Bestselling author Kathryn Lasky takes flight once more with a brand-new Guardians of Ga'Hoole novel!
Far off in the ice-choked land of the Northern Kingdoms, a young screech owl is marked by destiny. He is Ezylryb, an owl who will rise through the ranks of the Killian Army to become the commander of a battalion of snakes. But although Ezylryb is touched by greatness, his battle-filled life is punctuated by tragedy - from the attack that leaves his father flightless forever, to a terrible betrayal by Ezylryb's own brother. But the young owl - with the support of a snake named Octavia - rises above it all, rises high on strong wings.
For Ezylryb is no ordinary owl.
He's the stuff of legends.
He's a Guardian of Ga'Hoole.
