Max Ride and her best friends have always had one another's backs. No matter what. Living on the edge as fugitives, they never had a choice. But now they're up against a mysterious and deadly force that's racing across the globe - and just when they need one another the most, Fang is gone. He's creating his own gang that will replace everyone - including Max. Max is heartbroken over losing Fang, her soulmate, her closest friend. But with Dylan ready and willing to fight by her side, she can no longer deny that his incredible intensity draws her in. Max, Dylan, and the rest of their friends must soon join with Fang and his new gang for an explosive showdown in Paris. It's unlike anything you've ever imagined ...or read.

    Oh my gosh, I got sooooooo mad at Fang during this book, he just HAD to leave Max? I mean, the poor girl has been through enough already, and now the boy she loves just up and leaves her! But, it contributes immensely to the plot, so I'll give James Patterson credit for that.

      As a part of an experiment, Maximum Ride and five other kids (Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy and Angel- The Flock) are genetically engineered to be 1% bird at The School. As a result of this, they have the ability to fly using the feathered wings which sprout from their backs. As well as being part of a prophecy which foretells that Max must save the world, The Flock are targets for many extremists, most of whom want them dead or to use as living weapons. They believe that they are oddities, freaks, even, and therefore, they cannot trust anyone. When she is on the run from deadly Erasers (who are genetically engineered to be part wolf), how can Max deal with the heavy weight that rests upon her shoulders?
