City of the Dead – James Patterson & Mindy McGinnis ★★★★

Blurb; Hawk, the daughter of Maximum Ride, teams with her mother up to help save their beloved but dangerous city in this action-packed thriller.

For Hawk, being a hero weighs heavily on her wings. 

In the City of the Dead, life happens in the shadows. That’s why a war is brewing against an enemy no one can see. 

Hawk and Maximum Ride never back down from a conflict, or from each other, and they argue more than they agree.

But as the dead begin to outnumber the living, a mother’s experience and a daughter’s instinct can make one powerful arsenal. 

My Review; I absolutely love this series and their world, I hope it never ends. City of the Dead is book two in the Hawk series a spin off from the maximum ride series. All best read in order to make yourself familiar with the characters and their lives etc. An easy read, short chapters.

Again we are back with Hawk (Maximum rides daughter) but this time there is a plaque ongoing and her and her hybrid creatures are being blamed for bringing the virus to humans when that is not the case. (I do wonder where this idea came from hmmm. Maybe covid? As its his newest release? Anyway…) this soon leads to war human VS hybrids. With the help of her parents and others surely they’ll survive? Fix it? Reveal the truth? You’ll have to read it to find out. Fast paced. Page turner. War. Survival.

There’s one character in this book who started the rumour that hybrids where at fault for the virus and she is evil, nasty and wants to control the city. Did not like her at all. But with Hawk, her orphans and her parents flock coming to help surely they can beat anyone and anything together. Another brilliant read. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
