Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I love the Maximum Ride series, though the first three are my favourites--everything after that get worse and worse, in my opinion. I, as most other fans, thought "Nevermore" was to be the final book, as that's what it was marketed as. I read that, and though it was horrible. Absolute rubbish. So perhaps it's that book, the book that set my expectations so low for this one, that made me look at this one in a more favourable light. Anyway, I much preferred this book over "Nevermore", and most of the series (excluding the first three). I would recommend this to anyone who's read the rest of the series. If anyone's curious, the way I would rate the series is: 1. "Angel Experiment" 2. "Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports" 3. "School's Out Forever" 4. blank (I don't think any of the rest were good enough to be number 4) 5. "Maximum Ride Forever" 6. "MAX" 7. "FANG" and "ANGEL" tied 8. "Nevermore" 9. "TFW" wasn't good enough for #9 IMO 10. "The Final Warning" because I think that's where the--erm--poop really hit the fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Wild Thrill Ride! In "Maximum Ride Forever" the angel kids' adventures conclude with a challenge that has Max trying to make sense of a post-apocalyptic world devastated by natural disasters, an atomic bomb, famine and a deadly virus. In a wild ride that has the flock scattered and hunted by a genetically enhanced "Horseman" bent on killing them, Max searches for the scientist determined to eradicate and replace humanity with his own creations. In a plot filled with shocking twists and non-stop action, the intensity and suspense ignites when Max, fearing her flock has been decimated soars across the world's ravaged landscape fighting Cryenas, brainwashed kids and vicious lampreys to get to Russia to fight a brilliant but egomaniac doctor and his horde of mutated soldiers. The novel is a page turner from beginning to end as Max meets new friends like the Aquatics and a delightfully charming bird-boy who she calls Harry, as well as an African brother and sisterwho are hungry enough to eat her. Like the other eight books the characters are unforgettable and well-developed, maturing in complexity with each adventure. With all her faults and haunted by tragic loss Max is still the feisty, stubborn bird-kid who has to face her destiny as a savior of humanity while Angel takes a leading role as the tough, bossy mind-reader who can predict the future. Max's soul mate Fang rarely smiles and continues to worry knowing his fate will bring heartbreak. Even though Max loves him, he constantly infuriates and drives her crazy in his desperation to keep her safe. In contrast Dylan is dependable, honest, sweet and selfless. Although Max loves him as a friend, it's Fang who continues to hold her heart. I loved Harry the bird-boy who's resourceful, strong and an exceptional flier . Unlike Max and her flock he hasn't been trained in fighting techniques which makes him vulnerable to the extremists and Horsemen. But it's the manipulation and genetic engineering of a rich and powerful scientist with a god- complex and his deluded assistant, once thought to be a friend that adds chilling excitement to the final chapter in this mesmerizing series. I enjoyed "Maximum Ride Forever" which left me surprised but satisfied with the ending. For all those that followed Maximum and her flock's adventures, this story should not be missed.
