Publisher's Summary

Soren is born in the forest of Tyto, a tranquil kingdom where the Barn Owls dwell. But evil lurks in the owl world, evil that threatens to change Soren's life forever.Soren is captured and taken to a dark and forbidding canyon where there is a mysterious school. It's called an orphanage, but Soren believes it's something far worse.
He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, find out that the orphanage is actually a training camp. Soren and Gylfie know that the only way out is up. To escape, they will need to do something these fledglings have never done before: fly. And so begins a magical journey. Along the way, Soren and Gylfie meet Twilight and Digger. The four owls band together to seek the truth, be reunited with their families, and protect the owl world from unimaginable danger.


What the Critics Say

"The story's fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans." (School Library Journal)
"Broad themes related to the nature of personal choice, the need for fellowship based on love and trust, and sharing knowledge with one's peers are presented compellingly and with swift grafting to the animal adventure story." (Booklist)

Where does The Capture rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very good, top one third.

What other book might you compare The Capture to and why?

Very imaginative fantasy world.

Have you listened to any of Pamela Garelick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I loved the different voices she uses for each owl. The singing of the owl songs I found charming, Thankfully it was not highly produced. Who knows how an owl, especially a baby owl, would sing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Owl Adventures

Any additional comments?

I needed to listen to something relaxing, which is why I choose a children's book. It took my mind off my worries and even made me laugh at times.
