Welcome back to my blog about balloons, rocket ships, airplanes, space travel, Star Wars, sci-fi, and everything about flying! Well, I was playing around in my local library when the flash of a wing on one of the book spines caught my eye. Of course, I picked it right up — wings, duh — and I fell into the amazing world of Maximum Ride!
The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson follows the life of one Maximum “Max” Ride (a great name, Max) and the fellow members of her Flock: Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel. Max and the other members of the Flock all have, get this, massive wings and can fly! They all got their wings (and other powers) through some crazy scientific experiments done at The School, an evil laboratory. I don’t want to give too much away, but I think if you like science fiction, fantasy, and flying anywhere near as much as me, you should check these out!
If reading isn’t your thing, there are also AMAZING manga renditions illustrated by NaRae Lee!
Until next time,
