But Aslan was sure of his resurrection because he told the girls:
'...she would have read there a different incantation. She would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery in a traitor's stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backwards.'

He knew that Death would work backwards- there is no 'even' in the text as was in the film.
Notice his use of start- meaning perhaps that he didn't know how long it would take. Therefore he could give no promise to Peter because he wasn't at the battle for the majority of it.
