Product Description


"The latest young adults' thriller from James Patterson continues the gripping Maximum Ride series" -- 5 Stars Star Magazine "The first in a series from adult-thriller writer Patterson has all the characteristics of his work for grown-ups: pace, action, mystery and cool... sharp and punchy with plenty of jokes and shocks. And it proves that girls can be tough, too" The Sunday Times "Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... There's no stopping his imagination" New York Times Book Review "Nonstop action carries this page-turner breathlessly from start to finish... Speed, suspense, excitement" Kirkus Reviews "MAXIMUM RIDE is a fast-paced, action-packed fantasy adventure that children will love" Age, Melbourne

Product Description

Max Ride and her best friends have always had one another's backs. No. Matter. What. Living on the edge as fugitives, they never had a choice. But now they're up against a deadly force that's racing across the globe, and just when they need him the most--Fang is gone. He's creating his own gang that will replace everyone--including Max.

Max is heartbroken over losing Fang, her soul mate. Her closest friend. But with Dylan ready and willing to fight by her side, and she can no longer deny that his incredible intensity draws her in. Max, Dylan, and the rest of their friends must soon join forces with Fang and his new gang for an explosive showdown in Paris that's unlike anything you've ever imagined . . . or read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting somewhat science fiction tale Jan. 27 2011
By Israel Drazin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kindle offers the first 23 chapters of this novel free. It is about Maximum Ride, called Max, a fifteen year old girl with unique leadership abilities and her friend Angel, a girl of seven with powers to sense the presence of people coming toward her before they can be seen and the ability to read minds. Both, along with others, were manufactured in a laboratory by combining human and bird DNA. Max's boyfriend Fang flew off and very handsome Dylan is using the opportunity to establish a relationship with her. Dylan was engineered to love Max.

Max is told that other beings were created since the batch that produced her, that the current human civilization will end and the new beings need her as a leader, and since she will die someday she needs to produce children with her abilities who will lead the survivors after her death.

Several things happen. Fang assembles a group of other creatures and is trying unsuccessfully to lead them. He feels that Max is not the only person who can lead the world. One of the new beings that is created is Max II, who Fang is overly attracted to. A group called Doomsday is formed with the goal to take over the world and clean it to accept their views.

Will Max and Fang join efforts? Will they or one of them discover the Doomsday plot? Who will assume leadership of the world? Will Max agree to bear children?

1.0 out of 5 stars Just...Just Stop. Right Now. Jan. 16 2011
By FangIsFexcellent - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
James Patterson, kill it dead.

Just stop. Please.

The first three books? Amazing. Absolutely famazing. They were my favorite book series ever. Ever. In the whole world. The fourth book? Horridly disappointing. The fifth? Alright. The sixth? Worst book I've ever read.

This one may beat out the sixth, though.

The OOC is through the roof. Fang's first scene, frankly--straight of the most cliche mob movie you can get. All of his new flock? They scream Mary Sue. The whole thing feels like a fanfiction, and I can't believe that this author has the nerve to publish an abomination like this. I used to love him. Now I'm just....I have no words.

This is coming from a fifteen-year-old. The audience he is targeting with these books. I just cant believe this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the Book, Hate how the excerpt ends. Jan. 14 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book so far, very good and intriguing, but where the story ends maked me wanna pull my out. I like how Patterson goes back and forth between Max and Fang. We get to see what he's up to with his new pseudo flock, while keeping in touch with Max and The Flock. But what I hate is how we barley see The Flock in action, Dylan, what Fang's doing with his fake-flock, Dylan, how Iggy has pretty much TWO lines in the book so far, and DYLAN. Oh, and I hate how JP's pusing the whole Dax (Dylan and Max) relationship a little too much. And I hate Dylan, he's too perfect, even Max said it once. Overall, the book's interesting enough, and I will definatly be buying it as soon as it hits shelves. I HIGHLY recomend you get the excerpt, its free isnt it?

-Imani M.

p.s. I. Hate. DYLAN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum Suspense Jan. 31 2011
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I love these book! I have read all of them, and I love them! This book (so far) is really good. I dont know who Max is going to pick... but I hope it is Fang. Dylan is horrible, and I cant imagine him and Max "breeding". Dylan is just a mindless magnet that follows Max around. He doesnt really do anything. Fang is amazing and he is Max`s right wing man. They are made for eachother! Love this book though!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars what happened to the old max,fang and angel? Feb. 20 2011
By LumosCat - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
in the first threebooks was awesome,and angel was an angel. In the next three angel was a backstabbing traitor and max became an environmentalist. Now in angel angel is angelic again but max is a romantic fool. and fang obviously only likes max because she's hot and not because of who she is. Dylan and Maya should get together(the clones unite)and Max should be with fang. Then the series will be back on track.I hope that this happens in the rest of angel.This part was a little hard to follow. explosiona usually arebecause they are so graphic.
