I read this book as a novel study in Grade 5, and absolutely loved it! I then read all of the books in the series except the prequel (I got bored). Kenneth Opel is a really good author, he writes with emotion and he really feels for his characters. I LOVED this book!!

Another Warriors copy, just GREAT.

Hahaha, I bet you thought I was being sarcastic!
Nope. I actually really can't wait to read this!

I LOVE Warriors copies, they're really interesting, and I even wrote a few myself so I guess I can't be angry :3

This is a fantastic book for mature young folks, with a yearning for adventure. It can be intense in parts, but a parent can guide the reader through it. Many great discussions in our house that came from this series. It's on my top 20 books for kids.

Silverwing is an awesome story about a young bat and his adventures. I love the "Silverwing Saga" by Kenneth Oppel (however it does get kinda dark and sad in the last few books). Sunwing (the second book) was very enjoyable as well, with many dramatic twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Firewing (the third book) is very sad and depressing—it almost made me cry at some parts. Darkwing (the fourth book) is quite interesting as well, although not as good as the first three (I hate the cannibal felids—Carnassial is loco).
I would rate this book six stars if I could!

An interesting concept, but this book just wasn't for me. I found it slow-moving and unengaging, but I can see how young fans of the Warriors series or Guardians of Ga'Hoole might really like it.

I loved this book because you can learn somethings about bats in a story. It has lots of emotion and some fantasy. It is very exciting to see how he gets back home. It is also an adventurous book. Definitely recommend this book.
