Synopsis: Max and her flock are humans that were genetically altered to have wings. They were experimented on in a lab and, with the help of Jeb, escaped. Jeb disappeared, and they now live peacefully in the mountains with Max as their leader. Until the youngest of the six, Angel, gets taken by Erasers, human-wolf mutants, back to the lab. It’s up to Max and her flock to save Angel!


Review: I really enjoyed this book because the characters were all very relatable. The way it was told was also very personal; it was like Max was having a conversation about her adventures with me. I also liked the part where they get to fly. Thanks to this book if anyone asks what I want for a superpower, I want to be able to fly! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fast series.

Review: What really made this book was the intensity. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest during certain parts of the book.

4 stars

Review: I gave this book 4 stars because I really liked the plot. It was a good mix of science fiction and reality. It had some science fiction in it, but it wasn’t super crazy making it easy to follow. It was also easy to relate to the book. It was interesting how fast Emika’s life changed. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a science fiction, or just a good book for the weekend.

Review: I gave this book a 4 star rating because I liked the plot. It was super unexpected. The plot twists were well done. This book is a good science fiction, but the science fiction was hard to understand at times. The humor in the book was good as well, and it was fun to read. The book did get slow partway through, but it was definitely worth it. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants something short and easy to read.

Review: I gave this book a 5 star rating because I thought this book was so well done. It had science fiction in it, but not too much. It had relatable characters, and mystery to it as well. It had two main characters that you come to care about. I liked the combination of mystery, science fiction, and adventure/survival. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a trilogy to get hooked on to. I couldn’t put this book down!
