Review: Nevermore by James Patterson

Nevermore by James Patterson
Published: August 6, 2012
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Pages: 368
Series: Maximum Ride #8
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis: One last chance...
for Max, Fang, and Dylan...
before it all ends.

Are you ready for the final chapter? Are you ready for the ultimate flight? Because THIS IS IT. One last incredible, explosive adventure with an astonishing ending that no one could have seen coming.

My Review: Wait. Let me take a moment to think about this. Just wow. Its over. The series that I've been reading since I was in sixth grade is over! I feel like...I don't know...empty.

So let me start off by telling you this: I wasn't expecting much from this book. After the last book I thought Nevermore would be all about Max's feelings and how she couldn't choose between Dylan and Fang. But thankfully Nevermore wasn't all about that.

This book was an amazing ending to such a great series. From the moment I had this book in my hand I was freaking out. I freaked out like every other page. I couldn't help it.

There were a few things that I didn't really like about the book. The first one was Ari. Jeez can't the guy stay dead? What's this his third time dying? He died such a good death the last time he died (that sounds so weird) and I cried over him. But when he died this time there was just no emotion. I didn't shed a single tear for him even though he was one of my favorite characters. Also what was that entire thing with Angel's eyes. I thought she was blind but then she got her sight back? I was a little lost there but maybe that's just me. Also didn't Ella run off to get wings? I thought there would be something about that but there wasn't.

I'm so glad that we didn't have to wait until the last page of the book to find out who Max ended up with. Otherwise I would have been tempted to read the last page before finishing the rest of the book and I hate it when I do that.

I loved how this series ended and I really want to say more but if I did it would probably ruin the book.
