Apprenticed to a venerable wizard when his hunter and trapper parents disappear into the forest never to be seen again, Darian is strong-willed and difficult--much to the dismay of his kindly master. But a sudden twist of fate will change his life forever, when the ransacking of his village forces him to flee into the great mystical forest. It is here in the dark forest that he meets his destiny, as the terrifying and mysterious Hawkbrothers lead him on the path to maturity. Now they must lead the assault on his besieged home in a desperate attempt to save his people from certain death!

This is the first book in the Darian's Owl series. Very interesting, well-written, and detailed, here we have a 14 year old boy at odds with his village. When the village is attacked, that boy ends up with the legendary Hawkbrothers, and together with them helps the villagers.
For those who are already fans of Valdemar, this is a look at the edge of the country, and how it was affected by what happened in the Winds trilogy, and an introduction to the Hawkbrothers of now.
Highly recommend it!

I just finished reading the other customer reviews of this entertaining tale. It sounds like most of them haven't read enough of this type of book and don't hang out with teenagers enough. It was a very satisfactory read and I did finish it in a little more than one sitting. Again I don't understand what people expect from fantasy. It shouldn't try to solve all the problems of the world, it should just be a good way to spend time. I enjoy most of the Lackey/Dixon books and am looking forward to more of the Valdemar history. I must admit I do love those grphons.
