Booklist - 06/01/2020 Scrappy, orphaned Hawk can’t remember her past, except for a few hazy memories of her vanished parents, so when a prisoner in the penitentiary next door begins dredging up eerily familiar secrets, Hawk’s turbulent life spirals out of control. Written for a new generation of Maximum Ride fans, this post-apocalyptic fantasy features the remains of New York as the City of the Dead, a violent sprawl of death traps, masses brainwashed by potent street drugs, and alleys crawling with bloodthirsty thugs. Patterson deftly weaves the two stories of young, sailor-mouthed Hawk and fan-familiar mythical revolutionary “Max” Ride as they embark on quests to free the city and people they love from the heinous, Big Brother–like McCallum and his cronies. Fit among a colorful array of creepy characters, violent fights, and experiments on child “lab rats” is a tale of two brave, winged women attempting to unravel family secrets and find a sense of belonging in a cruel, dangerous world. Fans will indulge in this race toward inevitable peace or annihilation—or one by way of the other.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Now that he's a fixture in children's literature, expect Patterson's return to the Maximum Ride universe to soar to even greater heights than before. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
