James Patterson is one of the most famous authors who is continuously able to produce amazing novels by the bucket load. In the Maximum Ride series Mr. Patterson uses his witty and humorous dialogue combined with fast paced action to create a trend setting young adult series. In the seventh installment,?Angel, Patterson portrays the old saying of “If ain’t broke, don’t fix it” with?Angel?feeling like other books in the series. While in most cases this would be a negative, the author uses it to his advantage, making the book just as entertaining as the one before. What?Angel?does is take that well used formula and broadens it into something richer.
In Angel we find Max reeling from the lost of her best pal and soul mate Fang who has decided to start his own flock of mutant kids. As always though there is no time for relaxation and our heroine is thrown another apocalyptic problem. New characters are brought in and some secrets of the past are somewhat revealed. While?Angel?is a very fast paced and entertaining book there are points where the flow of the book starts to get repetitive to a point where you can quickly predict how a character will react to certain situations. Despite this, James Patterson has once again added a great addition to the Maximum ride series. Nevermore, The final Maximum Ride Adventure installment is due out in Aug. So there is plenty of time to catch on a great series if you haven’t started.
