Long before the first migration, there raged a great battle between the Birds and the Beasts. The Bats, being neither, would not choose sides. For this, a law was passed that forever condemned the bats into darkness. One teenage bat dared to break this law...
Shade Silverwing is an undersized teenage bat whose bravado sets in motion a personal odyssey set
against an adventure of epic proportions. Shade's act of rebellion results in a premature migration and
puts his whole colony in grave danger. He does not realise that he's set off a chain of events which threaten the forest's fragile peace.
At his lowest, loneliest point he meets Marina Brightwing, another teenage outcast, rejected by her colony because she wears a human's band. The two embark on a perilous, action-packed journey in hopes of reuniting Shade with his colony. Along the way Shade comes to terms with his unique abilities which he must harness in order to save his colony from evil False Vampire Bats and avert the
next Great Battle.
