Listener Opinions

    " A fun read for this book in this series by Kenneth Oppel. Griffin, Shade's son, gets into some trouble and his father must save him. Griffin is a lot like his father and has a lot of courage in this struggle of Gods in the underworld. I definitely liked this the least of all of the books in the series so far, but it was still pretty good. Definitely a fan of Kenneth Oppel. "

    " Another great adventure with Kenneth Oppel's bat family. It was a far more somber tale but with all the excitement and interest of the first two books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/4/2011

    " I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I'd read the preceding books in the series as I felt like I was missing out a bit. I still enjoyed it though and if I saw other books in this series I'd read them. It had some interesting ideas and the characters were likeable and easy to relate to. "

    " A very dark and frightening book which takes the bats through the underworld. not reccomended for children who cry often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Makayla | 9/15/2010
