A great battle is on the horizon and drawing near. In preparation, Soren and his band must fly to the mysterious Northern Kingdoms to find allies and study the grim art of war.

Meanwhile, St. Aggie's has fallen to the Pure Ones. If they are not stopped, they will launch another, more deadly attack against the great tree. And without allies from the north, Ga'Hoole will surely fall. Soren's mission must succeed. And the final battle must be won. 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 the heroism.

MY REVIEW:

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

Things are gearing up for the big showdown between the Pure Ones and the Guardians. The Chaw of the Chaws are on a mission: Otulissa and Gylfie are to find the Glauxian Brothers' hideaway to learn more about war strategies and locate a second copy of the book on flecks that was destroyed by Dewlap, Martin and Ruby are to find a certain Kielian snake called Hoke of Hock, and the rest of them are to go to the Firth of Fangs to find Moss and implore his aid in joining forces with the Guardians to fight the Pure Ones.

I enjoyed the action in this one! We have already watched the 2010 film adaptation Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, which combines the first six books of the series. We did enjoy the movie, but it is different from the books.

We are continuing on with the seventh book in the series, The Hatchling.

MY RATING:

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