Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fantasy lovers will enjoy the action in this fourth title in the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series…The complex storyline interweaves episodes of battle and adventure with lighter moments, while highlighting the devastating effects of prejudice and censorship…the novel offers an enthralling science fantasy, which takes full advantage of the author's vast knowledge regarding the different species of owls. Her semi-scientific speculation on the effects of magnetism on an owl's sense of direction adds authenticity and depth to the fantasy…the story is easily readable, and the fast-paced action will leave fantasy lovers clamoring for more.” Children’s Literature
“Kathryn Lasky captivates us with the gripping and terrifying events that fill the lives of these extraordinary owls…Spiced with a sprinkling of mythology, mysticism and wonderful characterizations, The Siege is an excellent continuation of a unique series.” Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Review
“The story's fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans.” School Library Journal on The Capture
