Maximum Ride: The Final Warning by James Patterson

The fourth book in Patterson's Maximum Ride series is just as good as the first three. This time the flock (made up of 5 winged kids with amazing abilities, led by Max, and who were taken as babies and genetically altered in a lab to possess avian DNA and have since escaped- whew!) are off to not only escape danger (yet again) but also to use their special abilities to help scientists research global warming in Antarctica. But even Antarctica is not far enough away from the Uber-Director, a human-robot hybrid of some sort whose main purpose in life is to capture them.

There is a brand new army of specialized soldiers made just to capture Max and the flock. If they are captured and their abilities are put to use for the wrong purposes, the whole world could be in danger. Mwahahahaha! But in the meantime, six-year-old Angel goes missing in an Antarctic storm that could kill her if she isn't found soon.

I enjoy this series. The books are quick reads and the characters are well-defined and continually evolving. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
