Review by Joey Kunczewski.
Max, and the rest of the mutant bird flock, are recruited to help the U.S. military uncover the mystery of dying fish. Max and the Flock agree and pass their military classes with flying colors. Max's mixed emotions are all jumbled up, but the Flock has to get to the bottom of this. I really enjoyed this book. The whole series is good, but this is one of my favorites. It is really adventurous and dangerous, but so thrilling and is easy to get hooked on at the same time. I recommend parental guidance because of the violence, but 6th grade and up are good ages.
