Saturday Short: The Final Warning

Goodreads Summary: From #1 bestselling author James Patterson comes his greatest Maximum Ride thriller ever! Max Ride is a perfectly normal teenager... who just happens to be able to fly. She and the other members of the flock—five kids who share her remarkable ability—are asked to help environmental scientists study global warming. This seems like a great way to have daring fun and escape government forces who are hunting them. But even in harsh, remote Antarctica, Maximum Ride is an irresistible target in constant danger. For whoever controls her powers could also control the world. And any final warning she gets may come too late...
For those of you that don't know, I picked up the first four books of the Maximum Ride series at a used bookstore for like two dollars in the midst of all their hype. They were popular, the price was right and so I took the plunge.

I wanted to like this series, I really did, but the highest I ever rated one was three stars I believe. And this one in particular was a dismal two stars. At this point it just felt like it was repeating all of the same things as the first three with little to no growth from the characters. Basically, I felt like I was just rereading one of the other books and that is never fun. I can see why the series is popular because it is action-packed and the commentary from Max especially is amusing but personally it just wasn't for me.
