Caspian's father is dead, and Narnia is ruled by his wicked uncle Miraz. Hearing tales of the old Narnia and of Talking Beasts from his tutor, a dwarf, Caspian escapes from the palace to find it.
From the Back Cover
Troubled times have come again to Narnia. The Telmarines have conquered the country and are persecuting the true-born Narnians. Prince Caspaian, seeing the evil done by his usurping uncle, King Miraz, and with his army heavily outnumbered, in desperation blows The Great Horn of Narnia. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, heroes from the distant past, find themselves once more in the kingdom, but with an impossible task ahead of them- to save Narnia.
'The battle of good against evil is fought in the seven titles of The Chronicles of Narnia, the most enchanting fantasy novels ever written.'See all Product description

Each book is a hardback and the pages are of high quality and have a nice glossy finish to them. There is included art work of the different maps which is amazing to see, some pages have illustrations too and the font is a comfortable size to read without straining the eyes. I have not read the books yet but just love having this collection on display. I have included some photos. I really recommend this set.
TAKE NOTE: From looking at other reviewers, It looks like Amazon are grouping different versions of sets together so just make sure that you buy from the right seller that can sell you this one.
What makes this box set so special is the musical score that was written for it. The books are read by Michael Hordan, who is sadly no longer with us. He has a wonderfully distinctive voice which really transports the reader in to Narnia in a way that no other reader has ever managed. His narration is accompanied by some beautiful music played on harp and flute.
I first got these books from the library when I was quite little, and my life-long love of Narnia was born. They remain some of my favourite books and I was delighted when they came out on CD years later and I was able to by them. I well remember lying on my bed, listening to The scene in The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe when Aslan is killed, sobbing my heart out. His death was accompanied by Moon Light Sonata, which made it all the more powerful, and is consequently my favourite piece of classical music.
I can hear people saying, "music and narration together? Oh please no!" but I assure you, it really does work, and it's not the whole way through. There are certain theme tunes you come to recognize, like those for Aslan or the white which. I remember trying to listen to the books without music and it just wasn't the same. It just helps to add an extra bit of wonder and magic to Lewes's timeless imagination.
