      " This was an awesome book! The author made it seem like I was with them in the book! I also like how theres a puzzle that needs to be solved and slowly some questions are answered but more questions arise. I also love the adventure and the danger they face, but I love more the twists that some up in the book. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bekah Booklover | 1/15/2014

      " I wasn't sure if this book was gonna be any good or not, but I had heard people on the internet talking about it a while back and decided to check it out. I bought a copy and it only took me one day to read. But not because it was good. It took me one day to read because a) it was really easy, and b) I just wanted to get to the end of it so that I could start a better book. I didn't like it very much, although I think the idea is good, I just didn't really like the style of writing. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luana Lima | 1/5/2012

      " Excellent, original idea... good plot, although it reaches the climax of the story two times. The plot dragged on, in other words. Good characters, nice hint of romance... "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 12/11/2011

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jocelyn | 5/22/2011

      " Terrible. A complete let down. Not to mention the INCONSISTENCIES. One very clear one was when Max and Max 2 met up again and Max 2 said she hadn't seen Max since she tried to kill her. WHICH IS WRONG as the two reunited in Book 3. Uh, Mr. Paterson, your Ghost Writers are showing. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 5/21/2011

      " Good gripping book, you see the characters grow. Back into the adventure and flying with the flock. Wanted more of Angel though as it is named after her, but we didn't really get a lot. Oh well, cannot wait until the next book! "
