I’ve seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he’s a mystery. But to me . . . he’s one of us.
Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We’re hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we’ll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I’ve been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.
I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.
And I’m ready to fight.
Compelling, riveting, suspenseful. Those are the words I’ll use to describe the stunning sequel to I am Number Four, the #1 New York Times Bestseller. If you’ve already devoured the first novel in the Lorien Legacies, I’m sure you can’t wait to get your hands on this one.
But let me tell you, The Power of Six is worth the wait. Once you flip over the last page you won’t be able to wait for the next one Pittacus Lore churns out.
The Power of Six takes off right where I am Number Four left off, although John Smith, Four, isn’t the only narrator this time around. We get a glimpse of life through the eyes of another member of the Garde, Seven, also known as Marina. Marina just so happens to live on the other side of the world, in little old Spain with a Cepan very unlike Henri (John’s Cepan).
Of course, life is tough for them both, and the remainder of the surviving Garde. But The Power of Six isn’t just about running from danger, it’s about betrayal, secrets, and hinting at larger things yet to be discovered in the remaining books in the Lorien Legacies.
One thing’s for sure, The Power of Six won’t disappoint. It will be all you’ve been expecting and more. Much more. The only downside? We’ll have to wait another year for the next book!
A note for those of you who didn’t know: The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore is the second in a planned six book series (dubbed The Lorien Legacies).
