|Angel says that Fang will be the first to die, and Angel is never wrong. Maximum Ride is used to living desperately on the run from evil forces sabotaging her quest to save the world--but nothing has ever come as close to destroying her as this horrifying prophetic message. Fang is Max's best friend, her soul mate, her partner in the leadership of her flock of winged children. A life without Fang is a life unimaginable. When a newly created winged boy, the magnificent Dylan, is introduced into the flock, their world is upended yet again. Raised in a lab like the others, Dylan exists for only one reason: he was designed to be Max's perfect other half. Thus unfolds a battle of perfection versus passion that terrifies, twists, and turns . . . and meanwhile, the apocalypse is coming . [BB1]thin spaces around em-dash Being a kid with wings--constantly on the run--has never been easy, and Max and her flock are getting tenser than ever. First, on a trip to Africa, they meet a mysterious billionaire whose intense scrutiny of the flock makes her fear the worst. Then, a cryptic message from a young girl arrives, warning them "The sky will fall." And as if an impending apocalypse weren't bad enough, canny birdkid Angel makes a dire prophecy about Max's soul mate:Fang will be the first to die. Max's desperate desire to protect Fang brings the two closer than ever. But can the team weather the storm, or will the turmoil rip them apart for the last time? Max and the Flock are flying high over Africa , but this time they're not alone. A sky full of cargo planes accompanies the team as they bring much-needed aid to the continent's poverty stricken regions. Among the volunteers is the mission's benefactor--the mysterious billionaire, Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen. Max is intrigued by his generosity, but there's also something about him--and his intense scrutiny of the Flock--that makes her nervous. But Dr. Hans isn't the only puzzling thing about their trip. The Flock also receives a cryptic message from a young girl, who tells them, "The sky will fall." Max and the Flock are ready to return home, still unable to make sense of her statement. But the surprises don't end with their departure, and something unbelievably momentous shakes up the Flock--pushing Max and Fang closer than ever. Will the team be able to stick together through the chaos?|

FLYING HIGH ... FANG !
James Patterson returns with the next chapter in the hugely successful Maximum Ride series; Fang. Returning for this adventure is the characters we all know and love. Introduced in this book is a new character and winged kid called Dylan. Introducing a new story that will be interesting to follow in future novels. Time is changing the flock and it is very noticeable in this book. Filled with past characters and adding new intrigue for the present. I absolutely enjoyed this novel and continuation of the flock. Wish I could fly high on this adventure. The ending was shocking and making me want more ! I loved the new story arc introduced in this book and can't wait until the next novel. Enjoyed seeing the characters changing and growing, but still enjoy each and everyone of them in there unique winged way. How each and everyone of them adds a little something to the gang. Of course, Maximum is still Patterson's key figure in this series, I really enjoy her quest in saving the world and of her watching her relationship grow with Fang. Everything a Maximum Ride novel should have was in this book. LOVED IT !
Bought it for my granddaughter and she of course, loved it. She loves all of Patterson's books. She has read the entire collection of Maximum Ride books and reread them over and over again. She was a little disappointed in the ending, but she believes there will be another book to end it the way she would like it to. At least she hopes so.
Gotta finish the story
I agree with some reviews on Amazon, that the initial books were stronger. On the other hand, if you've been following the story from the beginning, you want some type of closure with the characters. This gives "some" closure. For me, I realized part way through, that the storyline is obviously aimed at younger readers. Being a sci-fi/fantasy fan I thought I'd give it a shot anyway. I think I'm finally done with the series.
