Overview

Tensions Erupt in the owl kingdom when the forces of evil wage war against the protectors of good. Enraged by his clash with Soren and driven by an all-consuming desire for power, Kludd and his group, the Pure Ones, launch an attack upon the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. The noble owls who live there must fight fiercely to protect their resources and defend their honor. Meanwhile, Soren is called upon by the elders of the great tree to lead a mission back to the one place he thought he'd never see again -- St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. He and his crew will have to enter St. Aggie's as spies, then leave unnoticed once their work is done. Soren escaped the rocky confines of St. Aggie's once. If peace is to be restored, he must do it again.

The owls of Ga’hoole are in danger from the pure ones yet again as they plan an attack on the great tree of Ga’hoole. The noble reign of owls living there take on the enemy at full force using new means of weapons in the way of snares and nets. All owls are put on duty as net watchers. The elite owls use nets made of vines to ensnare the enemy mid flight. They bring back weapons and formations used when the northern kingdoms were at war. But the pure ones are led by Soren’s evil brother, Cludd, who soon figures out what is claming so many owls. Much to the guardians disadvantage the pure ones out number them ten to one and are storming the shores of their island. I would recommend this book for animal fantasy and adventure lovers because for one thing it is about animals and what they do. In addition to that it is extraordinarily made into a fantasy piece. There is a sense of adventure as the owls battle each other for Ga’hool and as the “chaw of chaws” fights side by side with others.

I loved this book I check every day to if it was it the store. A war starts between the Guardians and The Pure Ones. The band goes on a trip to a place Soren and Gylfie have dreaded since they left it. The best Ga'Hoole book I've read so far it was definitly worth the wait.

This is the fourth book of the Guardians of Ga¿hoole. In this book, Soren and his buddies have to infiltrate Saint Aggie¿s in order to flush out some spies from the Pure Ones. If you liked the first three books, this is another good one. In fact, I rather liked it better than the second and third books. Appropriate for 4th graders (or in that general age range).

Good two evening read story. Perfect for a 4 to 6 year old. At the end however, it ends abruptly. To avoid a spoiler, it is simply that the conflict stops without reason or warning. Perhaps a sentence or paragraph are missing?

This is the fourth book in the Ga¿Hoole series, and just like that economic law of diminishing returns, this book is no exception. In this volume, the great Ga¿Hoole tree is under attack by an army of owls who believe that Tyto owls are the pure owls, in a very blatant take on World War II, only with the roles of Hitler being a barn own with a metal mask and Churchill being a squinty-eyes owl with a penchant for caterpillars.Nothing really exciting happens, aside from the parliament of the Ga¿Hoole tree showing themselves to have terrible character judgment, even after the resident mole (also an owl) is proven to be leaking vital information to the baddies.If you¿re planning on going this far, I¿d recommend you plan on stopping when you¿re done. It really doesn¿t seem like there¿s a lot of life left in this series.

At the beginning of this book, Soren has rescued Ezylryb and goes back to the Ga'Hoole tree. Though Soren thinks he is safe, he isn't. He still has to protect the owls of the Ga'Hoole Tree from Metal Beak. Soren then finds out that Metal Beak is none other than his own brother, Kludd!

The Siege is a wonderful, exciting thrilling book ,the fourth book of the series Guardians of GA’Hoole. In the Owl Kingdoms Soren and Gylfie go back to the dreaded St. Aggie’s with Twilight, Digger, Rudy, Otulissa, and Martin as they discover terrifying secrets. Not only St. Aggie’s, but of something even more dangerous is going to attack the Great Tree. I think that this was a great book, and I recommend this to anyone who read the first three books. If you haven’t read the first three, then I suggest you read them in order, or else the book will be very confusing. Emily.K
