Summary

Summary

In the midst of war, Soren’s sister, Eglantine, unwittingly becomes a spy for Kludd, leader of the Pure Ones, a group of evil owls. She is brainwashed by an owl sent by the Pure Ones to infiltrate the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. Her odd behavior eventually attracts attention, and Soren and his friends vow to find out what has happened. They ultimately learn of her brainwashing and help her reverse the effects. Kludd continues to battle against the Guardians of Ga’Hoole for control of their tree. In the end, Kludd and his forces are defeated, but his conflict with Soren is not yet over.

With its fascinating look at the owl kingdom and its messages about courage and loyalty, this is a great series for families to listen to together.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Words take flight in this fifth installment in the Ga'Hoole series…Pamela Garelick captures the essential qualities of owls with fluttery, quavering tones. Balancing the high voices of the female owls, Garelick portrays Ezylryb in a craggy voice and Nyra with a terrifyingly cruel menace. One can imagine the echoing owl voices filling the night air with eerie sounds. Numerous characters and owl vocabulary create a challenging text, but Garelick compensates with a slow, explanatory pace…Scenes of action and the final battle scene make for a dramatic audiobook animated by an able narrator.” AudioFile
“Suspenseful and full of unexpected twists and turns…Sure to please readers.” Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review
“The fantasy’s strong believability and fascinating plot make this series a must-read for fantasy-lovers.” Children’s Literature
