Author: C. S. Lewis
What To Read Next: The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede, The Last Rune by Mark Anthony
The Chronicles of Narnia is more than a rap song by The Lonely Island. The seven-book series follows a cast of children as they escape into Narnia, a magical land with talking animals, magic, mystical beasts, and deep themes. (And, this being C.S. Lewis, Christian undertones.)
The series chronicles (surprise!) the entire history of Narnia, from its creation in The Magician's Nephew to its destruction in The Last Battle. Don't get too attached; nothing in YA (or life) lasts.
