It basically just means the 'second to last' one. For example if i was to say, "it was the penultimate episode of the series", I'm basically saying that the episode was the second to last episode in the series.

Lewis called The Chronicles of Narnia, the penultimate novel would be The Magician's Nephew (#6), which comes before the last novel, The Last Battle (#7) in the popular series.
