Review Words take flight in this fifth installment in the Ga'Hoole series. . . Pamela Garelick captures the essential qualities of owls with fluttery, quavering tones. Balancing the high voices of the female owls, Garelick portrays Ezylryb in a craggy voice and Nyra with a terrifyingly cruel menace. One can imagine the echoing owl voices filling the night air with eerie sounds. Numerous characters and owl vocabulary create a challenging text, but Garelick compensates with a slow, explanatory pace. . . Scenes of action and the final battle scene make for a dramatic audiobook animated by an able narrator. --AudioFile
