The book being a lethal combination of poor research, insulting language, and pretentious plot, was one I could not finish. Man, I was so excited about this book when I saw the cover, but there is reason they tell you not to judge a book that way The plot is fine, a tiny swallow ends up being the key figure in a a war between Boston s songbirds and an invading group of raptors The book flap describes it as a re imagining of the classic hero story set in the city of Boston.What went wrong First of all, I think I can count on two hands the number of adjectives in the book Everything is driven by dialogue with some action thrown in between I think it s trying to be fast paced but it just comes across as lacking For a book with all birds as characters, we learn very little about the types of birds portrayed There are pictures of the different types of birds at the head of each chapter, but no key to the pictures and no descriptions within the book If you don t already know what they all look like you are going to have to find out for yourself.Lastly, the names just drove me crazy Half of them a taken from Norse mythology, and half are just random words or a combination of letters.if you know a kid already obsessed with birds this is probably a great book, but otherwise it s for the birds Yuk yuk. I read this book since my younger brother owns it It s simplistic vocabulary is for the younger generation and I enjoyed it for a simple quick reading I don t see the point in rating it based on other mature books since it was written for the teens and below Besides, my brother really enjoyed reading it. Ragtag is a young swallow who belongs to the Feathered Alliance, a group of various birds dedicated to living in peace in the city of Boston When a large group of strong, evil birds members of the Talon Empire are forced to leave their homes due to human destruction of their land, they decide to take over Boston If the Feathered Alliance does not surrender to the Talon Empire, they are told, they will be killed but surrender is not an option for the Feathered Alliance They bravely decide to face the Talon Empire to fight for their freedom.Because the Feathered Alliance is made up of swallows, pigeons, mockingbirds, and other small birds, they know that it s not going to be easy to defeat the Talon Empire, which is made up of hawks, falcons, ospreys, and When the Feathered Alliance s leader is killed, Ragtag can hardly believe that other members look to him to take over especially when he was once viewed as an outcast Will he be able to lead the alliance to victory This is a story full of suspense that is told entirely from Ragtag s perspective Readers are right along with him as he flies through the air and through the Boston Public Library and fights other birds Suggest this book to anyone who enjoys animals and a good battle.
