My theme for the 2017 A to Z Blogging Challenge is The Chronicles of Narnia. These are my favorite stories and they continue to inspire me.
Queen Jadis of Charn (the White Witch) destroyed Charn by using the Deplorable Word and later enslaved Narnia in a 100-year winter.
"It was my sister's fault," said the Queen. "She drove me to it....Even after the war had begun, there was a solemn promise that neither side would use Magic. But when she broke her promise, what could I do? Fool! As if she did not know that I had more Magic than she. She even knew that I had the secret of the Deplorable Word. Did she think - she was always a weakling - that I would not use it?"
