"An absorbing adventure story ... gripping" (Publishers Weekly)
I enjoyed learning about bats and the varieties I am with which I am unfamiliar.
However, I did find the beginnings low and almost put it down. I am glad I stuck with it.
I was in Shade's mind the entire book.
Bravo for not using color. I did not notice (which is the point) and a difficult task!
