Soren’s beloved mentor, Ezylryb, is finally back at the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. But all is not well. There’s a war between good and evil in the owl kingdom. On one side is a group led by Soren’s fearsome brother, Kludd, who wears a terrifying metal mask to cover his battle-scarred face. On the other side are the owls of the Great Ga’Hoole Tree, who must fight to protect their legendary tree from Kludd’s attacks. Soren, his friends, and the other owls at the Great Ga’Hoole Tree enter into fierce combat against Kludd’s forces. They win a major battle, but warfare is not over yet.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fantasy lovers will enjoy the action in this fourth title in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series…The complex storyline interweaves episodes of battle and adventure with lighter moments, while highlighting the devastating effects of prejudice and censorship…the novel offers an enthralling science fantasy, which takes full advantage of the author's vast knowledge regarding the different species of owls. Her semi-scientific speculation on the effects of magnetism on an owl's sense of direction adds authenticity and depth to the fantasy…the story is easily readable, and the fast-paced action will leave fantasy lovers clamoring for more.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Kathryn Lasky captivates us with the gripping and terrifying events that fill the lives of these extraordinary owls…Spiced with a sprinkling of mythology, mysticism and wonderful characterizations, The Siege is an excellent continuation of a unique series.”

    Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Review

  • “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.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lars Guthrie | 1/26/2014

    " Lasky keeps things moving along in this great fourth volume in the series, as Soren and his mates go undercover at the evil St. Aggie's School for Orphaned Owls, and then into full battle mode as Soren's evil brother Kludd leads an attack on the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. This one also introduces Kludd's mate, the Lady Macbethish Nyra. Thrills, chills and lots to think about. "
