The Power of Six
Title: The Power of Six
Author: Pittacus Lore
Year Published: 2011
Synopsis: I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith (number four,) is 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. I am number seven. 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.
I am Number Four, I am next
After being discovered in Paradise Ohio, John has been on the run from the police and the Mogadorians. He no longer thinks that he can make it out alive, unless he manages to reunite with all the others, but where to look first?
Why?: I read I Am Number Four, and enjoyed it enough to want to read the sequel. So... here we are!
Expectations: I expect this novel to continue the story of I Am Number Four, but from the viewpoint of another Lorien. I'm expecting it to be better than I Am Number Four since the story is already established.
Judging a book by its cover: The cover looks like a puddle... Maybe Number 7 has a legacy dealing with water? Or water is important? We shall see...
