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 U.S. 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.

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.

Disapointing.

Unlike the previous Maximum Ride books, this one has an agenda to preach to your children a religion of global warming. It implies like the future books will have the same focus. Lack of scientific principles throughtout the book with the characters guessing their way to the assumed cause of all thier problems. Not the action packed Max books we'd expected.
