Description of this Book

Against all odds, cubs Stellan, Jytte, Third, and Froya have found the key hidden inside the legendary Den of Forever Frost. Now, they have everything they need to destroy the dangerous ice clock. Everything . . . except an army. The power-hungry Grand Patek will stop at nothing to protect the clock, the source of his authority. And so, it's up to the cubs to convince the animals of Ga'Hoole to join the fight-a journey that'll take them from the fabled owl parliament to the rugged territory of the wolves of the beyond. But the owls and the wolves have secrets of their own -- secrets that threaten to fracture the fragile alliance. Do Stellan and Jytte have what it takes to become the leaders of the resistance? Or will the bears be left on their own to battle the greatest enemy Ga'Hoole has ever known?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Bears of the Ice * Nonstop action, overwhelming odds, and a truly evil adversary will make readers clamor for the next installment . . . proof that a sequel can shine just as brightly. - Kirkus Reviews, starred review Praise for The Escape Horses of the Dawn #1: As in works such as her Guardians of Ga'hoole series, Lasky uses animals to touch on very human issues . . . Complex and distinctive characters offer a fresh view of familiar historical events. A promising start to a new series. -- Kirkus Reviews Lasky successfully fuses fantasy and fact as she gives her equine characters credible emotional depth and underscores the tensions and disparity between Old and New World sensibilities. It's a haunting story of loss, self-discovery, survival, and homecoming. -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Guardians of Ga'Hoole: The Rise of a Legend * Lyze's story can be read easily as a stand-alone tale. . . . Both thoughtful and action-packed, this adventure illuminates the fantastical world that exists between dusk and dawn. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
