This is the story of an adventure that happened in Narnia and Calormen and the lands between, in the Golden Age when Peter was High King of Narnia and his brother and his two sisters were King and Queens under him. (from the first line)
This is the story of an adventure that happened in Narnia and Calormen and the lands between, in the Golden Age when Peter was High King in Narnia and his brother and his two sisters were King and Queens under him. It is during this glorious era in Narnian history that Shasta, a young boy living in Calormen with a cruel man who claims to be his father, dreams of traveling to the unknown North. One night he overhears his "father" offering to sell him as a slave, and Shasta decides that now is the time to begin his journey. When he meets Bree, a Talking Horse of Narnia who is a slave himself, the two decide to escape together. The pair soon encounters Aravis, a high-born girl escaping a forced marriage, and Hwin, another Talking Horse. The travelers must combine their wits and all their strength to reach the freedom they long for. And when they discover a Calormene plot to conquer Narnia, they must also race against time. The battle that ensues matches in excitement any of the adventures described in C.S. Lewis's previous two books of The Chronicles of Narnia. Assisted by the majestic Aslan, the Kings and Queens of Narnia, first introduced in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, once again rise to the occasion to defend their kingdom.

Annotation:
During the reign of Peter the High King, a boy named Shasta discovers that the man he thought was his father is, in fact, not. Distraught by this news, Shasta runs away to Narnia but on his journey he is mistaken for another runaway.Although originally published fifth in the Chronicles of Narnia, this classic children's fantasy actually overlaps in time with THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, when the four Pevensie children ruled as kings and queens in Narnia. Shasta, a boy escaping slavery; Aravis, a young noblewoman avoiding marriage to an old, ugly man; and two Narnian Talking Horses named Bree and Hwin flee across the desert country of Calormen, intending to seek their freedom in the land of Narnia. But as they enter the great Calormene city of Tashbaan, their plans go awry: Shasta is mistaken for a Prince and Aravis discovers a dangerous plot against Narnia and the neighboring country of Archenland.
Author Bio
C. S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was educated in England, attending Oxford in 1917. World War I interrupted his studies and Lewis served in the trenches for two years. In 1919 he returned to Oxford, where he remained until 1954. An atheist, Lewis converted to Christianity in 1929, and spent his life pursuing many interests: his acclaimed Narnia books and a trilogy of space travel novels; books concerning religion; and an academic career in medieval and renaissance literature. In 1955, Lewis moved on to Magdalen College, Cambridge University; in 1956 he married Joy Davidman Gresham, who died in 1960. Lewis survived her by three years.
