Maximum Ride: Max

Maximum Ride 5By James Patterson

This is the fifth book in the series.

Not my favorite. As I have said before the first two books were the best. This one was better than the last. This book at least had a villain and they were able to mostly defeat him. By this I mean I will not be surprised when he shows up in a later book.

On this adventure Max and the flock have to save Max’s mom. Along the way Max finally accepts her feelings for Fang and learns how to deal with them although she is still always super jealous of other girls. The only thing that bothers me is most of the time Max thinks about civilians and what not when bringing down the evil guy but this time she didn’t really seem to care, all she was focused on was her mom. As great as this series could be I don’t think they live up to the potential. Kind of disappointing.
