"The bats return! Having Shade, the hero of SUNWING, as a father is surely a daunting state of affairs for newborn bat Griffin. But soon he finds that being a hero sometimes involves being plunged into unimaginable circumstances and doing what you can to survive. John McDonough's rich and nuanced characterizations will return followers to, and draw newcomers quickly into, this fantasy world of bats. With a light, masterful touch, he draws out the emotion and suspense in this story of friendship, love, and struggle. McDonough tells a great story. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
