This is the third book to the Maximum Ride series. I have to say, I was very impressed by Mr. Patterson's work! Another of his exciting books, and the suspenseful tale continues on! I can't wait to see what other books in the series there are!  "Check it Out"

Beyonders: Chasing the Prophecy
Review
Great finale to the Beyonders Series, though it can get emotional. If you do not like people dying in books this isn't the book for you. Other than that it is a great book describing what happens to Rachel, Jason, Galloran and many more as they fight to defeat Maldor once and for all.  "Check it Out"
