The Horse & His Boy by C. S. Lewis

Summary: During the days of King Peter, Queen Susan, King Edmund, and Queen Lucy, a young boy named Shasta and a horse named Bree, both living in horrid conditions, band together and save Narnia from an impending invasion. Along the way, they meet a young princess named Avaris escaping from a forced marriage and her horse Hwin, a young prince who is lost by their group, and the lion Aslan, who hastens their escape. Before the story ends, Shasta discovers that he is the long-lost son of a king, and eventually marries Avaris.

My review: I don’t usually read stories about horses, but I thought this was a good read. And because it took place in Narnia, I knew it was a good book.

My recommendation: I recommend this book for those who like adventure stories with horses featured in them.

My rating: ****
