Publisher's Summary

Six extraordinary children are trying to lead normal lives in the Rocky Mountain countryside. They live in different homes, with different families, but there is something powerful that connects them. Something that puts them in terrible danger.

The only time they've ever felt safe was when they were together in the waterfront cabin they call the Lake House. And the only people they've ever trusted are Frannie and Kit, the couple who rescued them from unimaginable evil once before.

When that evil resurfaces, the kids reconnect with Frannie and Kit and set off on an astonishing adventure. They flee to the Lake House, but even that haven may no longer be safe.

Dr. Ethan Kane is chief of surgery at Liberty Hospital, one of the most esteemed hospitals in the nation. It is here that terrible secrets lie, secrets that will change the world for all of us.

©2003 James Patterson; (P)2003 Time Warner AudioBooks. A division of the AOL Time Warner Book Group.

    "What a piece of Guano"

    Like the other reviewers, I felt compelled to write about how amazingly terrible this book is. While the plot is outlandish, a good author good have suspended disbelief. I've read Patterson before and can't believe he actually authored this nonsense. The readers didn't bother me but the writing did. This is little better than a junior high extended essay. I can't say don't judge a book by its cover but, his other book, "The Beach," also seems to have virtually the same cover which tells you something about what the publisher thinks.

    "I Liked It"

    I think it was a good story. I listen to books on tape to and from work and it was something I could listen to and keep my mind off the idiot drivers.

    "Touching"

    Despite this being a sci-fi, the story was touching and imaginative. You will enjoy this if you can turn loose of the current definition of reality and "go with the flow" in this book. I couldn't stop listening.

    "Did Patterson really write this?"

    Until now, I have always enjoyed James Patterson. The plot is repetitious after "When The Wind Blows", the dialogue is laughable and the ending predictable. A total waste of my time.

    Story
    "A good conclusion to "When the Wind Blows""

    I saw a lot of negative reviews on this book and am not sure why. This book wasn't that bad. Yes it's a bit far fetched (I hope). I did enjoy this book I was however disturbed that Max who is 12 and Oz who is 10 or 11 were having a sexual relationship. I get that they are bird children and age differently than us but it really creeped me out and I did not like it. If you have read the first book in this duo you should definitely read this one for the conclusion. If you don't like it you can always return it and get your credit back.

    "Weird Ending"

    James Patterson has such wonderful books and I was surprised at the ending. It was like the end of the story just stopped. The point was certainly made that the Doctor killed at the end of the story was the clone, which appears later. It was just a weird ending for a James Patterson book

    "Fascinating"

    The sequel to "When the Wind Blows," the thesis is fascinating. The evil doctor seeks to save the world by enhancing select humans. He sees the winged children as a threat...I guess that sets up the tension. And, it engages the reader as two sci-fi themes unfold. This book should be read AS a sequel. BTW, my copy is 13+03 hours and the book started to repeat only certain parts--I believe something went wrong with the download.
