The Shattering (Guardians of Ga'Hoole, #5) by Kathryn Lasky

The Shattering (Guardians of Ga'Hoole, #5)The Shattering by Kathryn Lasky

My rating: ★★★☆☆

As of The Siege, the series started improving slightly, and that continues into The Shattering. The racism is being scaled back a bit (mostly because of Mrs. P's reduced presence in the story) though it still rears its ugly head at times, biology failures still pop up every now and then (the characters seem to be under the impression that bats are blind birds, which, uh, is certainly saying something about their understanding of the world around them), and the plots are still melodramatic and juvenile (the entire plot of The Shattering is painfully clear by the time you reach page fourteen), but I think it's slowly improving from its dreadful beginning. If Lasky can keep this up, my opinion of this series might just turn around soon!
