I was uncomfortable with Max and Oz's relationship in this book.....I prefer the YA series he wrote based on this story.
  AmieB7 | Jan 21, 2016 |
Nice follow up to his "When the Wind Blows," and served as a precursor to his Maximum Ride series. Also involves "avian" kids, but not related to the other series. ( )

Captivating novel of a family in which changing identities alter relationships. Children grow-up, young adults mature, and parents deal with change in different ways. This book shows us that the love between family members is always there, although its expression is altered with time and experience. Human vs. avian DNA. ( )

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. ( )

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.
