Ghost Owl is a magical story of discovery, as a young woman seeks to understand her potential and confront her own shadow. Mariah Easter wakes up in the middle of the night to discover the world is as bright as noon—but for her eyes only. Urged by her godfather, she embarks on a mission to peer into the dark spaces normally hidden from view, leading her to confront the sinister nature of power, the vulnerability of the ill, and the hidden life of a homeless man: a journey that will bring healing to herself and the man she loves.

This compelling and inspirational tale, the third installment of the Avian Series, invites the reader to ponder the extraordinary treasures hidden in the ordinary events of daily life.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I had read Red-Tailed Hawk and Yellow-Billed Magpie and I was looking forward to reading another book in Nancy Schoellkopf’s Avian series.
Mariah’s story began in the Red-Tailed Hawk. Even though this is a continuation of her story, this book can definitely be read as a stand-alone. It is quite a bit stranger than the first two books which just had a touch of fantasy.
Mariah disappears one day after she realizes she has some kind of new power. She tries to figure out exactly what is going on while at the same time, her roommate, mom, stepbrother, and godfather are all trying to find her.
Mariah’s journey has revelations but at the same time, it was confusing for me. There are still things that I’m not quite sure about. I did like how it ended but I enjoyed the first two books in this series better.
