The owls of Ga'Hoole return in the third book of the series ready to battle new and far more dangerous threats. Based on Katherine Lasky's work with owls, this adventures series is bound to be a hit with kids. Join the owls in their quest to safeguard the owl kingdom from the encroaching evil! Out of the darkness a hero will rise...Ever since Soren was kidnapped and taken to the St Aegolius School for Orphaned Owls, he has longed to see his sister Eglantine again. Now Eglantine is back in Soren's life, but she's been through an ordeal too terrible for words. And Ezylryb, Soren's mentor, has disappeared. Deep within Soren's gizzard, something more powerful than knowledge tells him there's a connection between these events. In order to rescue Ezylryb, Soren must embark upon a perilous quest. It will bring him face to face with a force more dangerous than anything the rulers of St Aggie's could have devised - a truth that threatens to destroy the owl kingdom.

Kathryn Lasky has long had a fascination with owls. This led her to research their life and behaviour, thinking that she would write a non-fiction book about owls to be illustrated with her husband's photographs. She soon realised, though, that this would be rather difficult since owls are shy and nocturnal creatures - so she wrote a fantasy series about them instead.From AudioFile:
Third in the Guardians series, this book reintroduces us to Soren, a barn owl, who must search for his beloved teacher, Ezylryb, while also pursuing a mysterious villain, Metal Beak. Pamela Garelick narrates the tale, clearly and confidently pronouncing all the names one might stumble over in print. She delivers the depth of personality Lasky has invested in her flock of owls and energetically leads us through the plot twists. Garelicks distinguished yet likable voice is simply wonderful--her lively characterizations of little owls and maternally inclined snakes all delight. Shes also expert at recapping the owls complex history so that its clear to new listeners, yet fresh for the already familiar.
