Two cubs. One incredible arctic adventure

THE QUEST OF THE CUBS

For generations, the noble polar bears have ruled the Northern Kingdoms. But now, their society is on the brink of collapse. A group of power-hungry bears has seized control, and darkness is creeping across the snow. Cubs First and Second don't know any of this. Although they're twins, they couldn't be more different. First loves imagining stories, while his daring sister, Second, wants to live them. When their mother is taken prisoner, the cubs' world falls apart. They know they have to rescue her, but how can two cubs who've barely learned to hunt survive a treacherous journey across the ice? Their only chance is to learn to trust each other and — even more important — trust themselves. But survival is only the beginning. And soon, these two unlikely heroes find themselves at the heart of a battle unlike anything Ga'hoole has ever seen.


THE DEN OF THE FOREST FOREVER

Cubs Stellan and Jytte survived their treacherous trek across the Nunquivik, but their quest to rescue their mother has only begun. Svenna is imprisoned at the sinister Ice Clock, the headquarters of the Grand Patek, whose dangerous influence is spreading throughout the bear kingdom.

Only one bear has ever stood up to the Grand Patek: Svern, the cubs' father, a famous warrior who's been in exile for years. And so, along with their friend Third, the cubs set out to find Svern in the legendary Den of Forever Frost, a place some bears claim never existed at all.

But time is running out. The Grand Patek has a secret weapon at his disposal, one with the power to destroy everything the creatures of Ga'Hoole hold dear.

In this second book in the Bears of the Ice series, bestselling author Kathryn Lasky lures readers deeper into a vividly-imagined fantasy world full of magic, adventure, and animal heroes unlike any other.
