Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge and Angel are six extraordinary avian hybrids. The result of a cruel Biotech experiment which manipulated their DNA and turned them into recombinant life forms with wings. This flock has endured a turbulent upbringing and they have been continually faced with evil. Evading capture on a daily basis, they have endured torture and been pushed to the very brink of sanity. Hunted all their lives, they've had to fight life-threatening and belief-defying battles pitting their strength against the fearsome force of their shadowy enemies. But as their predators evolved, their unique ability to fly is no longer enough to save them.With their genes mutating to astonishing affect, the flock establishes a new set of skills to unleash as they strive for survival. But just as they struggle to get to grips with these physical changes, emotionally they face new challenges too: life on the fringe of society can be a lonely existence. Driven to the wastelands of Antartica, each day brings a new threat for the flock. Danger is never far away and while fighting to save their own skin, they have a new mission to undertake - one with devastating global consequences...
Despite the fact that I desperately love this series, and the fact that Max and the gang meet some new friends and kill some new enemies in this book with their usual wit, I was disappointed with The Final Warning. It seemed to me as if James Patterson wrote this book only to barf out a bunch of Global Warming propaganda. Seriously, it was probably half of the book, and it made me wonder whether Patterson was wrote this book as a joke or if he is just losing his touch. Or both, take your pick. Also, the rest of the series seems to just go downhill from this book on. I think I'd rather have the author come out and say "okay, I'm bored with this series now, I'm done" than chuck out this half-filled can of beans.

Another great read
The story continues as Patterson further develops these delightful flying-children characters. (When are the folks in Hollywood going to take notice and start making some great movies based on these awesome stories?) This book was a little different from the others, a minimal change I appreciate in a series with so many books. I loved this one and can't wait to get the next book in the series!
