This is the best book since the Harry Potter series! It was very suspenseful, and I could not wait to see what happened next. Shade, a young and very curious bat, gets separated from his colony while migrating to hibernacleum. Shade meets Marina,a brightwing, and Goth,a vampire bat,while trying to find his colony and discover the secret of the metal bands. He had to try to find out who were his friends and who were his foes. I hope everyone has a chance to read this wonderful book!
