It's the end of the world as the people of Narnia know it in The Last Battle.
A lion's skin washes up on the shores of a river, and an ape named Shift decides to put it to good use. Enlisting the help of a well-meaning but simple-minded donkey named Puzzle, Shift constructs a costume out of the skin, and begins parading his hooved friend around as none other than Aslan, the Prince from beyond the Sea. In the name of Aslan, Shift begins to command that horrible things be done. He has talking trees cut down and used for lumber. Sentient animals are used as little more than slave labor. And huge quantities of money are deposited into the clever ape's purse under the guise of 'Aslan's treasury.'
King Tirian and his unicorn friend Jewel have heard the reports of the return of Aslan, and decide to go see this great wonder for themselves. They arrive at the place where Shift has set up court to discover horrible lies are being spread by the ape and his crew, not the least of which is that Aslan is one and the same with the cruel god Tash. When he attempts to expose the lie, he is overpowered and bound to a tree, where he calls on Aslan for help.
Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole are no strangers to adventuring in Narnia. Eustace once sailed to the end of the world, and together the two of them rescued the son of a Narnian King from an evil enchantress. When they are sent to Narnia by Aslan, they immediately free King Tirian, Jewel, and Puzzle from the bondage placed upon them by the evil Shift. But the battle is far from over, as more and more Narnians are being taken in by the ape's foul hoax.
The lines are drawn, and a battle begins; a battle which will be the last one Narnia ever sees.

The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia only in time of greatest need -- and that time is now. The great Lion Aslan, the heart of Narnia, is missing. An impostor roams the land in his place, enslaving Aslan's loyal creatures and spreading treachery and lies. Only King Tirian and his small band of loyal followers are left to fight the last battle in this magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.
