The Guardians of Ga’Hoole series is full of magic and charm—and great for girls and boys alike. This is the first book in the fantastic prequel trilogy.

It is a time of Legends and a time of chaos, warlords vie for power and marauding outlaws roam the land, and 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, studies embers and flames in a distant land. Then a desperate plea comes from the king, and Grank rushes to the aid of his noble friends.

    " Yes, I'm still reading this series. This book is told a little different than the others. In addition to being book 9 of the series, it's also the first book of a series within the series. It is a story of how things came to be in the owl kingdom. It gives background on a lot of the legends referenced in previous books. "
