About this deal

When I was ready to finally finish it, Patterson decided to add in one last little scene that made the novel better than it was. We're introduced to Kit and Frannie and the six bird children, mainly from Maximum aka Max's POV, when they fight evil forces and the press and the people who want them dead.

And when there are riflemen shooting at the kids, and they shoot down a plane (with a regular rifle, not an anti aircraft gun) and then when the kids fly down to confront the villain, suddenly the riflemen just disappear?Anyways I had picked it up to be used as a filler but 400 pages of sheer pain was something that now I need a book which should bail me out of what this one has given me :). But when the case involves the most extraordinary creatures ever to land on this earth, someone will ensure there is no happy ending. But there’s no doubt that sooner or later the evil Kane will have his quarry caged, now in the company of the beloved protectors on whom they’ve imprinted for life, and will be crowing over them as he contemplates his plans for what amounts to world domination. We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). He brings them all back to his lab where the leader of the children, Maximus has a final showdown with destiny.

Frannie and Kit miss the children as well and engage in a courtroom battle to regain custody of the children. Frannie O’Neill’s life turned upside down when she and FBI maverick Kit Brennan rescued six incredible winged children from the school that created them. The tagline on the cover 'Don't read it alone in your home' is utterly pointless, and I think it means because if you were alone you'd have no-one to rant at about the book's failings. When I chose this book for a quick pre-vacation read I was not expecting the "supernatural" and was really in the mood for a typical mystery Patterson novel. A few days later, the reporter is murdered in her home, and soon after that several gunmen try to kidnap Max and her little brother Matthew.

A twelve-year-old girl named Max and five other incredible children have powers we can only dream of. He is the creator of unforgettable characters and series, including Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Jane Effing Smith, and Maximum Ride, and of breathtaking true stories about the Kennedys, John Lennon, and Princess Diana, as well as our military heroes, police officers, and ER nurses. but again may be that is what these days people like to read in the name of racy futuristic thrillers, no ways he is my cup of tea. For example, the children all "run" away to live in the woods and eat grubs just to get away from regular human society. THE LAKE HOUSE, is a fascinating thriller starring six unusual children whom capture the hearts of the audience as they try to make a place for themselves in this BRAVE NEW WORLD.

I didn’t like his narration at all in that audiobook, and I think I described his reading as “wooden. And they keep alluding to horrors that went on at a hospital, and 'secrets' and you expect there to be some crazy secret exposure but you already know what the secret is all along. Indeed, the novel does double duty as a survival manual, packed full of good advice—for instance, try not to get wounded, for “injury turns you from a giver to a taker.All the way through I was thinking of Joseph Mengale and the evil that men do and suddenly its not so unbelievable. The judge decides that the children will remain living with their biological parents until an appeal hearing is made.
