[Read my review of I Am Number Four]
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.
“Holy crap!” Sam says, his eyes wide-open.
Holy crap is right, Sam Goode.
I had some worries in the long months awaiting the sequel to I Am Number Four. My top worry was The Power of Six would not focus on Number Four. *whew* Thankfully, it did! I was concerned. My second concern was a side effect of the first concern - less Bernie Kosar. I'm happy to say I worried for nothing!
The Power of Six does focus on Number Seven, too (like the book description says), but we also get to learn about Six and why she's such a badass.
This book was awesome. I cannot say enough good things about this series as a whole. It has the perfect mix of kickass powers, heart stopping suspense, loyal friendship, and far-fetched fun. If you haven't read I Am Number Four, you definitely need to read it before picking up The Power of Six.
The wait for book three is going to be even harder than the wait for The Power of Six! My google powers have revealed to me there will be six books in all. I look forward to each and every one of them!
Have you read I Am Number Four? Are you planning to read The Power of Six?
