Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of "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 still being hunted by new threats at every turn.
This time, the US government wants to keep the Flock under observation, offering a safe haven and schooling in return. But after their incredible adventures in books 1-3, Max and Flock have grown to love freedom - after all, haven't grown-ups always found a way to ruin their lives?
After escaping the control of the feds, they are surprised to find themselves allied with a group of environmental scientists who just might be trustworthy. Besides, what enemy could find them in one of the remotest locations on earth - Antarctica - on an expedition studying the effects of global warming up close?
There is one, however: The Uber-Director - literally, brains on a stick - an evil being who has developed mechanical soldiers far more frightening than Erasers. Their quest? To retrieve the Flock and sell them in a global auction for billions of dollars. Will the Uber-Director nab them before Max, Fang and the flock succumb to the dangers of the harsh Antarctic wilderness?
Kids, parents, and educators tuned into the issue of global warming will find this latest episode of the blockbuster Maximum Ride series not only a particularly riveting adventure, but also a motivating, cautionary tale about a real-life peril that may affect their own future.

Needed to do his homework

Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Jill Apple?

I will read another one of his books.


Has The Final Warning turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not from this genre but maybe this series.


Was The Final Warning worth the listening time?

This book had a major political agenda. Completely turned me off.


Any additional comments?

I have read lots of Patterson books, this is the first one I did not like. He needs to do his homework, a little better, on global warming. If you want to read a book with a left-wing political agenda this might be the book for you otherwise it is not worth the time.

Sadly not even good fiction

The previous books were very good and entertaining. I and my kids loved them. My kids will not hear this book. It's full of questionable science and questionable facts used to support an anti-global warming agenda complete with political direction straight from Al Gore. It MIGHT be tolerable kids fiction if it were balanced; but, it isn't. A sad addition to a good series.
