Why This Must Be Read: This is a lush, history-rich continuation of the Narnia series, with Peter fighting behind enemy lines in France during WWII. The use of mythology here is just stunning, as are the connections from our world to Narnia. I'm normally skeptical of original characters in fanfiction, but Marie (the OFC here) is wonderfully written and serves a very distinct purpose in the story. Beautiful and poignant, this is a story that has stuck with me ever since I read it.

"But Narnia is my world!" Peter retorted, resisting the urge to kick a stone like the child to whose body he would be returned.

The god frowned and Peter heard a roll of thunder and a cracking of artillery shells with his disapproval. "Aslan belongs to many worlds, High King, and I as well. If you are able to give your love to only one place, you are not the man I thought."
