If you like action and excitement, The Burning by Kathryn Lasky is the book for you. This fiction book is about an owl named Soren. Soren and his friends are sent to an imaginary land called the Northern and Southern Kingdoms. They are sent to learn about war and fight with swords made out of ice. Then they will be ready to fight an evil group of owls called the Pure Ones. But the Pure Ones have more owls on their side. It takes place during the day and night. Soren is bold and courageous and Gylfie is sweet and tenderhearted. Twilight is bold and boastful and Digger is brave and nervous. My favorite character is Soren because he holds the band together. I would feel like Soren because I wouldn't want to kill my own brother. My connection is text-to-text because the Pure Ones have more owls and better weapons, and in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the witch has more people on her side. I recommend this book because I like animals, action, and battles. My favorite part was when Soren battled Kludd. If I could change something, I would like Kludd's mate, Nyra, to be killed in battle with Kludd. You would have to like battles, owls, and action to like this book, but try it-you might like it! This book is suitable for ages eight and up.

A) They are too tired (like me, sometimes) B) they are too busy, or C) they honestly dont care about writing reviews. One of those 3 things...
