Guardians of Ga'Hoole: The Capture
I just started the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series by Kathryn Lasky, not realizing, of course, that the series is at least fifteen books long. The first is called The Capture. The series is about (you guessed it) owls of all different kinds and it's actually very educational if you've ever wanted to know about owls. It's fascinating. It has mystery and legend. It has a great sense of camaraderie - very Lord of the Rings band of travelers. There are some great enemies here too. It's a combination of the natural and the fantastic. I would definitely recommend this series if you're interested in a different kind of journey.
