Life may not be the same for heartbroken Maximum Ride after her best friend and soul mate, Fang, devastatingly deserts her flock--now consisting of Dylan, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel--at the end of book six (FANG). But some things never change: Like the fact that evil scientists are still trying to convince Max that she needs to save the world, this time by providing the genetic link in speeding up the pace of evolution. Worse, they're trying to convince her that her perfect mate is Dylan, the newest addition to the flock. The problem is that, despite herself, Max is starting to believe it. Dylan is open, strong, sensitive, protective... what more could she want?
While Fang travels the country collecting his own gang of evolved humans, Dylan just might be finding a way into Max's head and heart. But the imminent danger of a doomsday cult threat to the world brings the flock and the gang together in Paris for truly explosive fireworks of more than one kind. And this time, it's not just Max who saves the world. The true heroine, for once, might just be little Angel.
