Product description


A terrific, rollicking adventure ... filled with irresistible optimism and zest (The Times)

A real rip-roarer. (The Sunday Times)

This is gripping stuff. (The Bookseller)

brilliantly done ... Airborn's contained world is totally absorbing, cleverly plotted, a terrific read. (The Irish Times)

a tightly plotted, fast-paced adventure with engaging and humorous characters (TES)

A successful 'boys' own' story which manages to avoid being a 'boys only' story. (The School Librarian)

Silverwing trilogy: 'cracking stories, brimming with adventure, redolent of great mythical sagas of the past, alive with invention, thoughtful - at times profound and probing - and never faltering when it comes to thrills and page-turning power.' (Carousel)

Oppel's achievement is to have created much more than an action adventure involving bats . . . He explores their collective dreams and aspirations, as well as their individual characters. Sunwing is a truly spell-binding sequel which combines breathtaking suspense with humorous character development. (Literary Review)

As in Brian Jacques's popular Redwall series, the intertwining storylines, evil villain and intense action will keep young readers enthralled, but Shade is a more complex character than most Redwallian heroes. Shade's dangerous adventures make a memorable impact. (The Horn Book magazine)

capable of enthralling both 9-11s, as well as an older audience. (Achuka website)

Book Description

An exciting adventure story set in the air and on the high seas - complete with feisty hero and heroine, pirates, tropical islands, high-speed chases, narrow escapes and much more ...
