It comes out tomorrow. The date snuck up on me, without me even realizing it. They always manage to do that, lately. I should’ve been rereading the first three books in the series, but I don’t think there’s time to do that now. Although, it’s likely that it’ll be a few weeks until I get it. I still have a stack of new books from Christmas that I haven’t read. I haven’t really read any plot synopses, or early reviews or anything like that for The Final Warning. Here’s one from the Wikipedia entry:
“Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of “Flock”-Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman and Angel–are just like ordinary kids.
Only they have wings and can fly (they are 98% human and 2% bird). It seems like a dream come true–except that they’re still being hunted by new threats at every turn like the Flyboys , which are like Erasers except they are machines. This time, the U.S. government wants to keep the Flock under observation, offering a safe haven and schooling in return. But after their incredible adventures in books 1-3, Max and Flock have grown to love freedom. After all, haven’t grown-ups always found a way to ruin their lives?
After escaping the control of the feds, they are surprised to find themselves allied with a group of environmental scientists who just might be trustworthy. And besides, what enemy could find them in one of the most remote locations on earth? They’re in Antarctica, on an expedition studying the effects of global warming up close. There is one Person who threatens them: The terrible Director. Literally, brains on a stick-an evil being who has developed mechanical soldiers far more frightening than Erasers.
Their quest? To retrieve the Flock and sell them in a global auction for billions of dollars. Will the Director that calls Max her daughter nab them before she, Fang and the flock succumb to the dangers of the harsh Antarctic wilderness? And will Max and Fang’s personal relationship develop? Only time will find out.”
It sounds quite dramatic, doesn’t it? Also, does anyone know if this will be the last one in the series? I hope not.
