Cool. Might wanna keep updated on that, ;)
added the page -- but for now guys, stay put for next year, ;)
Hi, I'm EndOfTheEarth. I don't know if any of you were folks from the old Max-Dan-Wiz site, but if any of you are, you'll know who I was.
Maximum Ride Forever is Patterson's second stab at writing a finale to the MR series. The first three chapters are up on BN.com. Chapters 1 and 2 are mostly recap, but chapter 3 (technically chapter 1) starts with Max and the flock somewhere in the South Pacific dodging a ragingly active volcano.
Details have been sparse, but the summaries suggest ruined civilization and potentially more deaths. Whether or not these will be main characters is unknown. Chapter 3 explicitly mentions Max, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel in the action. Dylan, Fang, and Iggy are not mentioned.
Ok, got it -- Thanks for the info! Will check it out.
Chapter Four Just appeared on Patterson's site:
--Characters with speaking lines: Total, Gazzy, Dylan, Iggy, Nudge, and Fang.
--With Akila and Angel clearly mentioned in this chapter, this means that the whole flock is present and not trapped underground as Nevermore suggested.
--Max, despite the way that Nevermore ended, is STILL going back and forth between Fang and Dylan. To quote:
"Fang was my true love, but Dylan had literally been created to be a perfect partner for me: It would be against his nature not to protect me if he could. It was both endearing and maddening, because, hello? I’m not so much a damsel in distress as I am an ass-kicking mutant bird kid.
Now Dylan touched my burned hand so tenderly that for a second I forgot about being tough and was just grateful for his help during the chaos. "
--Dylan disappears at the end of the chapter after being sent to recover resources. As no chapter 5 has been posted, his status is currently unknown.
The protection on the Maximum Ride Forever page has been removed. Regular users, feel free to help add to it! :)
Found a Longer excerpt:
Chapter 3 (5)
--Max and the original flock make it safely to a cave. Still no Dylan
--The island is the island from the end of Nevermore. Tsunami from the end of Nevermore flooded the underground caves. Ms. Martinez and Ella supposedly trapped inside, fate unknown. Still no idea how the rest of Max's flock got out.
--Nudge described as having gotten older physically. "twelve-year-old Nudge had shot past me and was now almost six feet tall--as tall as Fang."
--Angel and Max continue to but heads. "We'd pretty much resolved our differences since she tried to overthrow me as leader of the flock, but she still had her moments. Right now, dirty-faced, wild-haired, and firm-chinned, the flock's youngest member looked like a short, blonde dictator." Max wants to go out and find Dylan, but the weather is hazardous. When Max moves to search anyway, Angel calls Fang, who tries to stop Max.
--Max resists, to the point of physically attacking Fang. "I pulled a fist free and punched him hard."
--Reiterates that Max is reconsidering her romantic position again. "Or does Dylan make me feel...something more?"
Proof copies of MR:F now exist. Keep your eyes peeled for reviews/spoilers.
Will do. ;)
