Soren's sister, Eglantine, is falling under the spell of a strange nightly dream. Then, just as Soren notices her trancelike state, Eglantine disappears, and the dreams become a deadly waking nightmare that puts the Great Tree of Ga'Hoole in terrible danger. Soren must lead the Chaw of Chaws to rescue his sister. Thus begins the next battle between the owls of Ga'Hoole and the evil Pure Ones, deep in the treacherous territory known as The Beaks, where a raging forest fire will prove the greatest danger to the rescuers-and their best hope for victory.


This is the fifth book in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, which I'm reading aloud to my younger daughter.

When Ginger (a Barn Owl raised by the Pure Ones and part of the attack on the Great Ga'Hoole Tree during The Siege, who was taken in by the Guardians because she was injured) becomes Eglantine's newest roommate, she begins to change. She sleeps more, and Ginger is always whispering into her ear about how she's always being left out. Ginger is trying to isolate Eglantine from the others, and Primrose is suspicious. Eglantine won't hear of it from anyone, because she trusts her new friend. 

I thought the last one was my favourite, but this one is my new favourite! The story moved along at a good pace, and I enjoyed the focus on Eglantine. It always makes for a more interesting story when there is deception involved, especially when the reader can clearly see what is going on but the character involved is blind to it.

We are continuing on with the fifth book in the series, The Burning.


3 stars!! It was good, and I enjoyed it!

This book qualifies as:
