Format: Paperback
Setting:
(3/5) The Flock stayed in the School for a while in this volume and I liked that we got to explore it a bit and learn more about it as well as ITEX.

Story:
(4/5) I enjoyed this volume far more than the previous one. The plot felt less hectic to me, although there were revelations that came out of no where, as always. It's safe to say that you can't really guess what will happen next with this series. We also finally find out what the School and ITEX's plans are, although there are a lot of things that are still a mystery (as usual) - like the voice in Max's head (ahh it's annoying me, what is it!).

Artwork:
(5/5)

Main Character:
(5/5) Max seems to be realizing her feelings for Fang in this volume. It's also odd to note that Max wants to save the world. I mean, I understand why she wants to do it, but it seems like she's being played by the higher-ups. Instead of trying to save the world, she should try to stop them.

Characters:
(5/5)

Angel: It's been hinted in the previous volumes that Angel is more devious than she seems. In this volume, we finally get to the bottom of that, although the ending left it unclear once again.

Fang: There is some progress with Max and Fang's relationship. I think it's pretty clear that they care for one another (romantically). What makes their romantic relationship interesting is that even if they weren't interested in each other romantically they'll always mean something to each other and will always have the strong bond all the Flock members have with one another.

Ari: I felt really sad for Ari in this volume. He was always shown as an antagonist, a villain, but Ari is being used just like the Flock with no regard to him as a person.

See above! I had read the novels long ago and it was interesting to see visuals. They were fun to see!

Amazing- As Always Dec 26 2011
By Victoria Sunderman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love Vol. 5 of this series just as much as all the others. The art is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G as in all of the other volumes, and the story line is close to the original books-which I like. My only problem is that I wish it could be a bit longer- and maybe cut out the super-long unwanted Daniel X preview? Otherwise, I recommend it!

Wish I Waited To Buy This... Dec 6 2011
By Ace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the firsts to find out this book was being sold on the 1st! Anyways, this book was alright. Shipping was REALLY good, arrived in 4 days... not bad, but it was probably because I ordered it when it was first being sold. Ok, now back to business. Firstly, this book, wasn't really that good. Not as good as I hoped. When I finished it the first thing I did was sigh, put the book on the table and said "Well, I'm done." nothing like I did in the previous books like, "My god... that was good!" or "Awww! I'm Done?!" Anyways halfway through the book everything gets confusing. You'll be like: "Wait? Whaaat?" like I was. Sooo in summary... I'd say.... "ehhh." So if I were you... *sigh* I'd wait 'till the book comes out in the library unless your despret. Nothing important really happened in this book. I hate to say it but... I'm a bit disappointed, and I wish I hadn't bought this. Should've saved my money. Patience is key, and I didn't have any at the moment I bought this :P Buy it if ya wanna. If I offended anybody, then sorry bout that, but hey. It's just my oppinon ;P

I enjoyed this volume more than the previous March 10 2013

Ari: I felt really sad for Ari in this volume. He was always shown as an antagonist, a villain, but Ari is being used just like the Flock with no regard to him as a person. I really want him to join the Flock, it will be interesting to see how they interact with one another if he did.

Dr. Martinez and Ella: They both appear once again, which I'm glad for. The Flock seems to have enemies everywhere and I'm glad they have allies as well, otherwise this series is going to get tedious real fast.

Originality:
(2/5) ITEX's plan was just, I don't know.. extreme? It seems like it's been done before and other villains had a similar plan. I don't see it often enough, which makes it a bit interesting, but it's still kind of ridiculous. It's becoming painfully clear that this series is just a mash up of overused ideas and concepts with no real originality except for the randomness and the shoving of all these overused things into one story.

Overall:
(24/30) I enjoyed this volume more than the previous because the plot felt less hectic and we finally had some insight on what the antagonists want.
Provoking, thoughtful series March 5 2013
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What if you woke up one day to find that everything you've experienced over the last several months was all a dream? Well, that's exactly what has happened to nearly the whole of the Flock. Right when Max's anxieties were getting to be their worst, what with an army of mechanical Erasers, Fang wanting to let the world be destroyed, Angel's betrayal, etc. Well, at least they spared her such a major headache.

Save for Angel, Max and all the others have been in an artificial dreamscape, created by --- you guessed it --- Jeb, Anne, and a man Max and Nudge had recently learned of in their research-within-a-dream, Roland Ter Bortsh. Itex has been experimenting on them to see if they would be of any use in the "new world" they intend to create. How would they create a new world, you ask? By killing at least half of the world's population!

Ari and Max share a couple of times together as the Flock are awaiting their execution, as Itex has no intention of keeping "useless beings" alive, having served their purpose as test subjects. He informs her of the impending fate Ter Bortsh is planning for humanity, as well as the fact that all of them have a built-in expiration date --- the only reason he is still alive is that his time is near, so they won't waste the resources killing him. The Flock, however, is slated for execution, and almost nothing can stop it.

Max, being who she is, will never give up when the lives of her family are at stake. The question is, then, is there anything she CAN do in this situation?

James Patterson's fifth installment of his brilliant fantasy series leaves off at a critical, pivotal point in the story's plot. The character design is charming, but still provokes negative emotions when dealing with the evil scientists out to destroy most of humanity.
