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.

Another great addition to the series!! Jammed packed with action, there is never a dull moment in Max’s life. I love this series! As always it is difficult to review these because I don’t want to give away the story and ruin the adventure for you.
Max is amazing with her strength and not giving up her morals even though they are seen as deficits. Unfortunately, her flock suffers an even bigger betrayal and more unusually things that confuse Max. She always seems to have more questions than answers. At times, it really doesn’t seem fair what Max and her flock have to go through. I would hope people in the real world wouldn’t allow kids to be experiments and test subjects because they are not property. This is an exciting series that I will definitely continue reading :) Can’t wait to start the next book!!
I highly recommend graphic novels/manga for all your reluctant readers and your kids who are very visual. I also think they are a great break in between books or filler when you don’t have time to read a full novel.
