The time has come for Max,Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel to face their ultimate enemy and, despite many obstacles, try to save the world from a sinister plan to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race.
I liked the book in that Patterson developed the characters and their voices well, which is very hard for an author to do. Especially if the book is set in the future. The plot is original, besides that fact that all science fiction books usually deal with evolution-which is a theory, of course, but there are more out there which never get any ground on teen fiction books. Also, in one of the earlier books, the author depicts the "flock" visiting a church and praying there. I have no idea what this guy believes in this issue. This book spews propaganda about the liberal agenda constantly near the end of the book. You can't tell if you don't know. Fortunately, this book is a good place to stop if you want to drop the series. I think that the series should have just ended here, but I guess Patterson wanted to keep the revenue coming and thought that ending "human-made global warming" would keep it coming.
