I'm a 13 year old guy and I've been longing to write a novel. My goal is to become a somewhat of a YA sci-fi/thriller author. I know i CAN do this if I keep revising. Just how Nancy Yi Fan inspired me to write a novel and get it published, I hope to be influential to kids and teens of all backgrounds and to just let them know that if they really wanted to then they can write a novel. 8)

This is a great book if you love adventure and birds. This book is such a standout. Even if it wasn't writen by a twelve year old. (Which it was) Nancy is a great young writer's role model. My twelve year old daughter wants to be just like Nancy. A young New York Times best seller.

Nancy Yi Fan was 11 when she started the book, 12 when it was published, so it makes sense that she wrote a story that is almost perfect for the 9-12 age range. Though at times the writing style is very simplistic, the plot is good. The story follows several groups of birds- slaves, soldiers, and feuding forest birds- as they struggle with the tyranny of Turnatt the hawk. In the book you'll find battles, quests, and sacrifice as the followers of Swordbird's ways fight the cruel and power-hungry bird of Fortress Glooming. The story has some gruesome but not graphic components, so even the squeamish readers can enjoy it. It would definitely make a good summer read for those not quite ready for the Redwall series yet. Also, I found this book to be better than its prequel (Sword Quest), so if you read Sword Quest and weren't quite satisfied, give this book a try.

I will admit, this book isn't all I thought it would be. Although Nancy's story was entertaining, some of the scenes were to brief or easy. And the battles were to simple and not as realistic. I do like the descriptions though. Nancy made the scenes feel real. I wish she could have taken that and applied it to the conversations. The characters were very interesting and colorful. Nancy has been a real inspiration to me though, I am now writing my own story.

When my mom brought me this book i started to read it right away I was hooked I couldn't put it down! I was amazed at what she did and it inspired me to start to write many stories about animals myself! Genevieve age 9

I read it when I was the same age as the age Nancy Yi Fan was when she wrote it and I'm not much older now. I think the story was wonderful and created a different picture about how people care about animals like birds that are put in risk. Although it was fiction, it still told the reader a message. I would love to read another book written by Nancy.
