I actually felt sympathy for Tantya Hanja. Not only is she mostly avoided for poor reasons, but she got blamed for another owl's sudden death. (The owl was old; shouldn't that little fact take the blame?) What made me like her is the fact that she dealt with it. If she had whined, I wouldn't have felt sorry for her. However, she seemed to ignore this fact. I kind of liked Thora since I've read Lost Tales of Ga` Hoole. I liked Lilium because, she remained sharp until the moment she died. Kathyrn Lasky did a good job at depicting several faces of war instead of one.
Even though there is quite a few things to dislike, I'll spend two paragraphs on this. The description for Ulfa's eye wound made me not want to let a child read this. Sure it wasn't very detailed, but that's still a gruesome sight. In fact, that could potentially scare a kid. Also, all of the gratuitous and unnecessary violence caused the aforementioned reaction. Some of the zany things I read made me think she mustn't think too highly of her audiences. A snow leopard knocking a bear senseless? Snow leopards working with owls? Either the child has a diehard fan or exceedingly doltish to buy that. I think she should have done more research. While most of it's true and other parts might be true, a few things are erroneous. (I can only remember one instance. Forgive me.) Owls take ten hours to vomit a pellet and I'm pretty sure that that's not a quick amount of time.
Kinda boring during 'the cadet moons'
I think the story dragged on at times, and didn't make sense. Still a have for the series though. If you don't want to read it on the other hand, or are debating between it and another book, it didn't reveal as much as you'd think
Just my opinion though
I like owls and watching them on webcams.
I just started reading it.
A well written book with action and mystery.
Like the other Guardians of Ga'Hoole, I compare this book with the Wolves of the Beyond series.
