Shade is a young Silverwing bat, a runt. He starts out on the annual journey to Hibernaculum, the location of their hibernation caves, but gets caught in a storm along the way. He meets Marina, a solitary Brightwing bat, and Goth and Throbb, large jungle bats, who accompany him as he finds his way to Hibernaculum. He must decide which of them are friends or enemies, and who he will put his trust in. For more information, go here.
