In the waning days of the dinosaurs, a new world emerges. Dusk is different from the other chiropters in his colony. While they glide to get from tree to tree, Dusk has the urge-and, he soon discovers, the ability-to actually fly. As the leader's son, he is protected for a time, but his father asks him to suppress his unusual talent to avoid being shunned- or worse. Then a new threat emerges, when a group of felids, led by Carnassial, stops eating only fruit, roots, and grubs to become predators. Black-andwhite illustrations. Author's note.
