Max: A Maximum Ride Novel Paperback
by James Patterson (Author)

Maximum Ride and the other members of the Flock have barely recovered from their last arctic adventure, when they are confronted by the most frightening catastrophe yet. Millions of fish are dying off the coast of Hawaii and someone–or something–is destroying hundreds of ships. Unable to discover the cause, the government enlists the Flock to help them get to the bottom of the disaster before it is too late.

While Max and her team are exploring the depths of the ocean, their every move is being carefully tracked by Mr. Chu–a criminal mastermind with his own plans for the Flock. Can they protect themselves from Mr. Chu’s army of mercenaries and save the ocean from utter destruction?

James Patterson’s bestselling Maximum Ride series is back, with Max and the gang as The Protectors. Someone–or something–is decimating ships and sea life off Hawaii’s coast, and Max and her flock find themselves sucked into the Navy’s top-secret investigation of the catastrophe. Their objective: Rescue Max’s activist mom from a wicked subterranean enemy. The hitch: They must dive deep into dark waters, where gruesome evil dwells… and for high-flying Maximum Ride, could there be anything more terrifying than being trapped in the great abyss? Now in paperback, this soaring new adventure takes Maximum Ride and the Flock into terrifying new territory–fans, hold your breath!

The fifth entry in Patterson’s all-ages Maximum Ride fantasy/thriller series finds the teenaged title character facing her greatest challenge yet.

But in order to rescue her, 14-year-old Max and the five younger members of her flock (genetically developed by an environmental group) must team up with the U.S. Navy to determine why millions of fish are dying off the coast of Hawaii. All this, and Max is falling in love, too.

Max and the flock are doing fine while spending time with Max’s mom. Fang and Max are finding love throughout this whole ordeal until Max’s mom gets captured. They have to get the help of the US Navy. A new threat is upon the flock called the Uber Director and he won’t stop until they get sold to the highest bidder. On top of Max’s’ mom’s kidnapping Angel, Total, and Akila are stuck out in a crevice in below level temperatures. You know how the flock feels about being in tight spaces, well they are in a submarine being attacked by robo-ninjas. Angel was right, Max and Fang really need to learn hoow to breathe underwater. Where is Max’s mom? Will Angel and the others get out of the crevice?
