Maximum Ride is a science fiction novel series written by James Patterson. I have read the second book in the series. The novel is great and interesting on many instances. It is about 6 teens and children that have been mutated in genetic experiments. Patterson incorporates the lifestyle of a band of siblings with a band of serviving warriors. He expresses the groups fears and conquers in excellent flow and character development. Each member of the group plays a role that is unique and allows for a sci-fi novel that is super fun to add to your collection.
