As in Brian Jacques's popular Redwall series, the intertwining storylines, evil villain and intense action will keep young readers enthralled, but Shade is a more complex character than most Redwallian heroes. Shade's dangerous adventures make a memorable impact. ( The Horn Book magazine - on SILVERWING and SUNWING)

SUNWING (is a) truly spell-binding sequel (which) combines breathtaking suspense with humorous character development. ( Literary Review - SILVERWING and SUNWING)
