Description

Maximum Ride and the rest of the Flock have barely recovered from their last arctic adventure when they are confronted by their most frightening challenge yet.

Someone-or something-is decimating ships and sea life off Hawaii's coast, and Max and her flock find themselves sucked into the Navy's top-secret investigation of the catastrophe. Their objective: Rescue Max's activist mom from a wicked subterranean enemy. The hitch: They must dive deep into dark waters, where gruesome evil dwells . . . and for high-flying Maximum Ride, could there be anything more terrifying than being trapped in the great abyss?

With high-flying thrills, this soaring adventure takes Maximum Ride and the Flock into terrifying new territory-fans, hold your breath!
