Description

Shade, a young silverwing bat, is searching the countryside for his father when he discovers a huge glass building. When he flies inside, he finds a forest haven where, safe from predatory owls, hundreds of bats are finally living in the sunlight. But when he tries to find an exit, Shade quickly realizes that instead of a paradise, the building is really a prison. From there, bats are taken to laboratories, where they are fitted with bombs and used in human warfare. Even as Shade manages to escape, he knows that the fate of his entire species is in great peril. It's up to him to foil the dark force that plots against the silverwings. Sunwing is the exciting continuation of Silverwing, which was lauded by Smithsonian magazine as a tour-de-force of fantasy. With John McDonough's dramatic narration, Shade and his world soar with colorful life.

Professional reviews

"At first blush, a series about bats may not grab you, but this story about a young silver wing bat called Shade, who sets out to find his missing father, is much more than a story about bats. Shade sets in motion a chain of events that threatens his family and friends and confronts head-on issues related to the human domination of nature and warfare. Any misgivings will be set aside early as John McDonough brings the skill of a master storyteller to this tale. His engagement with the story is contagious. He makes good use of timing to keep the adventure moving forward with no hesitation. His characterizations are rich and nuanced, and his narration weaves a net that will hold you until the very end.
