The Guardians of Ga’Hoole: The Capture by Kathryn Lasky.

Soren is an owlet, growing up in the Forest of Tyto, listening to stories about the Guardians of Ga’Hoole: a band of legendary owls, knights who rid the land of evil.  Then one day Soren is kidnapped, and taken to St. Aegolius Acadamy of Orphaned Owls.  There he meet Gylfie, an Elf Owl, who was also swept from the nest. It doesn’t take the friends long to realise that things aren’t right at St. Aegolius… evil is the air. Soon after witnessing a murder at the school, they decide to escape the prison-like place and attempt to fly for the very first time.  But will they make it?  Will they ever escape the villanous clutches of the owls at St. Aegolius?  You would have to read the book to find out.

My favourite character is Twilight, who, even though he is very boastful, is clever and strong.  I liked the idea of owls being warriors.  I think that this book is best for both boys and girls, and I give it a 8 out of 10.
