Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Before there were bats like Shade, Marina or even Goth, there was a young chiropter—a small arboreal glider—named Dusk. Unlike other chiropters, who can only glide down from their colony’s home in a giant sequoia tree, Dusk can actually fly, a skill that makes him an outcast. But when Carnassial, a felid, and one of the world’s first mammalian carnivores, leads a savage massacre of the chiropters, Dusk’s strange ability transforms him into the colony’s saviour.
    CBA Children’s Author of the Year (2006) and winner of the Governor General’s Award, Kenneth Oppel, takes readers back 65 million years to a time of upheaval, as the last saurians fall and mammals rise. A thrilling story of dangers and dark secrets, heroes and terrifying villains, backed up by natural history made all the more incredible by its reality, Darkwing is a blockbuster adventure.
