Audiobooks The Power of Six By Pittacus Lore –

I ve finally read the highly anticipated sequel to I Am Number Four I love how the author wrote it in two perspectives John s and Marina s.The Power of Six is much action packed than the first There are some issues of betrayal and love and sacrifices Six, you badass alien, I think I like you too.It s definitely worth the wait and when s the third book coming out I NEED MORE. 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 UsNine 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 MalaysiaNumber Two In EnglandAnd Number Three In KenyaThey Tried To Catch Number Four In Ohio And FailedI Am Number Seven One Of Six Still AliveAnd I M Ready To Fight If you ever know a man who tries to drown his sorrows, kindly inform him his sorrows know how to swim The Power of Six was not what I d expected, the book was slow in the beginning, its story revolves around Number Seven I think most of her parts were boring I m curious, in spite of the title about Number Six, why this book is all about Number Seven Her character is not strong as the others, and not for my taste, yet I hope that Pittacus put her here for some reason I just hope The key to change is letting go of the fear However, I didn t like John s lovetriangle, it was so weird and awkward I was quite disappointed with this book, it should have done better with its fabulous plot and pace like the first one I hated John, too, he was changed and very shilly shally, he s supposed to be dependent after all he has been through Never lose faith in yourself, and never lose hope remember, even when this world throws its worst and then turns its back, there is still always hope But all I can think is that the disappointing things in this book were happened for some reason because the next one is the best I can t believe it that Pittacus could redeem this series perfectly.Thai review Rating Clarification 4.5 StarsAbsolutely INTENSE There are only six of us left Six of us against any number of them And no way of knowing how we might possibly find one another We re the only hope Strength in numbers The power of sixWow Now this is what I call adrenaline pumping, high impact action I felt I was on a turbo jet ride that wouldn t stop O.O There wasn t one moment in this book where I let my guard down or allowed myself to settle into a false sense of security or saftey Hell, even I felt hunted There was just so much happening that by the time I was done with The Power of Six I felt absolutely exhausted Loved it And call me crazy, but I m ready for Bring it on DThe Power of Six is the next installment in the Lorien Legacies and let me tell you, whether or not you re a fan of alien SciFi, this book will grab you and take you on an adventure the just won t quit This book kicks off immediately after the disastrous events that took place in book one and Sam, Six and Four are not only on the run from the Mogs, but now the FBI is after them for what went down in Paradise Ohio This loyal trio uses their time on the road to train and try to uncover the secrets to their past that will hopefully help them see a future in Loric The The Power of Six also introduces the second POV of number Seven as Marina narrates her journey where she s hiding out in a small Spanish village among the Sisters Her Cepan Adeline has decided to abandon her responsibilities of training Seven for survival against the Mogs, but that doesn t stop this determined character of discovering her legacies and trying to locate her inheritance What unfolds is a series of dangerous encounters between members of the Garde and Mogs and a ton of action that keeps you on the edge of your seat.I will say that I m disappointed in two characters, including Marina s Cepan Adeline It sucked to see this Cepan let number Seven down by giving up on her mission to train and help Marina prepare for survival in this battle Her change of heart towards the end was a little too late, and I was proud of Seven s ability to power forward and figure out a way to survive on her own In addition, what Sarah did to Four I feel was unnecessary I think it was a convenient plot twist to open the way for Four and Six to explore a possible relationship, which by the way I m all for It was great to meet three members of the Garde, and I can t wait to discover the final two The two major twists in this book really changed the direction of the story as we find not only the two new members of the Garde Seven and Nine but also discover there was a second ship the left Loric with number Ten She s younger than the others and so far, she s only revealed one legacy because of her age Also, we meet the leader to the Mogs, Setrakus Ra that s just arrived to Earth and sure to bring this war to a whole new level.Overall, the characters are fierce, the narration is fast paced, and the storyline is by far As the previous installment, the ending is cliff hanger painful and despite the constant action and continuous mental energy required to keep up, I can t wait from the next installment We re missing two Lorien Gardes and I m eager to meet them The power this group can combine is going to bring this end game to a collision course of epic proportions Excitement Members of the GardeNumber Four John Resistant to fire,

to get a copy of this book and at one point, I sort of lost my enthusiast in reading this sequel to I am Number Four, because I guess, I waited too long But when I read the book ,it was as if I haven t left the prequel at all This book grabbed me from hanging off the cliff as the members of the garde gradually find one another I just felt a bit annoyed at Four for his fickle emotions for both Sarah and Six. I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher for a honest, fair review This is me being honest I m not sure if it s fair I did not like the first book of this series, and I had decided not to waste my time on the sequel I should have gone with my gut reaction and stayed far, far away from this book Why did I read it The better question is, why did I bother seeing the movie after disliking the book so greatly The answer to that question is simpler, the tickets were free How doth one pass up free stuff Oh I know, when they lead to crap.Where was I Oh yes So I saw the movie and thought, hey, this didn t suck complete arse, I wonder what is going to happen next Then we Bookworms got a free copy of The Power of Six from the publisher and I thought, Self, how bad could it really, truly be Give this series another chance Damn my curious soul.5 reasons why I just don t like this book 1 The Power of Six switches back and forth between two different perspectives that of Number 4 and Number 7 The only link between the two perspectives is that they are both Lorien Their stories never coherently messed together and going back and forth was jarring and often took me out of the story.2 Forced love triangles I despise them when they are well done, and I loath them when they are forced into a story just for the hell of having one The love triangle square in this book was a nightmare.3 This book lacked passion, tone, voice, and in general, felt like a robot wrote it It just made me sick to my stomach.4 Simply stated NOTHING HAPPENS Once again, I spent most of the time I was reading this book literally and figuratively twiddling my thumbs When things did happen they were so cliche and just empty that I couldn t help the eye rolls not to mention snorts.5 I NEVER connected with any of the characters They were all one dimensional, saying and doing things that just didn t made sense John Number 4 might be the worst protagonist ever written And Hector the drunken pedophile might be the creepiest secondary character love interest ever written shudders My biggest beef, however, has to do with the authors infamous James Frey unknown Jobie Hughes I just feel like there is something wonky about these books, their exploitation of the Twilight craze, and their willingness to be formulaic and barely mediocre just to make a buck I m sorta ashamed of myself for reading them.It is rare that I will hate on a book and even rarer that I will do it publicly I feel that every writer deserves respect, that their stories are their children I would never walk up to someone, no matter how much I disliked their child, and tell them their son daughter sucks and they created something terrible But in this case, I feel that the authors of these books are not only giving a bad name to YA literature, but taking their fans for a ride They don t seem to have a passion for the craft, but simply a passion for the almighty dollar This isn t their child, it s their meal ticket It s shameful It s sad And it makes me all ranty and angry The end. Loved this sequel We meet of the Legacies in this book and I loved every one of them I love the interaction between the characters and oh my god this book was so griping it s crazy The story is definitely moving forward fast and there was so much action just like the first book My only complaint about this book was the romance was a bit cringeworthy and childish and I m also not loving Sarah any She needs to leave Other than that, the book was all kinds of fun Sorry but if you are not going to be constructive then why are you dragging on about hating the book and only reading it because the guy who played Alex rider in stormbreaker is in it P.s You can t really comment on a book that isn t out yet and therefore you can t have read Goo drool over Alex whats his name. The first volume I sort of read by mistake last year but it was ok Obviously I am not exactly the target audience so would not expect my excitement to have me rush to the bookshop and batter on the door till number two volume was handed to me but even i was amazed that i ambled along quite merrily for months without giving the slightest stuff about number 4 and his collected band of Mog battlers And is it only me who keeps imagining dear old Judith Kerr s creation standing in the middle of the book yowling why, why all this hate for poor little me JK Rowling evidently had the whole of the Potter saga in her head when she began and though people may criticize her for many things I do not think anyone gets the impression that she suddenly, halfway through a novel thought, Oh lets turn the whole concept on its head by changing things or creating characters who are fundamental but did not exist anywhere before.Let me list some points to ponder.1 Adelina.what was her faith journey abouttotally unbelievable and ridiculous Why would she deny her vocation to fight the Mogadorians who she tried to pretend didn t exist by taking on a vocation to be a nun.2 John.the hero Last book he loved in a way he had never loved before.yeah right John that is because you were 15 so how much opportunity had you had Last book he found his first real best friend ever.this bookwhilst going on and on and on and on about the lovely Sarah, he lusts after, and not in a controlled or demure way, Number Six who just happens to be the girl his BEST FRIEND has told him he is in love withtotal arse Oh and he leaves aforsaid best friend to torture and death at the hands, the many hands, of the frankly crap alien fighters I mean come on, these are the hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of enormous, evil, muscular alien soldiers bred and trained to capture and kill two or three people at a time They are hopeless the phrase crash and burn was made for these badass dudes.sorry i have been reading the tripe that is Pittacus Lore s youf speak for a day and a half now and I think it might be catching 3 If the hero and his bunch or indeed any of the stars were running out of one place where they were cornered and happened to stumble, quite by chance, upon the very thing they were looking know things like chests, daggers, keys, real character development, natural plot progression , then I was going to scream Actually i made those last two up obviously cos they are nowhere in sight but you probably get my drift.4 At all costs the innocent must be protected Now of course sometimes the attacks of the Mogadorians were not the fault of 4, 6, 7 etc so view spoiler when the convent is destroyed and presumably all the nuns and orphans toasted well that s war hide spoiler I think I may have actually enjoyed this book than the first in the series Scratch that, I definitely enjoyed it I was actually hesitant to start it because I enjoyed the first so much and didn t see how this one could live up to it But not only did it live up to it, it completely blew it out of the water This book is pure action from the very first second, with the group on the run from the authorities And we re also introduced to a second view point, another Loric in Spain and it only gets and interesting and crazy from there I really loved getting to know about the remaining Loric, their Legacies, their Chests and most of all, the Mogadorians Everything about this series is so damn interesting, I m officially completely and totally under its spell There were some crazy reveals and events that literally had my mind spinning and my jaw dropping, especially right at the very end I m really really loving this series and I can t wait to dive into the next book and see what it brings
