Faith and Time ~ Edmund Pevensie (Book 3)
Edmund has been suffocating in the real world. With half his family in America, he and his sister, Lucy, have been forced to stay with their wretched cousin, Eustace Scrubb.
But a magical painting brings all three of them back to Narnia, where they board the Dawn Treader and sail to the lone islands with Caspian and his crew. Only there is one problem... Amelia is not there.
A race against time - Caspian, Lucy, Edmund and Eustace rush to save Amelia from slave traders and find the 12 missing Telmarine lords who vanished years before. But there is a darkness that plagues the seas - it feasts on the innocent, and those in charge sacrifice the poor to save themselves from its clutches. Edmund and his friends need to save the people before it's all too late - but can they save the people and Amelia at the same time?
Caspian climbed up two stairs that led to the back-end of the ship, and he addressed his crew. Edmund pulled his towel tighter around himself, and in that moment as he felt the warmth of the towel grace his body, he noticed something, or rather, someone, was missing.
"Men!" Caspian yelled, "I present to you our castaways: Edmund the Just and Lucy the Valiant - High King and Queen of Narnia!"
As the crew went on their knees, Edmund could feel that familiar happiness course through him. He was home. He was safe.
But where was she?
"Caspian!" he called out as the men began to rise, "Where is she?"
Caspian suddenly stopped in his walk down the staircase. His grim expression gave Edmund's heart a few painful tugs. Caspian glanced down, apparently shaken.
"Come... let's talk."
