He and his friends are soon swept up into a world they could never have imagined, transported to Latin America and the jungles. They soon become embroiled with the Vampyrum Spectrum bats and their king Goth. The little silverwing with heart, busts battle bats with 3 foot wing spans and other animals and creatures formerly unknown to him. Can Shade unite rats, small bats and even owl's in a battle against Goth who is trying to turn the world into eternal night? The story woven around mythology and legends and actual animal behaviour is wonderful to read - it is a page turner and you will not be able to put it down.
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 www.amazon.com.
This is a dark story, one that is not expected. The evil creatures are very evil and there are scenes that make you squirm. The characters are compelling and life-like. A page-turner of a book that made me stay up late to finish. All the plot lines left open from the first book were resolved and the book has a complete ending giving no indication that there will be another book to follow. It will be interesting to see where the plot goes in the last book, Firewing.
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!
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.
