Part X-Men, part X-Files. Part adult thriller, part childrens' fantasy. Buckle up before you hop on this wild ride.
At first, I thought Patterson had finally lost it and decided to try his hand at science fiction. However, as I read further, this realistic-fictional story became a page turner rather quickly. The questions this story raised in my mind about the manipulation of human DNA to serve an evil purpose, not only made my skin crawl but forced me to bring this possibility to a conscious level for which I'd rather not. This story made me think while it kept me on the edge of my seat.
I really enjoyed this book. The storyline is pretty creepy but not far fetched.
I was not sure of this book, my mom reccommended it to me and I have since read all 3. This is a wonderful can't put down book.
For those of you who read Maximum Ride, this is the first book that begins the ride. In usual Patterson form, it will keep you guessing until the end, it's a great read.
