Book overview: When Soren, a young owlet, mysteriously falls from his nest one evening, he’s plucked up and taken to the sinister St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls.

If Soren can learn to fly, he might just be able to take refuge with a group of brave owls he’d thought only to be a legend—the Guardians of Ga’Hoole!

  • My son has read almost all of the books, they really are good! We saw the movie past weekend, it’s a beautiful film…but sort of missed the real spirit of the books. i suppose that should be expected for the movie version. My boy just bought the Lone wolf book and is eager to start these! Really great books!
