This book reminded me a lot of the Erin Hunter Warrior’s series, except about owls not cats. Soren is a barn owl who is kidnapped from his home and forced to work in an orphanage. He soon realizes that they are being forced to behave in ways no owl should. Soon, the other owls are all brainwashed into behaving unlike any owls Soren has ever met. He is determined to find out what is really going on and with some help from other owls, who have not been brainwashed, manages to do so. He and some friends manage to escape. Together they decide to find the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, who they hope can help them. This was merely the introduction of the story, but Lasky is a fabulous storyteller and sets the stage nicely for what I am sure will be subsequent action paced adventures. And stay tuned for the movie based on the book that is coming out in September 2010.
