Summary
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?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The end is near . . . or is it? So reads the tagline of Book 3 of the Maximum Ride series, suggesting that Patterson's best-selling series for YAs may expand beyond the trilogy originally planned news that will be greeted enthusiastically by fans of its 14-year-old heroine. Slated for extermination by their scientist creators, rebel-mutant Max and other members of her flock, all of whom possess bird DNA and functioning wings, are on the lam again, their mission to save the world from a eugenics plot. Affection for the dauntless characters and misadventures that build on universal yearnings about sprouting wings and taking flight will hold readers.--Mattson, Jennifer Copyright 2007 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The third and final chapter in James Patterson's Maximum Ride series, Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports, finds Max and the rest of the gang gearing up for their final battle against the agents of the "Re-Evolution" experiment-evil scientists working to genetically engineer a "superior" race of humans.
