Yeah, by now you're probably seeing that I'm catching up on my writings by posting all these reviews on the Maximum Ride series. 

Well, anyway, book seven (Angel) picks up a week after Fang decided to leave the flock, leaving our dear poor Max a total mess as he was in love with him. She has a difficult time picking up the pieces, especially when Dylan sorta has a crush on her as he did attempt to kiss her. Jeb and Dr. Gunther-Hagen tell Max that she is lead a new generation of mutants, the Gen 77.

Fang is doing just fine on his own. He has recruited his own team (flock) of mutants - Ratchet, Star, Kate, Starfish and Maya (Max II)

While Max & her flock head for Gen 77 headquarters, they quickly learn that the Gen 77 kids were created to kill off mankind as they are part of the Doomsday Group. Max and the other try to defend themselves, but the Gen 77 are just too strong for them.

Max has no other choice, but seek the help of Fang & his flock to stop the Doomsday Group before a disaster strikes.

Like the last three books, Angel received negative reviews from both critics and fans. For me, the writing seemed a bit rushed and the dialogue is clunky compared to the other books in the series. It seems unrealistic that Max would get over Fang that quickly and vice versa, but both characters seemed to be over each other by the end of the books. Speaking of endings, the cliffhanger ending is uncalled for. Overall, while there are a few great action scenes, Angel is pretty much the same as the last two novels.
