Children's LiteratureFans of the "Guardians of Ga'Hoole" series probably have been eagerly awaiting book seven. One is led to believe that the series needs to be read in chronological order to follow the progress of the characters in the series. Even though the book provides a prologue for readers and a list of background character sketches at the end, one is left with unanswered questions on background information when the series has not been read from the beginning. Owl aficionados and readers interested in the genres of fantasy and science fiction will be entertained by the story. In this installment, Kludd is no longer living. Nyra's mission is to try to ensure Nyroc, her hatchling, will accomplish her father's destiny. The conflict arises in Nyroc's heart and mind. Nyroc does not want to fulfill the dark mission of oppressing the owl kingdom and knows there are alternatives. The question at the heart of the adventure is whether Nyroc follows expectations or defies them and takes the risk. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 9 to 12.
