"To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves."

Guardians of Ga'Hoole: The War of the Ember
Book 15 and the final book in the series. Know your history?? The Battle of Thermopylae? You know that one with Gerard Butler looking all hot? The inspiration for the final battle comes from this legend, and as we all can feel with at least a part of ourselves, legends can be true.
As with all series, I feel a loss when they are over, even if they are 15 books long. No story every ends, an author simply chooses to stop telling it. These books leave me with one thought--fight on. Each day, simply choosing to get out of bed and live a good life, can be a great battle for some of us (for all of us some days). Live a life worth living!!
