Maximum Ride Series Review

Mikaela Columba

The series Maximum Ride is one of the most thrilling and action packed book series. With the newest book Maximum Ride Forever, the series has become more of a hit than ever! The mastermind behind the whole thing is James Patterson. He is the author of many other books that some of you might know, such as Daniel X, Witch and Wizard, and the series we all love, Maximum Ride. Even though James Patterson is one of the most brilliant authors, this article is about the series Maximum Ride.

Let’s begin, shall we? In the beginning Max, and her “family”; Fang, Nudge, Iggy, The Gasman, and Angel, are escapees from an organization/ lab called the school. Now due to their time there, the school has messed with their genetic codes and gave them 2% Avian/Bird DNA. This has given them abilities, such as breathing underwater, EXTREME vision, and flight, and no, they don’t fly magically.  They have wings, and no again, the wings are not attached to their arms. They have 6 limbs, 2 arms, 2 legs, and 2 wings. During the first book, Max and her family are chilling/hiding in a tree house in Montana. However, their good time in Montana is interrupted when one of the youngest family members is captured by Erasers. Erasers are a genetically engineered guard for the school who are 1% wolf, 99% human, and all beast.

The first book ends with Max, Fang, Iggy, and The Gasman going to New York to save Angel. However evil is always watching…
