The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore (3 reviews)

The Power of Six 
HarperCollins    2011

       The cliche science fiction found in I Am Number Four is gone from Pittacus Lore's next book, The Power of Six. The series returns to John Smith, the fourth Garde that arrived on Earth from his original planet Lorien, and with it comes a new cast of characters (including Number Seven, who is introduced in the first chapter and narrates her own passages). The plot is charged with alien action and new discoveries that are exciting and fills you with adrenaline. The romance is the only thing holding this back from being truly amazing; Pittacus Lore is good at fighting scenes, but romance?... Not so much. The characters are still likeable, witty, and funny, and each member of the Garde that is introduced are individuals and unique. I'm very excited for the next book in the Lorien Legacies what with the huge cliffhanger that the author has left for us in The Power of Six. Readers will fall in love with the twist in this new installment, and will be hungering for more, just as I will be.     

Rating: 4 Better than most

        This is the sequel to I Am Number Four and follows directly after the events in book one. It was way better than the first one because the story progressed a lot faster and also because it had way more action and mogodorian killing than the first. I really loved this book and can't wait for the next in the series.   

Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book
