Description

"Three cheers! Max is one of the smartest, strongest, funniest heroines around." - Diane Garrett, Diane's Books

In this breathtaking new story from the astonishing imagination of James Patterson, a girl has to save herself from an army assembled just to capture her-and maybe save the planet while she's at it.

Maximum Ride is a perfectly normal teenager who just happens to be able to fly, the result of an out-of-control government experiment. Max and the other members of the Flock-six kids who share her remarkable ability-have been asked to aid a group of environmental scientists studying the causes of global warming. The expedition seems like a perfect combination of adventure, activism-and escaping government forces who watch the Flock like a hawk.

But even in , trapped in the harshest weather on our planet, Maximum Ride is an irresistible target in constant danger. For whoever controls her powers could also control the world . . . Maximum Ride is James Patterson's greatest character, a heroine who manages to be human and fearless at once. THE FINAL WARNING is an unrelenting new adventure from the writer Time magazine has called "The Man Who Can't Miss."

A JAMES PATTERSON FAMILY PAGETURNER

In the spirit of the most enduring hit movies and books, James Patterson has written this story for readers from ten to a hundred and ten. Special care has been taken with the language and content of THE FINAL WARNING.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 16, 2009 – The fifth entry in Patterson's all-ages Maximum Ride fantasy/thriller series finds the teenaged title character facing her greatest challenge yet. Max, leading her flock of virtually indestructible part-human/part-bird hybrids, must rescue her human mom, kidnapped by a criminal mastermind with an elaborate plan to wreak worldwide ecological catastrophe. But in order to rescue her, 14-year-old Max and the five younger members of her flock (genetically developed by an environmental group) must team up with the U.S. Navy to determine why millions of fish are dying off the coast of Hawaii. All this, and Max is falling in love, too. Patterson doesn't spend much time on character development, opting to propel his wild story with quick action scenes, plenty of dialogue and chapters seldom longer than three or four pages; unfortunately, though, life-and-death situations are often solved by implausible plot turns. Max narrates with a precocious, snarky voice, but makes it relatively easy to jump into her complicated tale midstream. Not surprisingly, the open-ended conclusion begs for a follow-up; it's also little wonder that a movie franchise is in the works.

Customer Reviews

Shorter but still good!!!

This installment is considerably shorter than the books in the series leading up to it. But with that said it's still an excellent read. Looking forward to seeing what happens next, but starting to wonder if the series is taking a turn towards being propaganda on global warming as it took center stage in this book.

Not great 

This is the only book in the series I'm disappointed with. It was an advertisement to stop global warming. The other books are great though, so read them at all costs.

The final warning

I love ll the bird kids books...... Unfortunately this one I only liked. It wasn't as captivating to me as the others but I can't wait for the next installment! Please don't take this wrong... It was a very good book I just preferred the others to this one. But it's only one womans opinion .
