Shade is a young Silverwing bat, the runt of his colony. But he's determined to prove himself on the long, dangerous winter migration to Hibernaculum, millions of wingbeats to the south. During a fierce storm, he loses the others and soon faces the most incredible journey of his young life. Desperately searching for a way to rejoin his flock, Shade meets a remarkable cast of characters: Marina, a Brightwing bat with a strange metal band on her leg; Zephr, a mystical albino bat with a strange gif ...more

Sunwing, by Kenneth Oppel, was the adventure of a silverwing bat named Shade. Shade was the runt of his colony, and had a best friend named Miressa. In this book, Shade travels across the harsh earth to find his father who left the colony before Shade could remember him. There was a problem though: owls and cannibal bats. The owls and bats were at war with each other because of the cannibal bats. The cannibal bats attacked owls, and the owls didn't understand that those same bats ate and killed ...more
This is an excellent set of books that I read aloud to my elementary aged boys. They loved the excitment and adventures of Shade, a Silverwing bat. This is the first time while reading to my boys, that I felt compelled to read ahead - because the story was so well written and exciting. I recommend the series even if you don't have any boys to read it to. It's a great and fun read, and you learn a lot about bats.
Silver wing and sunwing just made me keep asking for more...oh and they made me save a little bats life....but thats a whole nother story! lol...anyways...highly recommed both...also in the eyes of animals...haven't read fire wing...don't plan on it...its about when hes in hell, totally not cool! ;(
These are by far my favorite read aloud series as a teacher and one of my favorite books personally. The characters are well-developed, the plot is engaging and you can't put it down. I NEVER thought I would learn to love bats so much. Got this author to write to my 4th-grade class. Way cool!!
Loved these books. The last is a bit different than the first 2, so more for an older child. The first 2 are about the life of a bat. The 3rd deals with the bat underworld and how to get back.

Best gift you could ever get a little boy who loves bugs, bats and owls - although girls will love this too. Violence increases to really creepy gritty by third book, but no less brilliant for it.

Silverwing, Sunwing, and Firewing are wonderful books where the characters are bats. I read these books again and again. This Trilogy easily makes my top three list.
Of course, I really like anthropomorphic fiction anyway, but these three novels are written so beautifully that it is unusually outstanding and difficult to put down.
Though a little bit slow at times, I really liked these ones. Kenneth Oppel is a great author.
