 Max and the crew of Bird Kids are in Africa for a CSM feed-the-poor expedition.  They are happy to be free of people, Erasers, and things that should be dead chasing them.  And Max - she can't stop thinking about Fang.  He's on her mind all the time - and apparently, vice versa.  But what happens when a new bird kid is introduced?  Dylan is a new, 8-month-old clone with wings.  He doesn't know how to fly very well, but he's gorgeous and looks a little older than the original Flock.  And apparently, he's Max's perfect match.  Her other half.

And Fang is supposed to die.  Soon.

As I greatly love Fang, I cannot help but love this book.  I'm totally emotionally connected to the characters - especially Max and Fang.  because they're so amazing and perfect together.  The story line in this one was better than some of the others, including the mad-scientist stuff, which was beginning to go downhill.  But now the story is getting to the heart of things, the deep secrets of who, exactly, is going to try to destroy the world.

In all honesty, this book was sad.  It had a sad ending.  Don't read it unless you can get your hands on Angel right away.  If you love the characters just as much as I do, then you'll be dying to know!!

I'm not adding my normal character/story notes because I feel the same about them in practically every book.  Great characters who I love.  FANG.  And a fun story that varies from really good to really cheesy.  Most of the time it's fun-cheesy.  Sometimes it's stupid-cheesy.  Sometimes it's serious.  Seriously good.

And lemme say this:  if you've read a couple of the books and aren't attached to the characters, don't keep reading.  Honestly, to me, the characters make it worth it.  Without them, I wouldn't be here, writing this review for the 6th book.

FANG.  FangFangFang!!!!!  I neeeeeed to KNOW!!!!!
