I finally got Fang – the newest book in the Maximum Ride series ~ 8D
Too bad I’m too engrossed with Brave Story to care right now haha xD
And due to a good review on saw on it, Battle Royale is going to be next in line. Sorry Fang ^^;
Actually, the real reason I’m taking my sweet time is because I cheated and looked at the end (I wanted to know if this was going to be the last book or not). Was so pissed by the ending. Like wtf Patterson!? You jumping on board the Twilight train too D8!? (no hate to the Twilight fans meant).
So now I don’t want to read it haha
Title: Maximum Ride volume 2
Artist: NaRae Lee
Summary on the back:
Having recovered Angel, Max and the flock head to New York City to pursue a lead regarding their true identities. But where the flock goes, erasers are sure to follow! Even more troubling, though, is the voice that’s begun whispering in Max’s head. Is it really her destiny to save the world?
Volume #2 continues where the cliffhanger volume #1 left off at. The flock is reunited again. However, their reunion couldn’t have happened at a worse place: the school. Lab Coats and Erasers are everywhere, and everyone wants a piece of the mutant bird kids.
Volume two was as fast pace as the first one. I loved the make-over scene (just as I expected). The new looks are awesome – especially Max’s. I like her short hair style. Another plus with this volume is it starts to show there might be something more between Max and Fang than just friendship (yeah! :3).
Some scenes from the book didn’t make it here in this volume – I wanted to see the scene where Max was driving a car for the first time. It would have been great to see it in ‘manga’ form (especially due to everyone’s reaction to Max’s driving :3). But most of the meat made it though so one can read the book for additional content (I recommend it, just because I love the Maximum Ride series XD).
There is some confusion with some of the plot, though that’s mostly due to the book source. For example, what Angel tells the flock about their parents greatly differs from the records they find of themselves later on. This confusion continues into book #2 when we meet the family of someone in the flock (even though it was stated the family was deceased…well, Angel said the Mother was and the files said Father was so yeah…).
Overall, volume two continues strong – the artwork still impresses and the story still retains its action (and humor). There are still many questions floating around which hopefully future volumes will answer~ !
