The Bad Guys...

The Pure Ones - The pure ones are these bad owls who are led by Metal Beak, (Kludd). They are trying to take over the Great Ga'Hoole Tree.
My Favorite Thing About the Series...
There are lots of things I love about the series, but my favorite is when Kludd gets killed by Gylfie with a ice splinter. Then everybody started to retreat because their next commander (Nyra, which was Kludd's mate) told them to, and that night their chick was born.
One Thing I Can't Wait to Find Out...
After finishing 6 of the 15 books in the series, I can't wait to find out if there will be another war between the Pure Ones and the Great Ga' Hoole tree.
It's Not Quite Like the Movie...
You may have seen the movie, and you don't think you need to read the book. Think again! Here are some ways that the books are different than the movie. In the movie Kludd and Soren end up falling out of the nest, not just Soren. In the movie, you don't realize how evil Kludd is. In the book, he is a bad, bad owl, even from the beginning. He was always jealous of Soren, and he pushed him out of the nest. Also, in the book Egglatine got shattered, but in the movie she did not get shattered. The book is also different because in the movie Soren's nest maid snake she almost became dinner, but in the book they find her while looking for something to eat.
