Being a kid with wings–constantly on the run–has never been easy, and Max and her flock are getting tenser than ever. First, on a trip to Africa, they meet a mysterious billionaire whose intense scrutiny of the flock makes her fear the worst. Then, a cryptic message from a young girl arrives, warning them “The sky will fall.” And as if an impending apocalypse weren’t bad enough, canny bird kid Angel makes a dire prophecy about Max’s soul mate:
Fang will be the first to die.
Max’s desperate desire to protect Fang brings the two closer than ever. But can the team weather the storm, or will the turmoil rip them apart for the last time?
When I got this book at the store I was jumping for joy! I was waiting for this book to come out and I couldn’t get to the store fast enough to snatch it up!
This book was so much better than the last couple in the series. The author found his footing and did not disappoint. We still have plenty of action and plenty of suspense. I have been waiting for the story of Fang and Max to come to a head and climax. Their relationship seemed to be on track and then BAM! The author not only throws in a new character to put a wrench in it, but he has Angel predict that Fang will be the first to die.
I am not going to give spoilers away, but you will need a box of tissues and you will be ready to throw this book at the wall by the time you get done. I screamed in frustration at the end and wanted to call Mr. Patterson and scream at him for doing this at the end! Even though the ending was packed full of emotion, it does leave you excited about the next book in the series!
Overall this book is by far, my favorite out of the series! Even wtih all the crying it made me suffer through. I can’t wait for the next book. Hopefully the author will have it coming out this year and not past that. We deserve the next book very quickly after what we have to go through in this book!
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My BookshelfFor Rereading!
