[Read by Pamela Garelick]
After the time of the legends, the tale of the Guardians returns to the present in which Soren, the hero of books 1-6 in the New York Times bestselling 'Guardians of Ga'Hoole' series, must train a new king. Get ready for old friends and new adventures!
Coryn, Soren, and the Band preside over a new golden age of the Great Tree under the subtle influence of the ember. All seems well, but beneath the prosperity of peace, Coryn is tortured by the suspicion that his evil mother, Nyra, is a hagsfiend and that his own blood carries the haggish taint. He wanders afar, searching for the truth from hagsfiends themselves - putting the Great Tree in danger.
Soren and the Band follow their new king to strange parts to guard him from the consequences of his obsession.

''Lasky has developed a unique series - a fantastical rendering of a world of owls. Characters run the gamut of owl species and each embodies actual traits of that species. Lasky's knowledge and love of owls is obvious . . . Readers will come away knowing more about these birds.'' --Children's Literature
''Lasky has combined fascinating details of how real owls live with her imaginary civilization.'' --School Library Journal, praise for the series
