Overview

Beneath a shadowed moon in a cloud-streaked sky, the sacred orb splits and a hatchling is born. It is Nyroc, son of Kludd, fallen leader of the Pure Ones, and his evil mate, Nyra. Born from evil, trained to evil, Nyroc is destined to fulfill his father’s terrible plan: the oppression of all owldom under the vicious talons of the Pure Ones.

But doubt grows in Nyroc’s heart, fed by strange, forbidden legends of a great tree far away where noble owls live in peace. And a light dawns in Nyroc’s gizzard, nourished by friendship. A day is nearing when Nyroc must choose to fulfill his destiny or to defy it. It will be a day of blood and terror.

This book is from the point of veiw of Nyroc, Nyra's hatchling. People don't usually think about the thoughts of the evil characters which is why this is so unusual. They don't wake up thinking 'what evil things can I do today?' which most people seem to asume. I loved it, but my favorite character died so I didn't give the 5th star. Ugh, why do my favorites always die?

I love Kathryn Lasky's books but this one I hated. Now don't just turn the page and not even read this because you love the author.I do too. Don't read this book if you hate heartbreaking and violent death of a beloved character. Two young owls, one with a sad past that draws you to him and is a low sooty, one the High Tyto's son, become best friends and embark on a journey to find the real truth of what they've always been told. The High Tyto's son, Nyroc,is told to murder his best friend,the sooty,Phillip, as a sacrifice and he refuses.His mother attacks and badly wounds poor Philip (who by the way is tied to a tree.Totally unfair!} At the time I was thinking "Oh this is just to make it dramatic, they'll get out of this and create a new life for themselves." But this didn't happen.Phillip tells Nyroc to fly away and that he{Phillip} is not worth getting killed for.Nyroc's mother rips Phillip's heart out. End of story for Phillip. I personally did not enjoy this book. Sad violence is not entertaining to me.I see why the writer killed Phillip, but I don't think it was necessary to do it with so much violence.

Free will means defying your parents? Seriously? No matter how evil your parents are, they made you. I don't care if Nyra is basically an Owl Nazi, at least her actions proved that she loves her family and her work, Nyroc should at least appreciate the efforts his mother made just to make sure he becomes High Tyto, I mean, think about all the down she plucked!
