Description (Taken from Goodreads)
Narnia ... where anything can happen (and most often does) ... and where the adventure begins. The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his first voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne. The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan's country at the End of the World.
This sea-faring fifth installment has everything a lover of Narnia could want. The two youngest Pevensie children (along with their obstinate and annoying cousin Eustace) set sail on a wild journey with the charming Caspian and the ever adventurous Reepicheep. Surprises and new discoveries are around every single bend and I loved it.

The characters truly shined in this one and I was happy to venture back into Narnia with at least some of the Pevensie’s. Eustace is a delightfully awful character to start off, but his part in the story works so well and his growth is amazing for such a short novel. Edmund and Lucy are once again two of my favorite characters, but Reepicheep steals almost every scene he is in. Much like in the film version of Prince Caspian, the little mouse is quite the spitfire and always up for a fight.

The journey through the vastly different islands is both entertaining and enthralling. I was never bored with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and I am even more excited to see the movie this Christmas. This installment was by far my favorite book in the series (thus far).
*This review is my honest opinion and I received no monetary compensation from it.
