Nyroc, the son of Kludd and Nyra, is destined to take his dead father's place as leader of the Pure Ones and to wreak vengeance on Soren, but as the light of goodness dawns in his heart, Nyroc begins to doubt all that he as been taught.

Scholastic
Ga'Hoole is victorious, but far from the great tree, in the bitter ashes of defeat under a full moon, Nyroc is born. And he will be bred to monstrous evil.

Kludd is dead. Nyra, his mate, is determined that her hatchling, Nyroc, will fulfill his father's destiny: the vicious oppression of all the owl kingdoms. But Nyroc is a poor student of evil. A light grows in his heart, fed by scraps of forbidden legend and strange news of a place where goodness and nobility reign. He must summon all his courage to defy his destiny -- and the embodiment of evil that is his mother.

Poor Nyroc!
Raised in that horrible place by an unloving mother.
And poor Phillip!
And now Nyroc is completely alone.

I really like this series SO MUCH!! I've read the entire series twice and some of the books 3 or 4 times. I really like this one because it shows really how evil Nyra is. The ending of the series is an unjust ending when it come down to it for such great characters. I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!!
