The Power of Six

Title: The Power of Six
Author: Pittacus Lore
Series: Lorien Legacies
Genre: Fiction
Audience: Young Adult
Format: Book - library

From Goodreads: 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

What I thought: I picked this up from the library at the same time I picked up I Am Number Four. Figured if I was going to read one I might as well read the other. Like I Am Number Four, I don't have a lot to say about this. It was enjoyable, but not spectacular. I did get to the point where I wondered how many battles they could fight, how many "hopeless" situations they could miraculously get out of. I'll most probably read number 3 when it comes out, but I won't be in a huge hurry.

Recommended for: not sure. Those who enjoy the current trends in YA fiction.
