Maximum Ride #4: The Final Warning, the breathtaking fourth chapter in a series that has garnered critical acclaim, is one reason TIME magazine says James Patterson is “the man who can't miss.” Whether you're 10 or 110, you'll soar right along with Max as the stalwart, winged young heroine tries to save herself, her flock and the world, too!
Just because a cruel, Biotech experiment went out of control and gave Maximum Ride and her five-member team the stunning ability to fly doesn't mean they're not otherwise normal kids. 15-year-old Max's growing “feelings” for Fang are ever foremost on her mind, even as she and her high-flying companions—Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge and Angel—are dispatched to Antarctica where a group of environmental scientists needs their assistance in the increasingly alarming battle against global warming. Despite the frigid temperatures, Max warms to the excitement and adventure of the task before them. She's also acutely aware that the vastness of the frozen wasteland surrounding them makes it a perfect hideout from nefarious government forces looking to control her continually growing powers. Then again, maybe it doesn't….

Love the Max series, but this last one wasn't up to snuff. Pushing his politics too much, but I really hope there are more Max books. This one didn't really seem like an "ending".

Having read the previous 3 books in the Maximum Ride series, this 4th part continues the solid, edge of your seat reading experience.

I have read most of James Patterson's books and love most of them. The Maximum Ride series was a breath of fresh air with The Final Warning as a very good ending. I'm 60 years old, and still enjoyed the whole series.

This book and the 3 that preceeded it seems to have been written for all ages. I was impressed as to the ease in which Mr. Patterson roped me into caring for these hybrid children. I found myself unable to put the book down! A great series and the last ended in such a way that you have to ask yourself: So what happens now??

This book is as spell binding as the first one was. The "family" gets to grow up and spread their wings, so to speak. You will wish that this was the neverending book as you get involved in the drama. They say final - but hopefully theres more to come
