"Firewing is a first rate sequel to Kenneth Oppel's earlier award-winning novels, Silverwing and Sunwing. With a spring-tight plot, it propels the reader through exciting, chilling, and deliciously satisfying adventure. Oppel has created a new cast of bats, Griffin and Luna, to join the old favourites, Shade Silverwing and Marina Brightwing, and has developed Griffin as a character markedly different from Griffin's father, Shade. Oppel has also created a unique Underworld, drawn in part from classical mythology, but disctinctly his own. What makes the Underworld especially interesting is that instead of just one version of the bat-afterlife, Oppel portrays several different versions of the notion of life-after-death.... Firewing is sure to delight fans of the previous books."
