The best result of reading this book, is my grandson has asked for the next two books in the series! Thank you for signing up, fellow book lover!

Private Saunders – A pigeon soldier in the city. Eines Tages wird er es allen zeigen: Pages to import images to Wikidata. That makes you the best friend I’ve ever had. Ariel tells Shade that he was eaten by owls, but at Hibernaculum, Icarus tells Shade that Cassiel went inside a human building with another bat called Hanael.


But he’s determined to prove himself on the long, dangerous winter migration to Hibernaculum, millions of wingbeats to the south. Being a fan of bats, I was very pleased to find this new trilogy, with bats as the main characters! Shade is described as having thick black fur and a deep chest, however smaller than the other bats and has a shorter wing span.

I use this book a lot with my creative writing students as a part of our reading workshop and it consistently rates very high with them, regardless of gender or age.

Silverwing Trade Paperback Silverwing is the first installment of the Silverwing series silvwrwing, though it is chronologically the second novel in the sequence after Darkwing. The main character Shade’s longings and affections are remarkably human and the bat rituals and culture are believable. After they leave, Goth and Throbb arrive, eat Scirocco’s bats and steal their bands as hunting trophies. I read it in just a day, and that’s no small feat for me! He is also cunning, planning to eat Shade before they arrive at Hibernaculum and eating all the Silverwing bats in their sleep.

One of my favorite things that still blows my mind about this book is that the author admits to using only ‘black’, opel, and ‘silver’ as colors in the book. Er ist ein Charakter der sich stark entwickeln und viel lernen muss. I highly recommend this book, and if you read it and like it, continue on and read the other books. I don’t like children who misbehave and endanger others, like Lion King. Let me get into that. I read this book a long time ago and a few of the concepts in it stuck with me Also, I kind of found the one cult-group of bats more frightening than the actual villains.

I started out writing sci-fi epics my Star Wars phase then went on to swords and sorcery tales my Dungeons and Dragons phase and then, during opoel summer holiday when I was fourteen, started on a humorous story about a boy addicted to video games written, of course, during my video kennefh phase.

The Silverwing Trilogy

At around twelve I decided I wanted to be a writer this came after deciding I wanted to be a scientist, and then an architect.


So, Frieda is a banded bat, and he takes shade our good old main character I enjoyed it well enough, but it’s not one that’ll stay with me in the long-term, I don’t think. It really lathers itself with action sequences which are brilliantly described and constructed by Oppel and leave you waiting in anticipation for the next.

Cassiel – Ariel’s mate and Shade’s father. His award-winning Silverwing trilogy has sold over a million copies worldwide and been adapted as an animated TV series and stage play.

Goth is worried about Marina, who might affect Shade, and instructs Throbb to kill her.

Scirocco totally ignores Shade, and uses his charm on Marina, whom he convinces to stay with them although Marina later changes her mind. Nov 02, Charles rated it it was amazing Shelves: Scirocco is a liar, using sound images and echolocation to delude the other bats to turn into humans and give him power.

Kenneth Oppel is the author of numerous books for young readers. My one problem with the book was the flatness of the characters.

Later, the captain tries to amputate Shade and Marina’s wings, but the two escape. Humans – Humans make an appearance in the city. She is also level-headed, being suspicious of Goth and Throbb even before they revealed their true colors. Ever since Cassiel’s silverwjng death, Ariel has been uberparanoid of the safety of her son. While I don’t think the overall story is quite as enjoyable nor the secondary characters as well-developed as the “Airborn” series, this could be two-fold–first, this is a middle grade novel and much shorter than “Airborn” and also it’s Oppel’s earlier work.

Kudos to Kenneth Oppel and his great writing. But he’s determined to prove himself on the long, dangerous winter migration to Hibernaculum, millions of wingbeats to the south.
