Book Review: Angel (Maximum Ride, #7) by James Patterson

Angel (Maximum Ride, #7) by James Patterson

Read from September 01 to 02, 2012

Max Ride and her best friends have always had one another's backs. No matter what. Living on the edge as fugitives, they never had a choice. But now they're up against a mysterious and deadly force that's racing across the globe - and just when they need one another the most, Fang is gone. He's creating his own gang that will replace everyone - including Max.
Max is heartbroken over losing Fang, her soulmate, her closest friend. But with Dylan ready and willing to fight by her side, she can no longer deny that his incredible intensity draws her in.
 I loved this! I haven't read Maximum Ride books in a long time and this just jump-started my love for this series! It was perfect! I don't care what others say about this book; it was perfect for me!

I love how complicated the Fang-Max relationship is fight now! And that ending! It was how Maximum Ride almost always ends: with a bang!

Now I just can't wait for Nevermore!

My Goodreads review

Fan Fiction Recommendation: Sasuke Gaiden by SkyeandMax

Title: Sasuke Gaiden
Author: SkyeandMax
Rating: T
Genre: Action/Adventure/Romance
Characters: Sasuke U. & Sakura H.
Summary: What if Fugaku died a hero during the Kyuubi attack? What if the Uchiha clan wasn't blamed for the attack? How would that change Sasuke and Konoha?
Status: In progress

I love this non-massacre take on this plot line! The author captures the reader's attention from the moment the story starts and who can resist Sasuke, Itachi and Shisui in almost every chapter?
