"Of all the places in the owl world, this one came closest to what the Others would call a city."
―Lyze, The Rise of a Legend, page 64

Dark Fowl Island is rocky and very few trees grow there, but it is far from lifeless. Its residents more than make up for its lack of foliage and trees, as the many caves are filled with owls and Kielian snakes. The lights and smoke from two dozen or more forges are visible from a distance.


  • In The Den of Forever Frost of the Bears of the Ice series, it is referred to as Dark Flow Island on the map near the beginning of the book. It is unclear whether this is a typo or a continuity error.
