Overview

Firewing (Silverwing Series #3) by Kenneth Oppel, Troy Howell

The forest heaves and splits in a terrible quake, and Griffin, a newborn Silverwing bat, is sucked down a fissure deep into the earth. Shade, Griffin's father, soon realizes that his son has been drawn into the Underworld, and embarks on the most dangerous of journeys to rescue him. Shade knows he must find Griffin quickly — legend dictates that if the living stumble into the land of the dead, they have only a short time before death claims them, too. But something else is hunting Griffin — a deadly foe Shade hoped he would never see again. Who will find Griffin first? And who will survive to embark on the perilous journey back to the land of the living?

In this riveting companion to the acclaimed novels Silverwing and Sunwing, Kenneth Oppel creates a story that will resonate with readers of all ages — a glorious fantasy adventure in which the living and the dead struggle for the sake of eternity.

I absolutely LOVED Silverwing. It was my favorite book of all time. The ending was kinda cheesy but the rest kept me hooked. It was surprise, after surprise, after surprise! Sunwing was a little less great but the ending blew me away. I could not help but smile when I read the ending of Sunwing. It would've been the perfect ending for the series too. But then Firewing came along and it was gut-wrenching. I actually cried in several parts of the book. And it's not because it had a poor vocabulary. The ending was dreadful. If you've read the other two books, I recommend that you do NOT read this one. The ending will leave you hanging to nothing. There are several times in the ending where it hints to a new book but, evidentially, Oppel won't be writing one any time soon.

( I might make a bat rp.) When he came to, he saw a bat standing over him with golden fur. " Who are you?" Asked Darkness. "My name is auroura. What's yours?" "Darkness. I'm Darkness. Where am I?" The bat said "You are in the coloney of the goldenwings. You look pretty pale. Are you okay?" " im fine. All i need is water." " you're lucky you landed next to a lake." Darkness instantly flew upward. "Where?" " Over there" came the reply from behind some trees. He flew past the trees and gasped a little. All around the lake were animals drinking water, and some bats were there too. He spotted auroura and she signaled him to come over. Darkness landed beside here and noticed a couple bats staring at him. "Why are they staring at me like that?" Auroura chuckled. "They've never seen a bat as black as obsidion in daylight before." "Oh. But still, why are they staring at me?" Auroura sighed. "I told you- oh. Because they think you're wierd." Darkness glided to the banks of the lake and started licking the water. After a few seconds, he was done. "Done!" "You're hungry, aren't you," asked Auroura." Yes." Darkness flew off into the air to catch some bugs. He instantly heard a tiger moth and zoomed straight at the sound. He opened his jaws, then, at the last moment, lunged at the right, catching the moth. He chewed greedily at the moth flesh, savoring the flavor, then swallowed. When Auroura caught up with him, he was bragging that he caught 3 tiger moths, which was true. "Really?" Asked Auroura, her eyes wide open. " Awesome!" They flew back to the goldenwing coloney. " are you going to sleep here?" " yes," said Darkness. Darkness looked out and saw that the sawn was slowly rising from the horizon. " It's dawn. we have to go to sleep." " okay." Came the reply. Darkness found an empty spot in the branch next to Auroura and fell asleep instantly.

Guys, think about it, there has to be another book, becuse goth is still alive. I think that griffin should steal goths life and use it to bring shade back to life. WHOS WITH ME?! And just by the way, if the author accauly reads these comments, dont bother writting another book if shade isint in it, it would suck without him.

Not finished but it does not seem as good as silverwing and sunwing. Sunwing is the best at the end.

Firewing is in a tie with Silverwing for my favorite book in the series. It might be a little bit weird of me, but I thought that the ending was ok. I do wish that it was a tiny bit longer, and it is sad that Shade dies, but I thought that it was an interesting ending. It is a must-read! But you HAVE to read it in order, or it will be a little confusing.

Some people said that the ending was a cliff hanger but I don't think so. I think that the ending for Firewing was one of the best endings that a book could have. If Kenneth Oppel had described any more of the ending then it would have left you on a cliff hanger. I like that it didn't tell you that there was going to be another one because I hate waiting for the next book to come out. Overall, I loved the plot and would love it if there was another book coming out soon.
