Maximum Ride isn’t a normal girl. She’s not a normal human. Nope, she has wings, a killer survival instinct, and an attitude– and she’s only 14! Not only that, but she takes care of five other people who make up “the Flock” (human-bird hybrids with wings like her) and is burdened with the responsibility of saving the world. I think she takes it very well. Her family isn’t exactly perfect what with a blind Iggy, enigmatic Fang, loquacious Nudge, and the mischievous twins Gazzy and Angel.
Opening with an immediate action sequence is a great way to get into my good graces, and James Patterson delivers a doozy right off the bat.
In this novel, Angel is abducted. Angel is the youngest Flock member who has the ability to read and manipulate minds. When the Flock are ambushed by a new hybrid-species created by the School called Erasers (an uglier version of werewolves if you will, but in no means supernatural– more like genetically engineered), the Erasers take Angel hostage back to the terrible School for more testing. And from there, the story kicks into high-action-gear and I'm turning the pages as fast as I can to find out what happens.
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
