FirewingBook - 2002
Firewing, Kenneth Oppel's latest adventure novel in the megaselling series, should carry a warning: "Do not open unless prepared to consume the entire novel in one sitting." It's that good a story, one that will capture readers--adults definitely included--from the very first words. The tale of Griffin, whose feelings of inadequacy stem from his formidable parentage (he's the son of the heroic Shade and Marina, stars of Silverwing and Sunwing) and his unusual hybrid silver-and red-streaked fur, Firewing plunges the reader into Oppel's richly imagined world of adventure and fantasy.
Here are all of the familiar elements that have made the series a winner: a feisty new hero who must come to terms with his heritage and his self-doubts; a truly evil but entirely believable foe in the form ofGoth, the Vampire bat; and a story that swoops and soars to exciting new heights. Firewing is a guaranteed hit.
