Description

“The world building is excellent, with a few intriguing hints that it might take place on a post-Holocaust Earth, and the characterization is solid. The owls are unique and complex, with conflicting feelings and just the right mix of seriousness and fun." VOYA, praise for the series

The second book in this enchanting series continues this classic hero mythology about the battle between good and evil and chronicles Soren’s quest for nobility.

It began as a dream, a quest for the Great Ga’Hoole Tree, a mythic place where each night an order of owls rises to perform noble deeds. There Soren, Gylfie, Twilight, and Digger hope to find inspiration to fight the evil that dwells in the owl kingdom.

The journey is long and harrowing. When Soren and his friends finally arrive at the Great Ga’Hoole Tree, they will be tested in ways they never dreamed of and face challenges they never imagined. If they can learn from their leaders and from one another, they will soon become true Ga’Hoolian owls: honest and brave, wise and true.
