Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristy Lyn Sutorius
Hoole and his flock are back in the eleventh title of the "Guardians of Ga'hoole" series. Picking up after a tragic battle against Lord Arrin, the new king sets up a training facility for his crew in the belly of a tree sprung from his own tears. Rather than steal glory for himself as keeper of the ember, Hoole focuses his community on education, skill, and the open expression of ideas. Meanwhile Kreeth, the hagsfiend, has created a "changeling," a shape-shifting bird named Lutta who steals the form of Emerilla, a Spotted Owl, and one of Hoole's soldiers. One can only guess what evil Kreeth has planned for the poor orphan. Another imminent battle against Lord Arrin and his remaining hagsfiends requires Theo and others to request assistance from some unusual friends. Closer to the tree, Hoole worries that the ember might be having ill effects on his team. Seeing Hoole's doubts and questions magnified as his responsibilities grow will draw readers even closer to the young leader. The comparison between Lasky's perch warriors—who "[clack] their beaks about war" but will not get "off their perches and fly into battle" themselves but send the "young'uns" in—and our own leaders will not escape kids up on their current events. Friendship, loyalty, and the possibility of love abound in the last legend read to the new generation of Guardians.

    Bad ending

    It sucked how Lutta died at the end, because she actually loved Soren and stood up to Kreeth, then she got murdered right when she turned good!

    I loved it!

    'Twasn't my favorite book so far in the series, but I enjoyed the read very much. One appreciates how Kathryn Lasky is capable of weaving drama, tragedy, and wisdom in her books. I can't beleive I have to wait until March for the next book!
