About the Author:

Kathryn Lasky has long had a fascination with owls. This led her to research their life and behaviour, thinking that she would write a non-fiction book about owls to be illustrated with her husband's photographs. She soon realised, though, that this would be rather difficult since owls are shy and nocturnal creatures - so she wrote a fantasy series about them instead.

From AudioFile:

Third in the Guardians series, this book reintroduces us to Soren, a barn owl, who must search for his beloved teacher, Ezylryb, while also pursuing a mysterious villain, Metal Beak. Pamela Garelick narrates the tale, clearly and confidently pronouncing all the names one might stumble over in print. She delivers the depth of personality Lasky has invested in her flock of owls and energetically leads us through the plot twists. Garelicks distinguished yet likable voice is simply wonderful--her lively characterizations of little owls and maternally inclined snakes all delight. Shes also expert at recapping the owls complex history so that its clear to new listeners, yet fresh for the already familiar.
