dieeeee Oh boy folks, brace yourself for this one, another Maximum Ride book but without Maximum Ride herself Ugh, why I knew this was going to probably happen, but still why I think I speak for a lot of fans that we wished for this to end after book three but then there was book four book five all the way to book nine and then we were told it was finally over HA What lies we were given Even the blurb sounds messed up She was left thirteen years ago That would have made her four ri Oh boy folks, brace yourself for this one, another Maximum Ride book but without Maximum Ride herself Ugh, why I knew this was going to probably happen, but still why I think I speak for a lot of fans that we wished for this to end after book three but then there was book four book five all the way to book nine and then we were told it was finally over HA What lies we were given Even the blurb sounds messed up She was left thirteen years ago That would have made her four right But I m pretty sure the last chapter with her flying was with her at five or six Not only that, but Max s family oriented character would never leave her daughter on a street corner by herself, she would have taken her with her or have a flock member watch her The only way I could see this even be possible is if she had her wait while they went to get food and they were captured or something But I m pretty sure Hawk would remember her name is Phoenix since kids that age remember their own name As for the people connected to Max, I bet it s Jeb or The Good Doctor ugh, please no, let them just be dead already But I m sure they will come back and probably Ari, for the third time since death means nothing in this series Will I read this book Yes, I will still read what I expect to be hot garbage Will I give this book a chance and review it properly Yes, I will because my teen years were devoted to Max I just wish I as apart of the Maximum Ride fandom was aloud to just move one I will not buy this book though, I don t like generation sequels, since the kids always end up to be annoying brats, but I will check this out at my library and keep my expectations low I will reread my Max books, if you would like to follow reviews of those I will give them proper reviews not the ones that are up then please consider giving me a follow and I would love to follow you back and maybe we can all read them together

questions I had from reading the summary how could Max and Fang have abandoned their daughter, how could she forget her name was Phoenix and forget her parents, what happened to the rest of the Flock, etc were answered for the most part in a satisfactory way The Flock IS present in this book, so people who are potentially upset about that shouldn t worry I say give this book a chance None of the Maximum Ride books have ever been perfect, but this was fun and entertaining and suspenseful, so I have no regrets about the few hours I spent reading it A single fucking tear just ran down my face Why cant this man and his ghostwriters just let it ALONE Like bitch, we wanted this shit to be over by book 3.

board the blog tour celebrating James Patterson s forthcoming Hawk and for sending me an Uncorrected Proof Copy to read and review all thoughts are my own.Hawk introduces Maximum Ride to a new generation in this exciting, fast paced, action packed adventure by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet Admittedly, I haven t actually read any of the Maximum Ride novels before and was slightly concerned as to whether or not I d be missing any key points in Max s life, however, I definitely didn t need to worry Hawk works absolutely perfectly as an introduction novel to the world of Maximum Ride, this time leading it with a new generation, Max s Daughter, Phoenix leading the story.Hawk is an absolute thrill of a reading experience, I feel like it crosses many genres and was completely engrossing throughout The setting of a post apocalyptic, post modern world as we know it America really had me wondering about the current and future state of the world, where violence erupts on the streets and people literally kill one another, where corrupt leaders control the State, their loud voices projecting through megaphone like objects carrying their totalitarian and autocratic mindset.Hawk is such an amazing lead character, I always love a sassy heroine, equipped with a total resolve and steely determination to survive Hawk has always had to make her own way in the world, after a promise from her Parents who she can t really recall promised that they d come back for her many years ago, but never did I couldn t help but feel ishe once again finds herself disappointed at the fact that she keeps hoping that they ll turn up after all these years This and the fact that Hawk couldn t remember anything about her Parents, but knowing that she s connected to Maximum Ride as the Sypnosis suggests , someone who Hawk has herself idolised for as long as she can remember Hawk kept me turning the pages eagerly in equal anticipation for what would come next in the story in every aspect and I m definitely intrigued to see where the series will go after the completely insane and edge of your seat climatic reveals and moments throughout, not to mention that wickedly exciting ending I work in a library and received an ARC of this book through Edelweiss It was rolling along fine until the last section of the book Now, I happen to be part of the generation that grew up with Maximum Ride Discovered the first three books in a school library, fell in love with the superpowers and humor and adventure, then watched as the series shambled on and onand onand on Now it returns with Book Ten.There were a few moments I enjoyed The prose and humor are nothing special I work in a library and received an ARC of this book through Edelweiss It was rolling along fine until the last section of the book Now, I happen to be part of the generation that grew up with Maximum Ride Discovered the first three books in a school library, fell in love with the superpowers and humor and adventure, then watched as the series shambled on and onand onand on Now it returns with Book Ten.There were a few moments I enjoyed The prose and humor are nothing special It s mostly just violence, gotcha cliffhangers, and the occasional oh, hey, here s a character we know Max and the Flock do feature in the book I expected Hawk s friends to be a new Flock for another generation, but they ended up beingin the background It s an odd sort of limbo not quite a new series, but still disconnected from its predecessors We get the basic answers of What happened to Hawk, but other questions are left to the imagination Fifteen years after an extinction level event, the world s population is evidently thriving, with nightmarish infrastructure and a booming population of criminals and drug addicts Overall, the book gave me what I expected It left me with numerous questions about the world and timeline Hawk lacks the magic that the early books held for me, but I think I was at exactly the right age when I encountered those And this book is not written for the young teen I was back then The new installment is evidently for older readers, with violence and cursing right out the gate.It s not mind numbing like Books 4 8 It mostly reminded me of its predecessor, Maximum Ride Forever Both feel like they have a reason to exist, and like there was a genuine attempt at worldbuilding and storytelling Unfortunately, those improvements can only exist because these books build from Never, which had one of the worst book endings known to mankind Although it feels like a flutter of life and someone actually thinking about what they re writing, on a larger scale the series should really have ended at 3.There was one storytelling choice near the end that was genuinely rage inducing for me, and which dropped the book from two or three stars to one view spoiler Hawk introduces the series first ever character with autism Although the word autistic is not used, it s very clear that that s what s intended Starting out, I was tentatively intrigued to see how this representation would be treated Well this character is the ONLY good guy who dies, while others escape far worse predicaments at the last second The death feels senseless the person in question isn t even mentioned in the epilogue hide spoiler I expect we will seefrom Hawk, sooner or later What that will look like, I m not sure There is one thing I m sure of, though it ll keep going as long as James Patterson can squeeze a fewdollars out of it Thank you so much to Penguin Random House for sending me a copy of Hawk, in exchange for an honest review Hawk has been living on the streets for ten years Every day she waits on a street corner, for half an hour, just as her parents told her to do, but they never come She spends her time acquiring food and other necessities for her kids , a few children in a home, who have been experimented on A Terrible dictator controls all of the city, and what he doesn t take, the city s crime bosses d Thank you so much to Penguin Random House for sending me a copy of Hawk, in exchange for an honest review Hawk has been living on the streets for ten years Every day she waits on a street corner, for half an hour, just as her parents told her to do, but they never come She spends her time acquiring food and other necessities for her kids , a few children in a home, who have been experimented on A Terrible dictator controls all of the city, and what he doesn t take, the city s crime bosses do Ekeing out an existence seems to be all Hawk will ever be able to do, until circumstances bring her face to face with the people she has been looking for all her life.I haven t actually read the Maximum Ride books, but that didn t affect my enjoyment of Hawk at all, so if you re hesitating to read this one, being a spin off, don t be, it stands up on its own Although I definitely do want to read the Maximum Ride books now I loved the characters, especially Clete and some of the members of the original flock The different friendships and relationships really pulled the book together and had me feeling all the emotions Hawk was a bad ass heroine and the whole book was fast paced and action packed It wasn t perfect, there were some aspects I found a bit simplistic and meh, such as the over exaggerated addiction of the Opes and the attitude of Hawk towards Clete at times I loved the mental health rep he presented, but something just felt off about some of Hawk s interactions with him Although I didn t have any of the back story, due to not reading the original books, I m glad this book didn t get too bogged down in trying to re live the past It wasn t needed and I enjoyed being able to just get on with the story Are you kidding me Is this joke My literal reaction at seeing the existence of this book was UGHH.Why is this book necessary Just let the goddamn series die James, Just let it be over LET IT GO.UGHHHHHHH Now I m going to have to read this book to see how it is intense eye roll
