (its origins are alluded to but quickly dismissed...and that part of the story still has me a little confused and troubled, especially given the direction the skin came from and the direction the characters go in the end of the book). The Ape (Shift) suddenly has a plan for grandeur. He drapes the skin over the Donkey (Puzzle) and presumes to disguise him and present him to the inhabitants of Narnia as Aslan returned. His intentions are not altogether malevolent but based more out of greed. Comparing with the Christian allegory, Shift (through Puzzle) takes a position as a sort of "False Christ" figure who leads the people through deception and subterfuge.

Shift's main intent is to have the animals gather food, clothing, supplies and riches for him but as time goes on, he finds himself making uneasy alliance with the Calormenes (people from a neighboring country to Narnia, introduced in The Horse and His Boy). It's quickly obvious that the Calormenes have their own agenda and they begin subtly using Shift and Puzzle in ways that Shift doesn't necessarily want but is powerless to stop without admitting his own mistakes.

I have finally finished all the series as of 2013, but started years prior before the first motion film came out, and loved it. Ultimately, this was my favorite one out of the entire series!

Every book in this series is beautifully written and my children love them as well. The illustrations make them that much better.
