Publisher Comments:

There's one last chance to save the world in Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports, the closing chapter of James Patterson's thrilling trilogy. 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. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel have always worked together to defeat the forces working against them — but can they save the world when they are torn apart, living in hiding and captivity, halfway across the globe from one another?

Review:

"Lots of action, with wisecracking commentary by Max, make this a swift and entertaining read." KLIATT

Synopsis:

James Patterson continues his #1 New York Times bestselling series. The time has arrived for Max and her winged RflockS to discover their original purpose: to prevent the sinister re-engineering of a select population into a scientifically superior master race.

Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of the "flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true--except that they're being hunted by half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" who can fly, too.

In Book 3 of the series, the flock members are faced with a new enemy--robots called Flyboys who are stronger than Erasers and have retractable wings. The last thing Max wants is to keep running for her life, but she has to, taking the Flock across the country. There, they meet the sinister scientist Ter-Borsht, who speaks of something called "Re-Evolution," and the "By-Half Plan": the most frightening human experiment they can imagine--a kind of ethnic cleansing of the entire planet.

As fear and tension escalate among the flock members--and a romance starts to form between Max and Fang--they split up, with Max taking the girls to Europe, where they are held captive yet again. The only thing that keeps Max going is that, this time, she might finally meet her mother and father--but she still has to save the world. Max Ride's final flight is like a thrilling roller coaster ride with twists you'd never expect and a landing that can't be anything other than... perfect.

Synopsis:

James Patterson continues his "New York Times" bestselling series. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel have always worked together to defeat the forces working against them--but can they save the world when they are torn apart, living in hiding and captivity, half way around the world?
