The time has arrived for Max and her winged "flock" to face their ultimate enemy and discover their original purpose: to defeat the takeover of "Re-evolution", a sinister experiment to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race...and to terminate the rest. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel have always worked together to defeat the forces working against them--but can they save the world when they are torn apart, living in hiding and captivity, halfway across the globe from one another?

The bird kids are back! I know none of this is high brow writing or reading, but I really enjoy this series. This book was not the best, but I like that we got to learn more about Max (and so did she). The flock splits up, which made it a bit awkward, but seeing as I read this at the beach, I must say it was perfect beach reading. Short chapters that I could read and gaze at the water and not lose any of the story. Worth a read for bird kids fans :) Plus he writes this one himself it seems, the writing is less... forced.

Interesting book - a departure from Paterson's usual fare. It's definitely geared toward the younger readers - teens and tweens who like something familiar yet different. His characters have real-world issues common to many with the additional burden of being mutants. It's a good read; I'd recommend it for those who enjoy this genre.

Max and the flock are back. While she continues to keep the flock safe, she also has to figure out how she is supposed to save the world. The evil plan is days away from unfolding. Half of the people in the world are going to be killed in order to give the worthy ones that remain a chance to thrive. The human race has done such a poor job of taking care of the planet that the Itex Corporation decided only the people with something to offer deserve the right to live in it.

Another problem the flock is dealing with is the creation of an updated version of Erasers. Now made of metal and covered with a layer of skin, learning how to take them out takes a little time - especially since these "Flyboys" come equipped with guns!

Relationships are strained within the flock in this latest installment of the MAXIMUM RIDE saga. Fang continues to update his blog and attempt to enlist children from around the world to become involved with the fight against Itex and all its subsidiaries. Max doesn't have faith that kids can help, which, of course, causes friction between them and ultimately leads to a split in the group.

The reader is tugged along on a roller coaster ride adventure with Max's constant sarcastic commentary to guide them. We see familiar faces as well as meet brand new players in this deadly game. Max manages to thwart disaster, reconcile the flock, and discover the identity of her parents. James Patterson does a nice job of tying up loose ends and leaves the story with a satisfying ending. If there isn't a fourth installment, fans will be happy with the way Max and the rest of the flock land on their feet.

Book three of one of my favorite series! Patterson effectively combines a great deal of action with a storyline that pulls you in. There's even some romance to complete the typical YA definition. I devoured this book the first time I read it and knew I had to add it to my collection. Highly recommended!

I loved this entire series. As a retired, but not OLD, librarian I think that this is a great series for reluctant readers. Patterson wrote these books with his son in mind, who did not like to read. He also wanted to write a book that would span all age groups. It worked for me. I love the charactures. Max is my favorite Patterson person yet. I like her more than Alex Cross...and I loved Alex!! The concept of the books is a little strange. Dealing with children who were created in a lab and have a little bird dna thrown in with their human stuff...they hae wings...they fly...the each have other separated powers as well. HOWEVER, if you can look beyond "Bird Kids" and get caught up in the story, you will find yourself in a reading panic as you finish one book and wonder when the next will be coming in!!
