About The Book

A small bat’s curiosity leads to an action-packed odyssey in the acclaimed Silverwing trilogy from Kenneth Oppel, now available as a collectible boxed set.

Shade is a young silverwing bat, the runt of his colony, and he’s determined to prove himself on the long, dangerous winter migration to Hibernaculum. But when a fierce storm separates Shade from his colony, he soon faces the most incredible journey of his young life—and that journey is just the beginning of an epic trilogy of adventure, wonder, and suspense.

Ideal for fans of Tolkien and fantasy, this boxed set includes paperback editions of Silverwing, Sunwing, and Firewing.
