Best book in my top 5 series (number one being Harry Potter). This book is amazing and breathtaking and I came back and reread so many scenes. This entire story is breathtaking and all the props to James Patterson.

"'This was the hard stuff, the leader stuff, the save-the-world stuff that I just couldn't stand having to deal with. At a certain level, there are no best choices, no right decisions. Only choices that are less bad, decisions that are less wrong."

“De tall, dark vun--dere's nothing special about him at all," ter Borcht said dismissively of Fang, who hadn't moved since the doctor had come in.
Well, he's a snappy dresser," I offered. One side of Fang's mouth quirked.”

“They [Erasers] were bad fliers," Angel chimed in, "And in their minds, they weren't all kill the mutants, like they usually are. They were like, remember to flap!”

“Holy [Insert your choice of a swear word here]," said Fang stunned.”

“Max, you're the last of the hybrids who still has...a soul.' ... 'She doesn't have soul,' Gazzy scoffed. 'Have you ever seen her dance?”

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 28, 2012

In Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel, Max hasn't gotten over the fact that Fang has left her forever, so she goes to live with Dr. Martinez because she won't take care of herself. However, Max is slowly starting to warm up to Dylan despite her mixed feelings in the seventh book. Meanwhile, Fang starts his own gang which includes Max's clone, now called Maya. The two teams join forces in Paris to stop an organization known as the Doomsday Group from killing themselves in order to save the planet. Max is hurt even more after Fang asks her to come and help them, making her feel like she's just Fang's audience of one. They fight a lot, but Angel stops their fights. Everything goes awry when Gazzy fails to disarm all the bombs under the gathering spot, and the bombs explode while Fang, Gazzy, and Angel are still in the blast radius. Fang and Gazzy make it out safely, but Angel is missing, leaving everyone heartbroken. In Angel's epilogue it said she was still alive, but her whereabouts were not specified.

Ok I loved the Max Ride series, probably the best I've ever read, but I think it should've just stopped at MAX, because I loved the whole Fang x max thing(Even though at times I found Max annoying, call me a critic...)And I immediatly fell in love with Fang(I mean c'mon who doesn't love the dark mysterious type!) Then with Dylan along now and Max's "perfect other" It was dislike at first sight.I knew there was going to be a love triangle sort of thing and I was cool with that, you know, adds to the plot. But when I finished FANG I was like "NO! THEY CAN NOT BE TOGETHER!" (If you have not read ANGEL yet please do not read on) and with Max and Dylan getting cuddly with each other I wanted to rip the book apart, and practically exploded when Maya came along. I had honestly been hoping fang and Max got together and Dylan and Myya went off to start their own flock. I wanted Dylan to imprint with her and forget Max. Hoping this might still happen so am waiting impaitently for the next book in 2012
