ToysToys by James Patterson & Neil McMahon
My rating: 4 and 1/2 of 5 stars

Book Blurb:
Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth possess super-human strength, extraordinary intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do--they're Elites, endowed at birth with the very best that the world can offer. The only problems in their perfect world: people, their toys, and the battle to save humanity. 
 
My review:
James Patterson
When it comes to James Patterson I am a fan. He writes fabulous mysteries, romance novels, young adult novels, and even science fiction. Plus he advocates getting your kids to read! What's not to love?   

 I confess I have read only a fraction of all the books he's written, but to quote Time Magazine, he is The Man Who Can't Miss! This time around he has teamed up with Neil McMahon (aka Daniel Rhodes) to write a science fiction thriller set in a dystopian society. This is my first Neil McMahon novel, but now I just might have to check out some of his others!

Elites are genetically enhanced beings who are 99% human. As the name would suggest they consider themselves to be far superior to humans who, in their opinion, have destroyed the Earth. Humans are mere pests now. 
Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth are not only Elites, they are the creme dela creme of society, having even come to the notice of the President for their work with the Agency of Change. The problem is that when Hays is injured trying to apprehend a gang of murderous humans, he find out that he, his wife, and his world are not quite what he thought they were.

This is a thrill ride from start to finish. Twists and turns abound. Like most Patterson books it has the very short chapters which makes it a fast read. 

I love Patterson's Alex Cross series, the Women's Murder Club series, and the Maximum Ride series. He really CAN'T miss in my book.
