One last chance...For Max, Fang, Angel, Iggy, Nudge, and Gazzy.Before it all ends.
Are you ready for the final chapter? Are you ready for the ultimate flight? Because THIS IS IT. One last incredible, explosive adventure with an astonishing ending that no one could have seen coming.

 So for those of you who is new to the world of Maximum Ride, here's a little heads-up:

"I unfolded my wings partway. Yes, folkswings. In case this is your first dip into the deep end of the ol' freak-of-nature pool, I'll just put it out there: We fly." ~Nevermore, James Patterson
Now that the truth is out there, let's get started on the review. First things first, this is an awesome ending to the series. I don't think the fans will be disappointed.

In this final chapter, we of course finds the answer to the million dollar question:

Was [Max] really supposed to save the world, or was it all just a big lie? ~Nevermore, James Patterson

Through the first half of the book, you see the Flock and the Gang preparing for the 99% plan. Yay! Back the world-saving business.

The ending blew my mind away. It was not at all what I expected. In the end, Max does choose one of the guys. Some fans will be disappointed. Some won't.

For the first half of the book, it was all meh. Sure, there were some laughing moments, but those were it. Second half, you actually get into saving Angel and the world. They were very emotional. And the epilogue, oh my goodness, the epilogue was just so inspiring. Might teach people a thing or two.

All I have to say is that, Nevermore marks a very decent end to the adventure of Max and the Flock. If you haven't already checked it out, it's recommended!

And I'll leave you with these:

We all have to save ourselves. ~Nevermore, James Patterson
Seize the days, kiddos, and hold tight to your loved ones, the only part of life that really matters, and live each moment to the fullest, because you never know when an explosive ball of gas is going to light up the sky and blow you into oblivion. ~Nevermore, James Patterson
