Overview


In the fifth book in this series, the war between an evil group led by Soren's brother, Kludd, and the owls of the Great Ga'Hoole Tree rages on.

In the midst of war, Eglantine unwittingly becomes a spy for Kludd, leader of the Pure Ones (a group of evil owls). She is brainwashed by an owl sent by the Pure Ones to infiltrate the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. Her odd behavior eventually attracts attention, and Soren and his friends vow to find out what's wrong with Eglantine. They ultimately learn what happened and help her reverse the effects of the brainwashing.

Kludd continues to battle against the Guardians of Ga'Hoole for control of their tree. In the end, Kludd and his forces are defeated. But his conflict with Soren is not yet over.

I loved this book so much! It always had something new with Eglentine. First she was dreaming about her mom. Suddenly she is flying to meet her, or is she? Read the book to find out.

You know, I didn't even read the other books. I read this first. I'm definitely gonna read more...I loved it when Eglantine finally realized that her mom wasn't her mom...eh, you get the idea...I'm sorry for all Warrior Cat book lovers, but its too addictive and transformed (literally, she spends hours making fake claws) my friend into a cat. Sorry, and I like this book. Gonna read the rest of the series!

This book was awesome! I loved how Eglantine had those dreams about her mum and da and how she kept flying there to see them, but then it totally flips on who that is..! I CANT WAIT TO READ THE BURNING! It looks like a great book! I love the Guardians of Ga'hoole!

This is the fifth book of the Guardians of Ga¿hoole. In this book, Eglantine is tortured by strange dreams and her friends all worry that something very bad is happening. If you liked the first four books, this is another good book. It gets to be a little more psychological than the previous ones, but it is still appropriate for 4th graders (or thereabouts).

In the fifth book in the owl series, Lasky has decided to limit the narrative focus on a single topic: shattering, which is apparently the worst thing you can do to an owl, so far. Again, the Ga¿Hoole parliament shows poor judgment by rooming Eglantine with one of the reformed POWs of the last book, Ginger. I guess if she says she¿s changed her ways, that¿s good enough, huh?Ginger, then proceeds to try to ¿shatter¿ Elgantine by putting magnetic flecks of iron into her nest, to screw up her internal compass, which I imagine acts not only as a navigational aid, but also as a moral compass?At this point, it feels like Lasky is just stretching out the narrative because she wants to have more books than Harry Potter. But, those tiny splinters you get when you scrape the bottom of the barrel are abundant here.

Good one night read. This story gets back into the swing, and leaves the reader ready to go on to the next book.

Im a 9 year old reader of this series, and if you like books 1-4 you will also like this. It is very adventurous and full of surprises, like what happens to Eglantine. It has to do with Eglantine's dreams. You'll love this book!

Full of adventure. Eglantine is brainwashed by a strang owl. Because she is brianwahed, this owl has total control over Eglantine, making Eggie think the owl is her mother. Soren relizes Eggie is not herself, and decides to try to help her.
