Review: This addition to the well-known Maximum Ride series was fantabulous! Once I'd started it, I didn't want to put it down! :D
The flock is going to Hawaii this time, which I'm sure we all agree is far better than Antarctica. When Max's mom, Dr. Martinez, gets captured, Max isn't exactly thrilled. She's ready to fight to the death to rescue her mom.
The plot for Max was really awesome. I'm so glad that Fang and Max's relationship finallt got farther. I was really hoping they would just get it together already. Max "kind of" admits to being jealous of Bridget (you remember her from The Final Warning, right?). But anyway, everything else was really awesome, too. More kick-butt action, but it really wasn't as much in this installation. Plus, the Voice makes an appearance. And Max even gains an ability! It's pretty neat :) Oh! Fang gains the same ability Max does, and the ability they gained is one Angel already has.(Have fun guessing! :) )
My favorite character from this book was . . . I'm really not sure, actually. I guess they were all my favorites, lol. You can't hate on the flock, man!
Overall, I really loved this book. If you've been keeping up with my reviews of this series, you;ll notice that all five books have gotten a 5-Wing rating :P. That ought to tell you something!
