Share your thoughts about Max


Kayla  | 49 comments I love Max! She's so funny, strong, and she loves her flock! Grr I'm jealous of her wings.


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

She's gone pretty soft now...


message 4: by Amie (new)

Amie | 26 comments i love max! she's tough and completely kicks ass :D and its good to have a self-reliant heroine in a book for once; instead of a whiny, weak girl who has to rely on some guy to save her all the time, but at the same time she still has an emotional, softer side (i mean, who wants her to be made of stone :L) :)


Hannah (cloveshay) | 110 comments Max is pretty beast. And she is soooooo lucky she has first dibs on Fang! Plus I am totally envious of her wings


Victoria (VictoriaLove) | 5 comments Love Max! She is strong and very human- like in an unhuman way. Do you get what I`m saying?


Hannah (cloveshay) | 110 comments Totally ;)


Webiny | 28 comments Yeah I love that she's tough, smart, got a motherly soft spot, not playing the damsel in distress bit, and not boy crazy. I only just started reading Final Warning, so I'm not too much into her relationship(s) but I suppose I'll like that part too.

My only complaint is that she's not big on listening... at all. Have you noticed that almost every conversation with The Organization or its representatives has ended with her blowing her top before she gets answers? It's like she starts hearing what Jeb has to say, makes smart mouth replies, and then she kicks him in the face and flies away. It can get tiresome.

But other than that I think she's a great protag.


Tori (toridanielle) | 12 comments I think Max is a total heroine. She is strong, independent, and protective! She can handle her own :)


Annabel ♥ (cinnamonbliss) | 4559 comments Max is really cool! I only read the first book but she was a perfect heroine.


Olivia (DrBrennan17) | 194 comments Max is amazing:)

(view spoiler) Feel the same way about the Fang and Max part though and I really hate Dylan. (view spoiler)

It would be perfect because James Patterson can't just break up Max and Fang after building them up over almost all the books I mean that's just not ok. Dylan can go jump off a cliff if he doesn't want to be with Maya.

It really would be the perfect ending. But James Patterson says someone is going to die, so maybe it will be dylan. Hopefully not fang or max!

Dylan needs to die. If Fang dies I will never read another James Patterson book...but I feel like it might be Fang because Angel said (view spoiler) I'd also be ok with Maya dying.


message 18: by Emma (new) - rated it 5 stars

Emma FANG MUST NOT DIE!!!!!! maya and dylan can both just go die in a hole together.

Agreed! Honestly I have no idea where James Patterson is going to go with this.


message 20: by Emma (new) - rated it 5 stars

Emma He is wayyyyy to unpredictable. Honestly, I like it when books are predictable, because if it's going to be disappointing then at least you can brace yourself for it!


message 21: by Ela (new) - rated it 3 stars

Ela I've only read the first three but I really liked Max, what I thought was good was the fact that to begin with Patterson didn't specify that she was girl; it took me a while to work that out.
I would really like Ella(?) and her mum(the vet) to come into it again, I thought that circumstance was really interesting.

Oh, the series only gets better! (until it gets frustrating!) but it is amazing! you should really keep reading if you weren't already going to.

But being unpredictable keeps readers on there toes. I'm just annoyed because the book isn't here yet and that James Patterson created Dylan in the first place. I tend to like books that are unpredictable but when you have to wait this long for the next book it's torture!

If I remember correctly Angel came out around Feb 14 so that means we've been waiting for over a year!

Okay I might see if I can find the next one then...:)


Farhia (farhia97) | 195 comments I love Max; her attitude, strength...her whole personality. But, I felt after the Final Warning (which I've hated) she changes and acts less tough, her inner self showing through. Anyways, I still loved her

I feel the same way!


christina | 10 comments I really love Max, but near the end of the series she gets slightly annoying. The whole Fang/ Dylan thing gets exhausting.


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 3538 comments Max is a very strong heroine. I love how loyal she is to her pack and how she would do just about anything for them. Even though I really enjoyed Max's character, I wasn't that impressed with everything else. I'm debating whether I should read the third book or not.
