Publisher Comments:

From internationally bestselling author Harlan Coben comes this third action-packed installment of his bestselling young adult series.

Its been eight months since Mickey Bolitar witnessed the shocking, tragic death of his father. Eight months of lies, dark secrets, and unanswered questions. While he desperately wants answers, Mickeys sophomore year of high school brings on a whole new set of troubles. Spoon is in the hospital, Rachel wont tell him where he stands, his basketball teammates hate him . . . and then theres Emas surprise announcement: She has an online boyfriend, and hes vanished.

As hes searching for Emas missing boyfriend (who may not even exist!), Mickey also gets roped into helping his nemesis, Troy Taylor, with a big problem. All the while, Mickey and his friends are pulled deeper into the mysteries surrounding the Abeona Shelter, risking their lives to find the answers—until the shocking climax, where Mickey finally comes face-to-face with the truth about his father.

 

Synopsis:

On a trip to Africa, Max and her Flock meet a mysterious billionaire whose intense scrutiny of the Flock makes her fear the worst. Then canny birdkid Angel makes a dire prophecy about Max's soul mate: "Fang will be the first to die." Max's desperate desire to protect Fang brings the two closer than ever.

Synopsis:

Angel says that Fang will be the first to die, and Angel is never wrong. 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.

When a newly created winged boy, the magnificent Dylan, is introduced into the flock, their world is upended yet again. Raised in a lab like the others, Dylan exists for only one reason: he was designed to be Max's perfect other half. Thus unfolds a battle of perfection versus passion that terrifies, twists, and turns . . . and meanwhile, the apocalypse is coming.

Synopsis:

Being a kid with wings--constantly on the run--has never been easy, and Max and her flock are getting tenser than ever. First, on a trip to Africa, they meet a mysterious billionaire whose intense scrutiny of the Flock makes her fear the worst. Then, a cryptic message from a young girl arrives, warning them "The sky will fall." And as if an impending apocalypse weren't bad enough, canny birdkid Angel makes a dire prophecy about Max's soul mate: Fang will be the first to die. Max's desperate desire to protect Fang brings the two closer than ever. But can the team weather the storm, or will the turmoil rip them apart for the last time?

Fang is the sixth installment in the Maximum Ride series. This book was a terrible addition. First of all, the author, James Patterson, cannot revise his writing. Initially, Max, the main character, is portrayed as having blonde hair and blue eyes. Later, it describes her as having brown hair and brown eyes. More importantly, her personality is completely changed from a tough mature teen whose only goal is to keep her family safe to a pathetic, lovesick girl who would like nothing more than to spend the rest of her life alone with her boyfriend, Fang, all to herself. The characters sound like entirely different people than they were in the last books. Even the voice in the writing seems like it was created by another author. Lastly, the book ends with a ridiculous cliffhanger that doesn’t make any sense. The best part of the book was an amusing survey at the back of the book that one of the characters had “filled out.” The actual story part of the book was poorly written and did not have a good plot.
