Review by BookAddictDiary
Angel is the latest in James Patterson's blockbuster young adult series, Maximum Ride. Following in the footsteps of the previous novels, Angel delivers everything that Maximum Ride fans have come to expect: fast-paced action about genetically altered teenagers, complete with teen romance and world-saving environmentalism undertones.Angel picks up not long after Fang leaves off. Fang is now off with his own flock, leaving Max with the usual group of rag-tag misfits. As Max works through her teenage romance issues, a new group appears on the scene who wants to eradicate all humans. Max then is convinced by yet another scientist that she must, yet again save the world.In many ways, Angel is just more of what was in the previous Maximum Ride novels, but by now Patterson is grasping for straws. Really, the first story arch (first 4 books) is what made this series enjoyable, but everything since has been purely to milk the franchise. There has been little direction, the books have had virtually no meat, and have been fairly dull. But what's even worse is that the last three-ish books or so have just been repetitions of one another. There's absolutely nothing new here, nothing really of interest to offer fans accept another fast-paced action novel with everyone's favorite Maximum Ride characters.At this point, I'd only recommend this book to hard core fans of the serious who really must know what happens next to the characters, but other than that, take the pass. Even with the final book in the Maximum Ride series coming out in February 2012, it's not worth it just to complete the series. This series should have ended a long time ago.
