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.

The Final Warning is about the 7 (including Total) trying to save the world from global warming. yeah, well, global warming is alot more serioius than you think people. it can wipe us out, we'd be extinct!!!! yeah- EXTINCT. and there's plenty more surpirises in store for y'all.... including something concerning Total... something interesting. you'll have to read the book to find out... :) "

    " Wow. I was really dissappointed after finishing that one. The first three books were completely awesome, but this was just a drawn out environmental statement! What's with that? If the rest of the books are like this, I might not finish reading the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 12/7/2013

    " Max and flock still running for their lives, ... but don't get attacked nearly as often. Instead they join a scientific expedition. I enjoyed this book following the gang and see them continue to gain new powers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Paton | 12/6/2013

    " This book has disappionted me because the rest of the books were better but thats no reason not to read it.This book was more focused on ecological fallouts and less with action but had a thrilling new twist with the wolve hybrids..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 andhyne manish | 12/3/2013

    " I am dissapointed. None of the books are as great as I thought. Not bad-books though. And I'm a kinda girl who enjoy not-bad books. If you must read these series, just read it to number 5. Because the story actually ends at 4. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Smith | 6/16/2013

    " another great adventure. i was glad that this picked right up where the other book left off. i just ordered the last 2 books in this series from the book store. i am anticipating the ending. their is more chemistry in this book between max and fang. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristine | 6/6/2013

    " Though this novel is short, it is still amazing. There's many twists and turns, curveballs, and very, very surprising developments, as well as time to get know to know the flock even better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keona Chandler | 5/12/2013

    " just as good as all of the other james patterson maximum rides. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 4/15/2013

    " I had HIGH expectations for this book, and what did i get? Just a lovey dovey girl book book about a bunch of random people in the artic. I really liked the first 3 books but i thought this one was just inrelevant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl | 11/11/2012

    " This is where Max goes from wildly out of the ordinary to insanely outlandish. This is built on by the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brey | 3/9/2012

    " Not my favorite in the series...... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maddy | 1/4/2012

    " This book was Ok, I guess. It wasn't as exciting as the first few and I got a bit confused with the story line, I mean, Why did they go to Antarctica? I know they went because of climate change but it didn't make much sense to me. Other that that it was a reasonably good book. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Savion | 5/4/2011

    " Maximum Ride "The Final Warning" is my least favorite book of the Maximum ride books. It has alot less action and Villins than the other books. But dont plan on skiping this book, because it dose explane alot of the Questons being asked. "

    " Not as good as the others. I found it preached a bit too much about global warming. It will be interesting to see where book 5 takes the flock. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tokio Hotel, Cinema Bizarre, and The GazettE | 4/25/2011

    " The final Warning is an incredible book, I feel like everythng got more intense and there was just so many thing I remember. Unlike most authors, I can really understand the way he writes, and I can remember a lot of things that happen in his books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 4/22/2011

    " Series is still cranking along - the suspense is building though the emphasis on global warming got really old. A nice mix of world saving, teen angst, and the addition of a new super villain. The series is a guilty pleasure that has sucked me in. "
