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.
I absolutely loved “I Am Number Four” and the minute I finished it, I knew I would be reading the sequel. “I Am Number Four” was good, but I believe the sequel (The Power of Six) was better. This novel was action packed, thought-provoking, romantic and funny at times, and always suspenseful.
The plot was perfect. “The Power of Six” was full of twists and turns and many surprising plot twists. Suspenseful situations and light emotional scenes were equally distributed throughout the novel. It was very hard to put this novel down! The characters were also perfectly done. They were completely relatable, intriguing, and it was very hard to imagine anything bad happening to then. You really do fall in love with Four, Six, Seven, Sam, and the rest of group.
“The Power of Six’s” writing was impeccable. Pittacus Lore ceases to provide a novel I don’t enjoy. He manages to switch from a full-throttle action-packed sci-fi scene, to a light hearted, romantic scene without a single trouble. He navigates through different POVs and opposing action without any trouble. He brings the characters together and I twines them in a deep plot, letting them slowly unwind it. Pittacus Lore also brings the readers in, gripping them by their shirt collars (do people still wear collared shirts?) and doesn’t let them go until the very end, which goes out it’s a bang and leaves you with a sigh. I can’t wait to read the sequel to this amazing series.
