"Firewing is a fantastic read, whether you're eight or 80. I couldn't put it down. Brilliantly, Oppel has created an entirely believable fantasy world inhabited by bats and other creatures that, except for their furiness, exhibit all the behaviours of human beings and mythological gods.... The beauty of this book lies in the universality of the ideas: If you're human, you'll get it, and I can guarantee you'll love it."
