Publisher's Summary

James Patterson's explosive debut in the young adult market is guaranteed to create legions of new fans for this beloved, multimillion-selling author. Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, Angel, and Maximum: Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways, except that they're 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in cages, living like rats, but now they're free. Riding the wind, their wings are an amazing gift...and yet, their world can morph into a nightmare in a single instant. For when the bloodthirsty Erasers, half men, half-wolves genetically engineered by sick and sinister scientists, kidnap little Angel, the Flock embarks on a rescue mission that will change them forever. From Death Valley, California, to the bowels of the New York City subway system, 14-year-old Max leads her five feisty "family" members on a journey full of nonstop action, adventure, and soul-seeking, not to mention a little bit of saving the world on the side!

Very Entertaining

This is probably one of the most entertaining audiobooks I've heard since the Harry Potter series. Read amazingly well by the young lady. Maybe more for the teens/young adults. Wonderful!!! Highly suggest.

So Disappointed

I LOVE James Patterson! I have read everything he's written. I very much enjoyed THE LAKE HOUSE along with the other book about the bird children. However, this one falls far short. Patterson should have kept the same characters with their same background. How can he think we can read this after the other two books when he has changed the characters and their backgrounds so drastically! This story is so disappointing that I will not continue listening to this audible book. The girl doing the reading is a disappointment as well.
