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.

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.

This was a quick, easy read with good characters. I gave it three stars. There are other books with Max in them and I may give them a try sometime.

A widowed veterinarian and a renegade FBI team don't know that they're on the same team. She's trying to find the strange girl she saw in the woods, the one with arms like wings. He's looking for the law-breaking doctors accused of unorthodox genetic testing. But the little girl in the woods isn't going to be found without a fight. And she isn't the only one with wings.

My mom first told me about this book. She liked it well enough, although she doesn't go in for the science fiction and fantasy so much. Also, James Patterson has rewritten the series for young adults, making Max and her five feathered friends the heroes. I think I might like that idea a little better. It was an interesting enough story but too many other aspects seemed to cloud the main plot. Yeah, we all feel bad about Kit's family dying in a plane crash but at what point does that make a difference to the plot?

There's a second book but I've been told it's just more of the same: running from the bad guys, the kids flying and being beautiful. Probably not going to bother. I might take a look at the young adult version...

Fast-paced, suspenseful, Patterson at his best.

This is atypical Patterson. I did not enjoy it. I do not like fairy tale type books in terms of a mystical element and this was filled with it. I have the second book in the series but I don't think I am interested

I was able to read this book in a weekend - it is one of those page turners that is hard to put down. Even though the plot is a bit unrealistic, the author makes you feel as though it could really happen.

If I could give this story more stars I would, loved every minute of it. Great start to the trilogy about Max.
