Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  SC

Soren and his division of owls are from Ga'Hoole and are being sent on a very important mission. If they fail this mission then many owls in the world could perish at the hands (or talons) of the Pure Ones. Soren splits his team up for the mission, they all go to different places in the Northern Kingdom to ask for help from the groups of owls there that could help them fight the Pure Ones. The Pure Ones are dangerous owls who if became powerful enough could destroy owls at their will. This is because the Pure Ones have flecks, which is a substance that if used properly could scramble an owls mind and eventually kill it. Soren must gather the recruitments up in time so that they can overpower the Pure Ones.

The Burning is similar to the Redwall series but not as long or as well-articulated. In this book there were too many made up words and too many characters. I found that I needed to constantly look in the back of the book where characters and their descriptions were listed in order to keep up with the story. This became annoying and distracting. Soren was described very well as others were, this made them more familiar and likable. This book in general would appeal to a younger audience.

SECOND REVIEW


Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  WP

The Burning is about a Barn Owl named Soren, and his friends, Gylfie, an Elf Owl, Twilight, a Great Grey Owl, and Digger, a Burrowing Owl. These four, along with some other owls, go on a quest to the North. In this quest, they are attempting to gather help for Ga'Hoole, the place that they live. The owls of Ga'Hoole are planning a strike in the battle against the Pure Ones. The Pure Ones are a group of evil Barn Owls that are led by Soren's brother, Kludd

This book was very interesting because it had a lot of fighting and battle between the Guardians of Ga'Hoole and the Pure Ones. This book, however, was hard to understand because it was book six in a series, and having not read the first five, I had to just go along with the references made back to the earlier books. I would recommend this book, but I would recommend reading the first five books in the series first.
