Now, with this ninth Guardians of Ga'Hoole novel, the fantastic prequel trilogy to the bestselling series begins!
An ancient malevolence that will threaten the very existence of The Great Ga'Hoole Tree has been loosed from the past.
With his dying breath, Ezylryb tells Soren and Coryn to read the legends of Ga'Hoole hidden in his private library. There they find a world of treachery and magic in which a young king and queen struggle to keep peace while Grank, their most loyal friend and supporter, learns how to work with embers, fire and how to forge metals. He is the First Collier. Deep in a volcano in the farthest reaches of Beyond the Beyond, he discovers a magical Ember but fears its awful powers. Then a desperate plea comes from the king, and Grank rushes to the aid of his noble friends.
