Maximum Ride Series by James Patterson -- A Recommendation

The Angel Experiment...Book 1
WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE Do not put this book down. I’m dead serious – your life could depend on it. I’m risking everything by telling you – but you need to know.

STRAP YOURSELF IN for the thrill ride you’ll want to take again and again! From Death Valley, California, to the bowels of the New York City subway system, you’re about to take off on a heart-stopping adventure that will blow you away…
YOUR FAITHFUL COMPANIONS: Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman and Angel. Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways – except that they’re 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in a lab, living like rats in cages, but now they’re free. Aside, of course, from the fact that they’re prime prey for Erasers – wicked wolf-like creatures with a taste for flying humans.THE MISSIONS: Rescue Angel from malicious mutants. Infiltrate a secret facility to track down the flock’s missing parents. Scavenge for sustenance. Get revenge on an evil traitor. And save the world. If there’s time.

School’s Out Forever...Book 2
AND THAT’S NOT ALL! Max is sure that a microchip’s been inserted under her skin – bringing evil forces to ambush them at any moment. Oh yeah, and they’re supposed to save the world.

Max will stop at nothing to find answers. One thing she does know: it’s got something to do with an astonishing ability they have.

Max’s heart-stopping quest to protect her ‘family’ and investigate the mind-blowing mystery of her destiny continues in the scariest, strangest, and funniest James Patterson thriller yet.

Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports...Book 3
You’re about to join the adventures of Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel, six extraordinary kids who have powers like no other: they can fly, and they’re being chased – no, hunted – across America and around the world.
I promise that you’ll fly higher than ever before in this wild adventure, witness battles worthy of multiplex movie screens, and laugh until your sides hurt. There’s even a little romance...
But all good things – and even terrible, unspeakable ones – must come to an end. This is that moment in time, I’m afraid. Either we save the world, or we crash and burn. And I mean all of us – even you, faithful reader, because you play a very big part in this story.
The flock needs your help. Yes, you.
The Final Warning...Book 4
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. Their ability to fly could help the scientists conquer this epic problem. The expedition seems like a perfect combination of adventure, activism–and escaping government forces who watch the Flock like a hawk.
But even in Antarctica, 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....


  1. Janet sent these to me and my mom had sent them to her. I had all three read in about two days. They are teen fiction and are pretty easy reads, but also they have you gripped and I couldn't put them down!!
    There are now a total of five books out.
    Book 4 is titled Final Warning had had horrible reviews compared to the first 3. Book Five is titled Max and lots of reviewers said that the story is back and the 4th book was just a sort of filler. Haven't read them so I can't say for sure.
    I do recommend the first 3 though. I have borrowed them to one friend who didn't seem to like them and then I let them to my friend Chris and he hasn't given them back!! He really liked them too.

  2. Oh and there is lots of rumors that it may be made into a movie.Check out You Tube there are a lot of amature (spelling??) movie trailers that are fun to watch!!

  3. The Final Warning was not as great as the other three, in fact it was overall pretty boring in comparison. I read it in a day, because I just had to find out what happend to Max in the end. Now I just need to send this copy to Lisa!
