From the Inside Flap
Is this Paradise the fulfillment of Nocturna's Promise to return the bats to the light of day? Shade and his Brightwing friend Marina aren't so sure. Shade has seen Humans enter the forest and take away hundreds of sleeping bats for an unknown purpose. And where is Shade's father?
It isn't long before Shade and Marina are swept up on a perilous journey that takes them to the far southern jungle -- the homeland of Goth, now king of all the Vampyrum Spectrum: cannibal bats with three-foot wingspans. With the help of an abandoned owl prince and General Cortez's rat army, Shade must use all his resourcefulness to find his father -- and stop Goth from harnessing the dark powers of Cama Zotz to create eternal night.
In this thrilling continuation of Shade's saga, Kenneth Oppel recaptures the adventure and poignancy of Silverwing, which Smithsonian magazine called, "a tour-de-force fantasy", and takes it to a new level of excitement.

BTW, I am not afraid to admit that I am an adult, and not a "young-adult" anymore, both of these books are great and I recommend them to my adult friends as well as students. :)
I loved everything in this book, and would recommend it to people who are interested in action and adventure type books.
