Absolutely charming and fun to read. Although it's not classified as a book for young adults, my 12-yr-old daughter and all of her friends read it and loved it. My daughter carried the book everywhere she went and couldn't put it down - and, that's a first! I'm a Patterson fan, and I cannot believe this is his work because it's so unlike anything else he has written. Excellent read for adults and "tweens." Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

A very good book, works great for any age level. This book goes on about a group of children who were experiments and how they have banded together to create their own family in the face of danger.

I really liked this book, but I felt that there was not enough back story, no explanations as to what happened to these bird kids, why they were experimented on, who their parents were, just tortuous hints that they were supposed to save the world. Also, after 400 plus pages of repeated escape and capture, I was a bit annoyed with the cliffhanger ending. I do realize this is a serial novel and I look forward to reading the rest of this series, an enjoyable, quick read, not just for teens!

Keep in mind, this was written for the younger set. That said, I think it was great - I read it through in one day. It's not like his adult books but I think it will go over well with younger readers.

Way better than I orginally thought. Although I had been a fan of Patterson for a while. I saw this book in the stores for years and really wasn't interested in another teen,magic type book, but needless to say it was Not Harry Potter-esque at all! These kids are the result of some weird ,wacky scientists experiments. They generated wings on these pre-teens, some in the womb of their unknown mothers. It's indicated that some the parents knew about the engineering of the wings before hand although it's not quite clear wether that is totally true or not. All in all, I can't wait to recieve book two and the other books in the series to see how it all gets wrapped up. I have faith in Patterson and maybe he will use his political powers in Hollywood to see a movie gets made it would be quite a relief from all the sequels hollywood is making now.
