Description

“Pamela Garelick has created a rich collection of voices and gives a spirited narration.” AudioFile

Soren and his band are sent to the mysterious Northern Kingdoms to gather allies and learn the art of war in preparation for the coming cataclysmic battle against the sinister Pure Ones. Meanwhile, in the Southern Kingdoms, St. Aggie’s has fallen to the Pure Ones, and they are using its resources to plan a final invasion of the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. With the future of all Owldom in the balance, the parliament of Ga’Hoole must decide whether or not to join forces with the brutal Skench and Spoorn and the scattered remnants of St. Aggie’s who remain faithful to them. The coming conflagration will demand wisdom, bravery, and sacrifice from all the owls of the great tree and, from Soren and the band, nothing less than heroism.
