Plot

In the third book of the series Maximum Ride, Max is faced with the task of saving the world from the Itex corporation and the evil Director, who wants to terminate all recombinant DNA life-forms and cut the population of the earth by half. The Erasers were some of the first to be destroyed and have been replaced by the new threat: Flyboys (robotic Erasers that can fly).Fang is trying to persuade her to give up running and instead just live an easy life. Fang and Max go to doctor Martinez's house where Max gets her chip removed. They get stuck with the rest at the school and Jeb declares this has all been a dream. Later on they escape with the help of Ari. Further issues arise when Max invites Ari—the single remaining Eraser—to join the group, leaving Fang and half of the flock to split off in protest, with Max the leader of one group, and Fang the leader of the second. And in the midst of all this, Max eventually finds out who her real parents are; Jeb and the ever so kind Dr. Martinez. But she is stuck at a fort, that looks like a castle, fighting a new experiment, a boy named OMEGA. Max beats off Omega (a young boy that is seemingly perfect in his looks and skills).
