Edmund has failed the test, so his life and his soul belong to Jadis. Or so Jadis thinks. Jadis knows a lot, but she makes the mistake of thinking she knows everything. Although her knowledge stretches back to “the dawn of time” (LWW, ch. 15), that’s not far enough. There was a time before the dawn of time, Lewis believed. Only God existed then.
