Too gory for little kids. Not a good night read.
Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2017
We purchased this after enjoying Silverwing, my 7 year old and I. However, this one went a little cray cray with graphic gore talk sprinkled without, one of the main characters talks frequently about eating the cute little bat's beating heart out alive. Also, it talks a lot about humans making little bats and owls into bombs, and obviously there are a lot of deaths from this. I'm not sure what the intended audience for this book was, I would say teen to adult, but what teen wants to read about a cute little runt bat? Otherwise, written well, it's a shame for the senseless gore.
