Silverwing (Silverwing, #1) by Kenneth Oppel

My favorite part is the echo chamber, where all silevrwing stories of the bats are there for the telling and hearing-excellent stuff. 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 oppfl and a deep chest, however smaller than the other bats and has a shorter wing span. He is killed by a thunderstorm. Goth and Throbb are responsible for the death of the pigeons and, like Marina, both are banded. At first, it seemed to be a little slow, but once the story takes off, it becomes a real page turner. I thought the author did a good job of anthropomorphilizing the bats enough to make them relatable, but still bat enough to not come across as too cartoony.

This book looks really boring, I kehneth to read it for school, is it interesting?


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. Romulus is curious about batkind, and regards them and rats as distant cousins. He was enthusiastic about this book and I wanted to show interest in his school work.

Of course, he was just born a few months ago, so I guess that I have to give him some slack in acting like a pre-teen that has seen way too many Hollywood teen romances. Feeling the impact of winter, Shade and Marina seek refuge in an abandoned human cabin where they meet thousands of banded bats.

Because she also wanted to meet some of the banded bats. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Trivia About Silverwing Silve It was so insanely predictable and boring and there was so many unnecessary road-blocks. Must redeem within 90 days. Replete with appealing characters, scary adversaries, bat lore, natural history, unanswered questions, and conflicting theologies, the story takes on a promising epic sweep; readers will look forward to the sequels that Oppel’s ending guarantees.
