This is a great book to read. Soren and Gylfie are captured and sent to st. Aggies. Some owls there are pretty cruel. After they get there they get a new name. For instance, Soren's is: 12-1. I've read part of it though.
I absolutely love this series of books. I was instantly hooked on them after the first few chapters. If anyone out there has watched the movie and has not read any of the books - even if you did not like the movie - I highly recommend these books ages 10 and up. I will admit they are violent but, if you read them you must enjoy them that way. They're all about heroism, adventure, and fighting but, still in a more kid-like way. They are very enjoyable. You will, laugh, learn, frown, and love. The only reason I say frown is because of getting attached or reading something sad or disappointing. But, that's what makes this book so good. They really are terrific. :)
