|Plot Summary of The Last Battle - Chronicles of Narnia 7|
The last Prince of Narnia and his aid, a unicorn, must fight to save the land from an invasion of Calormenes. They were invited to help an ape, Shift, rule Narnia through a false Aslan. The prince is aided by Eustace and Jill, along with some of the loyal Narnian animals. This story tells of the destruction of Narnia and how Aslan brings all that was good in Narnia to his country.
Once again human children are called into Narnia to aid in a major problem. This time a shifty ape called Shift has dressed up his idiotic donkey friend Puzzle and has convinced people that he is the real Aslan. Using Puzzle as a puppet Shift is taking over control of Narnia and causing Civil unrest in the world. Jill Eustance and Lucy are all on hand to help in the accumulation of an army to fight this final showdown between the forces of evil and the forces of good.
This synopsis report prepared by Neil Morey
The titanic themes of the Narnia series are brought together and woven into a thrilling and highly original final book. In fact, the book to end all books, and the end of the world for Narnia. Tightly plotted, and the appropriately the darkest but also the most joyful of the Narnia series, I recommend that the previous six are enjoyed before the final book is tackled. The most challenging and frightening of the classic seven: a master shows how it should be done. This book won the Carnegie Medal when released.

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.
