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 somethingis 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Max narrates with a precocious, snarky voice but makes it relatively easy to jump into her complicated tale midstream. Not surprisingly, the open-ended conclusion begs for a follow-up; it's also little wonder that a movie franchise is in the works.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Fast-paced thrills spill from the pages and pull readers in, starting on page one…Patterson weaves humor into the dramatic action. In addition, Max’s romantic relationship with Fang ripens to a more serious level than in the previous books. Hints of an approaching apocalypse, repeated references to Max’s ‘mission in saving the world,’ and a few lingering questions such as her precarious relationship with her father all leave open the possibility of a sequel.”

    School Library Journal

  • “James Patterson’s Maximum Ride novel puts the pedal to the metal.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Action and snappy dialogue…Jill Apple reads capably.”


  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " This series got horrid. It went from saving the world action novels to "Let's save the environment." got way to preachy. "

    " Plot is getting bette, Still... Save the world by going green? Then why the fighting and all of this is a test blah blah blah? "
