Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel is the seventh book in the Maximum Ride series created by James Patterson. Angel begins with one of max's dreams. In her dream, she is back at the school and fang is there to help her. She wakes up realizes Dylan had been watching her sleep. They then have a minor fight in which he kisses Max. It is said when Fang left the flock in the previous book, Max broke down and Nudge called Dr. Martinez (who is also max's mom) to ask her if the flock could stay with them. Soon after Max and Dylans' fight, Jeb and Dr. Gunther Hagen arrive at the house. Dr. Gunther Hagen tells them that soon Max and Dylan will have to get together to breed (can he get any weirder?) and max, her mom and the flock all dismiss the idea as outrageous. They decide to check out a nearby school for other munants. Everyone but Max enters the private jet, max flies there. While flying, max notices that there is a wire/electric fence surrounding the school. She tries to warn the jet but it doesn't notice until they have flown through the invisible fence. As the plane quickly drops, Dylan manages to get the door open and get everyone but Dr.Gunther Hagen out. When Nudge got out, she got tangled in more wires. Iggy comes to help her and he, too, gets stuck. Max grabs onto her mom, who can't fly, and they safely land. Gazzy gets Jeb- who also cant fly- but cant support his weight. Jeb notices and asks Gazzy to drop him. He also says "I will have to die to save you. Just like you will have to die to save Earth" which freaks Gazzy out and sends him into a differnet quiet mood for a couple of days. Just as Jeb is about to hit the ground, Max catches him. Angel goes back to help Iggy and Nudge. When everyone is finally on the ground, the plane crashes, along with Dr. G-H, who never managed to get out. Max notices Dylan wasnt there to help and gets very mad at him then realizes that dylan is sad Dr. GH is gone because Dylan was closest to him. They call and amblulence that takes everyone but Max and Dylan away. Max decides to stay and help Dylan search for any thing to remember him and/or the remains of him himself.
