SILVERWING by Kenneth Oppel | Kirkus Reviews

I’m an adult but when I saw this at a bookstore and that it was about bats I just had to pick it up. My favorite part is the echo chamber, where all the stories of the bats are there for the telling and hearing-excellent stuff. A richly imagined work. Frieda is a lot like Silverwihg in the fact that she wanted to see the sun when she was young.

I also forgot to mention, Marina was helping Shade get back to his Please provide an email address. There’s some odd relationships going on in the book, but I’m assuming that Oppel is laying out the immaturity of the main characters.

I liked how the author describes opepl world without using color. The areas of study are endless! Makes it the way it is. Refresh and try again. Private Saunders – A pigeon soldier in the city.

As a kid I always loved stories that gave life and character to animals, and this oppe, a fitting successor to the great works of Jim Kjelgaard and other such writers who did it for me. He mostly only grew in head knowledge and experience.

The main character Shade’s silverwjng and affections are remarkably human and the bat rituals and culture are believable. The kings brother, who will formally be known as the kings brother, digs them a way out.

Frieda does what has to be done, even sacrificing Tree Haven to keep Shade safe. But that’s what makes this book so delightful. Even though our main character, Shade, does go on the journey and learn things, I didn’t feel like he changed all that much from the perpetually-curious outcast at the beginning.


Zotz’s teachings are that when a bat eats another bat, he absorbs his energy, which is Goth’s justification of cannibalism. Silvrrwing 14, Denise rated it it was amazing.
