In the midst of war, Soren’s sister, Eglantine, unwittingly becomes a spy for Kludd, leader of the Pure Ones, a group of evil owls. She is brainwashed by an owl sent by the Pure Ones to infiltrate the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. Her odd behavior eventually attracts attention, and Soren and his friends vow to find out what has happened. They ultimately learn of her brainwashing and help her reverse the effects. Kludd continues to battle against the Guardians of Ga’Hoole for control of their tree. In the end, Kludd and his forces are defeated, but his conflict with Soren is not yet over.

With its fascinating look at the owl kingdom and its messages about courage and loyalty, this is a great series for families to listen to together.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Words take flight in this fifth installment in the Ga'Hoole series…Pamela Garelick captures the essential qualities of owls with fluttery, quavering tones. Balancing the high voices of the female owls, Garelick portrays Ezylryb in a craggy voice and Nyra with a terrifyingly cruel menace. One can imagine the echoing owl voices filling the night air with eerie sounds. Numerous characters and owl vocabulary create a challenging text, but Garelick compensates with a slow, explanatory pace…Scenes of action and the final battle scene make for a dramatic audiobook animated by an able narrator.”


  • “Suspenseful and full of unexpected twists and turns…Sure to please readers.”

    Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review

  • “The fantasy’s strong believability and fascinating plot make this series a must-read for fantasy-lovers.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Amy | 4/19/2011

    " This book got INTENSE! What with all the Eglantine and her "mom," I was absolutely glued to this book until it was done.

    I won't even try to describe these books anymore. There's simply too much that happens.

    Good book, though. (And I HATED Ginger.) "

    " My 8-year-old gives this 5 stars. I marked it down for some holes in the story. "

    " Soren's sister Eglantine was caught in one of the Pure Ones' traps and now Soren and a chaw of Guardians must stop the Pure Ones while fighting against against the odds of size. That's the book in a nutshell, but said nutshell covers very little of the story. "

    " Another good book by Kathryn Lasky but this isn't the best. The book does get boring and I did not like the climax of the book at all. "
