Reviews

James Patterson continues his Maximum Ride series with School's OutForever. The six genetically altered, winged characters from The Angel Experiment are en route to Washington, DC, to an FBI agent's home as the book opens, for a taste of "normal" lifebut the sextet soon sets off for Florida on a mission to keep the world safe. Ages 11-up. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Gr 6-10-An unusually dark fantasy, skillfully told. In this third book in the series, Dina and her family have settled into a comfortable life of farming and trading. Her mother no longer uses her Shamer's gift of seeing the ugly truths hidden behind peoples' eyes, and Dina's own Shamer's talent has disappeared. Then her father, a Blackmaster who wields the Serpent's Gift of illusion and coercion, comes to claim his daughter. The family flees to a neighboring country where Dina's brother, Davin, and Nico, the usurped teenaged ruler of their homeland, break the repressive local laws and are sentenced to years in the royal prison. In this grim place designed to break the souls of its inmates, Davin learns to respect Nico, and Dina learns to see some good in her father. Dina and Davin's alternating first-person descriptions of the various threats to their family make for a fast-paced read. Prison scenes of physical and psychological abuse are absolutely chilling, all the more so because they sometimes involve children. The book can stand alone but will be more rewarding for readers of the first two books, who will recognize the characters' growing strength and maturity under often-brutal conditions.-Beth Wright, Fletcher Free Library, Burlington, VT Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
