Publisher's Summary

A tale of chaos, betrayal, and nachtmagen unfolds in the second of three ancient legends. It is no idle history, for hidden in its pages are the truths about the great promise—and great danger—that lies just ahead for the Guardians. And so Soren, Coryn, and the members of the Band read on....

A grizzled collier will tend a young prince in exile. An owl who would be monk will don battle claws. A mother who is also a queen will raise an army. And under the shower of embers in the shadow of the Sacred Volcanoes, a king will be born—or die.

Feathered friends: listen to more in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series.

Outstanding performance

Garelick does a fantastic narration job! She really makes the characters, both male and female, come to life. The story doesn’t feel too unique for a Ga’Hoole book, and the main character feels a little bit like a Mary Sue to me, but the conclusion was satisfying enough and even gave me some chills just before the epilogue. I would say it is a worthy read for a huge Lasky-verse fan like myself.

Just keeps going...

Started reading this series years ago, while good it seems to be slogging along towards a finale that only the author seems to see.
