Guardians of Ga’hoole Book 13: The River of Wind

Book 13, The River of Wind, finally the series i almost coming to an end. 
The owl Bess has been studying The Others for sometime. They have had strange markings, maps, and the special “winged ones” all clues that suggest that the owls aren’t alone or weren’t, at one point. But in the scraps of strange objects, lies a map of a strange sixth kingdom.

Bess calls Soren and the entire Chaw of chaws to investigate and see where this sixth kingdom lies. To find this place they must go on an air current The Others called “The River of Wind.”

Traveling they find blue Dragon Owls, with almost Buddhist-like values, who live in the mountains. But Nyra, Soren’s sister-in-law, is back with the cult of The Pure Ones who know of the sixth kingdom and spreads the demon’s magic over the monastery.
What I love is how Lasky adds yet another fascinating culture based on real life, this makes the story just as interesting.
In the story we see how peace is easily disturbed by violence. The story takes a dark twist when even some of the blue owls practice black magic on the new eggs, making them possessed with hagsfiend magic and when they keep a large bird as the king, though he isn’t very humble, being filled with jewels and materials things get worse. Nyra’s strange demonic religion is spreading dangerously as her very feathers turn dark with all the evil that possesses her and Soren becomes worried that Coryn is concerned about his destiny, his mother, and the idea he might be what she is consumed in.

And the biggest secret of the blue owls in their evil past is revealed.
