Maximum Ride

Everyone loves Maximum Ride!

"I just really like this series. Mostly because I like Max. I'm forty‐seven, and I want to be Max. How many teenagers must want to be Max? Max is the Superman of the decade."
—Brenda Cooper, A Space For Tea (blog)
"I highly recommend this book for adults, young adults, even preteens.... I talked so much about this, and obviously enjoyed it so much, that my 10‐year‐old (girl) is reading (and loving) it now, my 15–year‐old (boy) wants to read it next, and even my husband has expressed interest in it."
—Mama Fasha
"I loved MAXIMUM RIDE. I could not put it down. I finished it in 1 day. While different than Patterson's When the Wind Blows, I still enjoyed reading more about the winged children. I can't wait for the next one to come out."
—Stephanie, 18
"I loved this book! It was sooo exciting and suspenseful that I literally jumped when something would happen. The narrator's voice was hilarious; I laughed out loud in the middle of my English class. It was a great book, and I can't wait until the next one comes out."
—Hanna, 16
"What a fantastic read. I was so engrossed after the first couple of chapters, I had to sneak time in to finish it. I can't wait to pass on the book to my 12‐year‐old and tell others about it at the store."
—Sharon, Bookseller
"Patterson is not just for adults anymore. With the Maximum Ride series he has created edgy, taut thrillers that teens won't be able to put down. The characters are easy to identify with, and I can't wait to see what happens to Max and her family next!"
—Cathy, Bookseller, Blue Willow Bookshop
"This book...has all the characteristics of [James Patterson's] work for grown‐ups: pace, action, mystery and cool.... This skilled and compulsive tale is so involving...and it proves that girls can be tough, too."
—London Times, "Children's Book of the Week," July 3, 2005
"The key to MAXIMUM RIDE's success may be that it incorporates concepts familiar to young people.... What makes these characters so appealing is that they have wings and can fly.... Another plus: the book has a feel of a video game.... Fights and flights are nonstop in MAXIMUM RIDE. The writing is visual and cinematic—things that kids expect from their video games, TV cartoon shows, and action movies. And the ending leaves plenty of wiggle room for a sequel."
—USA Today
"The teachers read Maximum Ride again today, and the students begged them not to stop when the reading time was up! Some students even came up to me and told me they went out and purchased the book that night because they just couldn't wait until the next day to read again!"
—Terri Smith, Teacher, "Maximum Read" program, Hurst, Texas
"I am excited as a teacher to see a student get so into a book and will definitely keep copies of the series in my classroom for other reluctant readers!"
—Karie, High School Teacher

The Adventures of Maximum Ride

Nevermore
Nevermore

Are you ready for the final chapter? Are you ready for the ultimate flight? Because THIS IS IT. One last incredible, explosive adventure with an astonishing ending that no one could have seen coming.

Angel
ANGEL

In the seventh book in the bestselling series, evil scientists are still trying to convince Max that she needs to save the world, this time by providing the genetic link in speeding up the pace of evolution. Worse, they're trying to convince her that her perfect mate is Dylan, the newest addition to the flock. The problem is that, despite herself, Max is starting to believe it.

Fang
FANG

FANG WILL BE THE FIRST TO DIE. Maximum Ride is used to living desperately on the run from evil forces sabotaging her quest to save the world—but nothing has ever come as close to destroying her as this horrifying prophetic message. Fang is Max's best friend, her soul mate, her partner in the leadership of her flock of winged children. A life without Fang is a life unimaginable.

MAX
MAX

Maximum Ride and The Flock have returned for a soaring new adventure. The fifth installment of the Maximum Ride series takes the flock into a death-defying new territory. Someone–or something–is destroying hundreds of ships off the coast of Hawaii. The government recruits the flock to help them get to the bottom of the disaster before it's too late, while their every move is being carefully tracked by Mr. Chu—a criminal mastermind with his own plans for The Flock.

Maximum Ride: The Final Warning

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.

The time has arrived for Max and her winged 'Flock' to face their ultimate enemy and discover their original purpose: to defeat the takeover of 'Re-evolution', a sinister experiment to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race...and to terminate the rest.

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
Maximum Ride:
The Angel Experiment

Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, and Angel. Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways—except that they're 98 percent human, 2 percent 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 wolflike creatures with a taste for flying humans.
