My boys loved, loved, loved this book. The first of the series is the best, but what an adventure! A lovely intermingling of science, society and creativity. You'll never look at bats the same way again :-)

Wonderful "read together" book for parents and children. Full of adventures and great friendships. Kenneth Opel has written a winning series here.

Sunwing is the sequel to Silverwing and it follows Shade on a new quest to find his father. And it is indeed a quest, Shade must undergo grueling hardships and fight for his life more then once all due to the cruelty of others. But, he forges alliances and makes new friends as his quest becomes the most important thing he’ll ever undergo. Once again Kenneth Oppel shows us a different view of the world and sucks us into a story which is as enjoyable as the last. Sunwing, just like its predecessor is a great story for people of all ages and especially those of younger ages. Overall, a fun and enjoyable read.

IN SEARCH OF his father, Shade, a young Silverwing bat, discovers a mysterious Human building containing a vast forest. Home to thousands of bats, the indoor forest is as warm as a summer night and teeming with insects to eat. And through the glass roof, the bats can finally see the sun, free from the tyranny of the deadly owls. Is this Paradise the fulfillment of Nocturna's Promise to return the bats to the light of day? Shade and his Brightwing friend Marina aren't so sure. Shade has seen Humans enter the forest and take away hundreds of sleeping bats for an unknown purpose. And where is Shade's father? It isn't long before Shade and Marina are swept up on a perilous journey that takes them to the far southern jungle -- the homeland of Goth, now king of all the Vampyrum Spectrum: cannibal bats with three-foot wingspans. With the help of an abandoned owl prince and General Cortez's rat army, Shade must use all his resourcefulness to find his father -- and stop Goth from harnessing the dark powers of Cama Zotz to create eternal night. In this thrilling continuation of Shade's saga, Kenneth Oppel recaptures the adventure and poignancy of Silverwing, which Smithsonian magazine called, "a tour-de-force fantasy", and takes it to a new level of excitement.
