5.0 out of 5 stars Sunwing Review Nov. 9 2004
By Jen
By Kenneth Oppel
My book is SunWing and the author is Kenneth Oppel. SunWing in my opinion is a great book, you'll see what I mean when after your read this. The best part of the book was that when Shade's colony flew into a vast jungle made by the humans and Shade tries to find a way out. (pages 27-100). I liked the story when the character, Boreal said "The truth is everything," said King Boreal and the truth is everything. (page 290). I was really surprised that a really big bug (a preying mantis) was trying to eat Shade and Chinook for supper in the jungle. (pages 142-143). The story character Shade reminded me of me when I was young and a risk taker and a trouble maker when Shade risked his life and went through a lot a trouble just to escape. The quote that really moved me was "There is no promise and the humans are cruel, they're using us to bomb buildings." This quote is was said by Shade and if Shade didn't tell the other bats and Chinook they will all explode if they land from the bomb attached to them. Exciting isn't it? Well if you don't read the book you'll never know the ending. So I suggest you read the book see how exciting this is. After that tell your opinion to your friends about this book or recommend this book to the world on

5.0 out of 5 stars Sunwing Review Nov. 20 2002
This book is one of the best books I have ever read in my life. There is never a dull moment. In the book, cannibal bat Goth, who was struck by lightning in 'Silverwing', flys off in search of the jungle, his homeland. Southern bat god Cama Zotz heals his scars and burns, and tells Goth to go back to the Humans. At this place, Goth and enemy Shade meet again. When Goth gets back to the jungle, he finds out he been crowned King of all the Vampyrum Spectrum (cannibal bats). An eclipse is coming up, and sun-lover Shade Silverwing must come up with a way to stop Goth from stealing the sun forever.
It is a beyond amazing book, so don't delay and read it now! I stayed up all night reading it, and it was all I could think about. Don't hesitate! Read 'Sunwing' today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sunwing- A first rate sequel July 19 2006
By Exodus
Over the last few days, I have built up my reputation as a strong Silverwing advocate. This does not mean I don't like Sunwing, far from it.

Sunwing is a new book with a new set of problems. A great children's adventure, Sunwing is not without it's fundamental questions. I have seen many of the places in airship documentary books. They are well described, but changed realistically during the novel's false war. Although I do not approve of the author's somewhat haphazard placement of an aztec temple within the book, I believe it is a worthy addition to the series.

Unusual for a second sequel, I prefer firewing, however.

Your friendly, thirteen year-old Exodus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review by dudeman Feb. 12 2002
By A Customer
This book is a good pick for people that like fantasy and fiction novels. I liked it because there is always something wrong with what is happening. One problem just turns into another. I also like that Marina, Shade's sidekick, never lets Shade go on a journey alone. Shade, a young Silverwing bat, is on a mission, to save his father, Cassiel. On his second journey, Shade finds himself in an artificial jungle, a plane flying south, and then has to fight the challenges in the jungle. When Shade talks to Zephyr, he finds out that there still is hope in finding his father. But, when he finds out that his father is taken by the cannibal bats, many more problems arise...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sunwing: A fantastic sequel to a fantastic book June 21 2000
This is the story of Shade, a young silverwing bat. As in "Silverwing," nothing is as it seems. When he and his family and friends are trapped in a human-made paradise, everyone else seems content except for Shade, who questions the humans' motives. It is not long before hundreds bats start disappearing. Shade and his Brightwing friend Marina once again embark on a journey that takes them far south to the home of the Vampyrum Spectrum and the homeland of the evil batgod Cama Zotz. What follows is a non-stop adventure that will keep you reading through the night, but I'm not going to spoil the ending for you. You'll have to read it, yourself.

Sunwing By: Kenneth Oppel
The runt of the Silverwing bat colony, Shade sets out in search of his father. He gets blown off course on the way to the hibernation grounds and finds Marina, a lonely bat who becomes his best friend. She helps him to find his father. On the way, they pick up the wrong enemy, king Goth of the jungle bat colony. This book keeps me on the edge of my seat and makes me not want to put it down. Kenneth Oppel paints a picture of adventure and the book opens a window into the story that he weaves. I recommend this book for all ages and animal and adventure lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! Dec 1 2001
This book is so good! I really like Shade's determination to stay alive, save the sun, and find his father. I also like Marina's firmness-the way she always has this urge to go with Shade on his adventures. Since I chose this book off a list of books which I had to read 5 of, I never got a chance to read Silverwing. No matter, I still got the hang of what everything meant. It's also exciting because first of all, right from the beggining, the adventure starts. There's never just one adventure in the book. One adventure comes off another. If you come upon this book, YOU HAVE TO READ IT!
