I'm on the endless hunt for a book/series of books (can't remember) I read as a kid. I would have been in elementary/middle school - so I would have read it between 1983-1993.
All I remember is that it was about a boy and he had telepathy powers/ability to communicate with a bird - I'm pretty sure it was an owl. No...it is NOT Harry Potter. It was set in a sci-fi kind of setting and there was a bad guy who I believe may have had telepathic powers as well...I can't quite remember.
I remember a sci-fi setting where they were in a space a tunnel in space on some planet and he was scheming with the bird to find the bad guy.
The name of the books does not have Owl in the title and in the book/one of the books the owl/bird is kidnapped.
Here are some books that I know it's not:
- The Books of Magic
- Chronicles Of Narnia (Owls feature prominently early in The Silver Chair)
- Harry Potter Series
- Owl Mage Trilogy (Owlflight, Owlsight, Owlknight)
- Guardians Of Ga'Hoole
- The Owl Service
- The Belgariad Series
- The Cheysuli Chronicles
- Clash Of The Titans
- The Vengeance Of Wol
- Cloud's Rider
- Rider At The Gate
- The Fortress of Owls Series
- Sky Trillium
- Venus Rising
- Slan Hunter
- Pip & Flinx Series
- The Beast Master
- Valdemar Series including the Owl Mage Trilogy - Into The Dream
The book has more of a sci-fi spin to it than it does a fantasy one. I also do not recall an references to medieval times in the story (from what little I can recall).
PLEASE HELP ME FIND THIS BOOK! I have been looking for over 10 years for it. I even searched the library in the town I grew up in and couldn't find it.
