A brief summary of this book would be, So 6 kids (Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angle) still on the run from Erasers. So it's been 24 hours since they have seen an Eraser and everything seemed as it should until on there flight to get away from the School, Max suddenly just drops like a stone and Fang dives under, her carrying her down to a flat area where she regains her consciousness but not for long. 5 minutes later Max passes out and sees a bunch of pictures about New York City and this place called The Institute. So they decide to go to New York and stay in the National park there. 3 days later they find The Institute and rescue a bunch of children and Angle sees that on of them was a talking dog called Total. So they get out of the tunnels and leave the dangers of New York and decide to go to Virginia were Fang gets his butt kicked by Ari (Ari is a Eraser who they new from there childhood) . Then a man who was jogging along the beach noticed that a butt ton of sand by the flock had turned a dark red color. So later an ambulance picks them up and well you now the drill. At the hospital the next morning a FBI agent named Anne Walker took them to her house and enroled the in school. Later they found out that Anne was actually 2nd in command under ter Botch. later in the story max gets a voice tasking her to save the world.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5 because, I love how the writer expressed the characters feeling so you actually thought that they were human and not made up. I also gave it such a positive rating because the she made the book so full of excitement, adventure, humor, and real life situations that it just made you want to read even more. I recommend you read this book if you like twisted outcomes, adventure, humor, action, explosions, and cliff hangers. I love this book so much that one night I was so into it that I read 105 pages. That's how good of a book this is. My favorite part was when Fang got revenge on Ari and taught Ari a very painful lesson. That's why I gave this book the rating of 5 out of 5. ( )

Pretty fun YA adventure. Like the first book in the series, it works better if you don't look too closely at the plot. It has some pretty big holes in it. The characters have no depth, but as the title implies, you're there for the fast paced action. Besides, the kids can fly - pretty cool. ( )

Well, that wasn't as good as I hoped. I enjoyed the first book better. Patterson continues not to give direction to his characters and stories. Everything goes so fast in such an organized way. He can not organize his story or write a correct story... I was interested in where the Flock were heading and what would happen next. Honestly, the twists and turns were ridiculous but I still want to know what happens in the end. ( )

I feel so bad for these kids. All they have is themselves. They really deserve a family ( )

Come il primo Patterson non ci delude, bello e coinvolgente la saga sale di livello mostrando forze e debolezze della protagonista principale, Max.
Dal punto di vista della 'suspance' è decisamente migliore del primo e comincia a piantare i primi semi dell'intrigo alla base del quale si svolgerà tutta la terza parte. Decisamente molto bello. ( )

As for the rest of you—well, where have you been? Meet Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge, and Angel, six absolutely unforgettable kids. With some major problems. THEY'RE BEING HUNTED BY KILLERS. BUT WHO?
