Another solid tale in the Narnia collection. I wanted to write up a plot summary, more for myself to refer back to than anything (because I'm the last person on the earth who's read these books, right?)

The storyline here revolves around the young boy Shasta, the talking horses Bree and Hwin, and Aravis, a young aristocrat, as they make their way north to Narnia.

I lost a little steam with this one, as my reading got interrupted with a copyediting job, and my mind wandered more in places with this story (particularly in the scenes involving the Tisroc, Rabadash and the Grand Vizier).

I always love any scene involving Aslan (is that a universal sentiment? I'm sure it is). Admittedly, the scene where Shasta/Cor discovers that the lion has been acting as his guardian, I couldn't help thinking "Footprints in the Sand". Just sayin'....

On to Prince Caspian ...
