Descripción del producto
SILVERWING is top-notch fantasy adventure writing. Go for it. (Daily Telegraph)
cracking stories, brimming with adventure, redolent of great mythical sagas of the past, alive with invention, thoughtful - at times profound and probing - and never faltering when it comes to thrills and page-turning power. (Carousel)
Fast faced, cliff-hanging action . . . Recommend this one. (School Library Journal)
Totally compelling . . . an excellent adventure story. (The Scotsman)
Oppel's achievement is to have created much more than an action adventure involving bats. This first powerful novel successfully creates a new fantasy world. (Literary Review)
A Jonathan Livingstone Seagull of the bat community . . . this epic journey is gripping, and details of bat life are inventively and convincingly imagined. (Publisher's Weekly)
FIREWING: 'The third book in a riveting saga about bats ... capable of enthralling both 9-11s, as well as an older audience.' (Achuka website)

I really did enjoy this book, part of me hopes this is not the end of the Story of Shade, Griffin, and Marina. But it was a Nobel ending even though there is a slight cliff-hanger that left me wondering.
Overall a great book, it earned the five stars and is a definite read, just be ready for a awe inspiring journey.
At first glance he'd almost seem like the opposite of his father, a trait made worse considering everyone else in the colony continually reminds him of the feats his father did (likely without knowing Shade was a loner at first, too). As luck would have it, the one time he attempts to try something "brave" the young bat inadvertently starts a chain of events that pull him directly into the Underworld, where Cama Zotz (Goth's god) reigns. Naturally, when Shade finds out he despirately follows, hoping to rescue his son before Griffin ends up a permanent resident in the land of the dead.
Following the trend began with its predecessor, Sunwing, Firewing is a darker tale yet still has the thrills and creative characters the series is known for. The story kept me gripping the cover the entire time and was brilliantly-written.
I will admit, however, that while the ending wasn't BAD, it wasn't as satisfying as I'd hoped. It felt rushed and left untied one too many (ominous) loose ends, one of which threatened to undo the events of its prequel.
Having said that, Firewing is still a great story to go with the Silverwing series. Despite the "completeness" associated with so many trilogies out there, I do hope that there might be another Silverwing novel in the future, if only to show what happens to those afore-mentioned loose ends...
Our fourth grade teacher was concerned about us reading Firewing because it was too violent but that did not stop us. Here are some words from your biggest fans.
I loved your book. I thought your book was incredibly outsanding. It is so detailed and inspiring to open up and share how I felt about it. Here are some more words from your two other biggest fans.
I love your books. I'm so sad that you are not writing anymore books in this series:(. Well, you are writing more books but it's not about Shade,Luna,Griffen,and Marina. They are great characters, how did you come up with the names? It's really cool. Now here's one more of your biggest fans. You make some of the best books in the world to me. I would really like you to make another book so then we can find out what happens to Goth and to Griffen and Luna. I love the part where Shade doesn't listen to any of the elders and no matter what he will go into the Underworld and save Griffen. Thank you for writing these books.
