Maximum Ride and the rest of the Flock have barely recovered from their last arctic adventure when they are confronted by their most frightening challenge yet.

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 beanythingmore terrifying than being trapped in the great abyss?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice! I enjoyed reading this series, but I found that this novel veered off from the ones before it. It was not what I expected, but it still worked. As usual, the characters are great and the story line interesting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ugh Again It feels like nothing happened. Maybe it was because it was short or I only had a day to read it but felt like a waste when about three of the books could easily fit into one. Going to finish the series though. I'm going to see it through.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from boring Poorly executed, bland, too much focus on the authors obviously favorite trio as opposed to the fairly balanced development in the first three books between the six character s. And now that Max has a mom everyone else has conveniently abandoned their search. The Voice only deems to make an appearance because its needed to advance plot, making the story clunky and predictable. The interesting power that Nudge received in the fourth book is remembered as fantastically as the character herself; hardly ever. Not to mention the bomb infatuation that seemed more associated to Iggy has completely flopped and now become Gazzy's go to trait. Max continues to protest that she can take care of the others but constantly forgets about Angel leading to the brat placing herself yet again in dangerous situations. Series is really losing momentum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A smooth recovery I think we can all agree that the final warning was a complete and utter flop. I was desperate for James to renew himself in my eyes and I think that he accomplished that in this book. The beginning of the book didn't have me setting my hopes very high, after all that he dragged us through in book four, I thouht that we were in for another round of Mr. Eniromentalist. Luckly, he picked up th action and picked up the pace. I'mreally glad that he added some new abilities, but didn't go overboard. All in all I tip my hat to Mr. Patterson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome read! This was an awesome book that I could not put down! James Patterson is a really really great author , I even got another one of his great books because of how good this one was! Its a good read for all kids , but make sure you start with the first book which is The Angle Experiment , which I haven't read yet but you can bet I will!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from And it continues! Max and her gang are no longer in Antarctica but on the sunny coast of Hawaii. Something has been destroying ships and sea life, and Max and her flock soon find themselves in the Navy's top-secret investigation. Moreover, Max's mom has been kidnapped by a mysterious Mr. Chu who wants Max and her gang to cease their underwater case. On the bright side, Max has finally discovered her true feelings for Fang and the two go on their first official date. But of course, they are interrupted by killer robots. Non-stop action and filled with suspense, Patterson keeps you glued to the pages as you read on about Max and her flock.
