Soren and the rest are still on the search for the great Ga'Hoole tree. Some start to doubt a little if they are going to find it, but Soren reminds firm and urges everyone to keep going.And when they do finally find the Ga'Hoole tree, it's time to rest a little and then some training.I was a bit disappointed at first with Soren. When they first got to the Ga'Hoole tree, he seemed to be very immature, which was different from the first book. It was because he wasn't getting what he wanted. But after awhile, he changed and was back to the Soren I knew in the first book, but perhaps much wiser now. I think it was just as good as the first book. Really liked it.
