In the seventh book in the bestselling series, evil scientists are still trying to convince Max that she needs to save the world, this time by providing the genetic link in speeding up the pace of evolution. Worse, they're trying to convince her that her perfect mate is Dylan, the newest addition to the flock. The problem is that, despite herself, Max is starting to believe it. Fang travels the country collecting his own gang of evolved humans, but the two separate flocks must unite to defeat a frightening doomsday cult whose motto is Save the Planet: Kill the Humans. And this time, the true heroine, for once, might just be little Angel.

Previously published on my blog: http://fictionfervor.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/review-angel-by-james-patterson/

I generally don’t review books in a series without reviewing the books before it, except I figured that you didn’t want a review of a book that I barely remembered! So, a fair warning right now. If you haven’t read all the other books in the series, don’t read this review. It may be fairly spoilery.

Angel was a bit of a disappointment for me. After the big bang that Fang ended with, I was expecting something bigger. More dramatic. More heartbreaking.

I suppose it was heartbreaking in a way, though. What with Dylan becoming closer to Max (and I being completely and utterly Team Fang), I was devastated. My love for Max has diminished greatly. I used to love her witty quips and hilarious moments (and I still do, to some extent), except now Max’s take on things have become less important to me. She’s become sillier. Confused and addled, I admit, but sillier.

On the other hand, I loved Angel’s development from bossy seven-year-old to caring and mature kid. At the end of Fang, I definitely wasn’t as big a fan of Angel as I used to be. But Angel increased my respect for the little seven-year-old girl with each act of kindness she did for Max and the flock.

The plot of the book was generally good, though a little silly. Seriously, a Doomsday group? Full of kids? Not realistic. Especially since the kids are hypnotized. But I enjoyed watching Max and the flock use kick-butt methods to try to defeat the cult. And with the ending of this book, I have a feeling that James Patterson is getting fond of cliffhangers.

All in all, though I was generally disappointed with the overall plot and romance, I think Angel would be a good read for any paranormal romance lover, though you might find it different from the regular PR.
