The Maximum Ride series begins with "Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment," "School's Out – Forever," "Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports," "The Final Warning" and "MAX." It continues with "FANG," "ANGEL," "Nevermore" and "Maximum Ride Forever."
The nine-book young adult series by James Patterson features a teenage girl, Max, and her friends, known as the flock because they have wings and can fly. In the first book, the flock has escaped from an evil lab called the School. The series tells of the flock's adventures in trying to save the world while fighting off enemies such as half-wolf Erasers and evil eugenics engineers.
The Maximum Ride series grew out of two earlier adult-level books, "When the Wind Blows" and "The Lake house."
