Maximum Ride is a series of young adult fantasy novels by the author James Patterson, with an OEL adaptation published by Yen Press. The series is centered on the adventures of Maximum “Max” Ride and her family, called the Flock, who are human-avian hybrids born with wings after being experimented on at a lab called The School. The series is a reboot James Patterson’s earlier novels When the Wind Blows and The Lake House, aimed at a younger audience.
The first book in the fantasy series gives an overview of the Flock: Maximum “Max” Ride (the leader), Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel, all children respectively ranging from 14 to 6 years old. They are genetically altered beings born with wings, essentially a human-avian hybrid. This book primarily focuses on the abduction of the youngest member, Angel, and the rest of the Flock’s noble quest to find and save the youngest member of their family, while fighting a number of obstacles including physical ailments, natural disaster, fighting Erasers (human-wolf hybrid creatures) and the evil scientists at the experimental lab called, “The School”.
