After years on the run from the scientists that made them, Max and her Flock of half-bird, half-human hybrids have been offered a home in exchange for occasionally doing some missions for the government. They are asked to investigate strange disasters occurring in Hawaii, but going out in the open means exposing themselves to the evil plans of the mysterious Mister Chu.
Comfortable in their new safe house, Max and the rest of the Flock finally begin to feel optimistic about their newly-gained freedom. Then the Machine Geeks appear--part machine, part human, totally destructive. They are in the service of an ominous Mr. Chu, who has his eyes on the Flock and their unique abilities. And if he can't have them, he'll make sure nobody else can either! As the Flock battles the Machine Geeks, trouble is bubbling to the surface of the ocean. Millions of fish are dying and someone is destroying hundreds of boats. The government asks for the Flock's help and it seems to be the perfect chance to escape from Mr. Chu and his marauding gang of thugs--especially since it means a trip to Hawaii! But danger continues to threaten Max and her friends. Can they protect themselves from Mr. Chu and save the ocean from utter destruction?
