Soren is born in the forest of Tyto, a tranquil kingdom where the Barn Owls dwell. But evil lurks in the owl world, evil that threatens to change Soren’s life forever.

Soren is captured and taken to a dark and forbidding canyon where there is a mysterious school. It’s called an orphanage, but Soren believes it’s something far worse.

He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, find out that the orphanage is actually a training camp. Soren and Gylfie know that the only way out is up. To escape, they will need to do something these fledglings have never done before—fly. And so begins a magical journey. Along the way, Soren and Gylfie meet Twilight and Digger. The four owls band together to seek the truth, be reunited with their families, and protect the owl world from unimaginable danger.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Broad themes related to the nature of personal choice, the need for fellowship based on love and trust, and sharing knowledge with one’s peers are presented compellingly and with swift grafting to the animal adventure story.”


  • “The story’s fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans.”

    " Another Elena insisting I read this book. This one is pretty good, obviously a series book so no conclusion at the end. I do love owls, and am intrigued to know what the bad ones are up to. Oddly, the "flecks" are reminding me of "dust", hmmm.... "
