Book Review: The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

Nov 19, 2011

Pittacus Lore returns with his second book in the teen sci-fi series, the Lorien Legacies. Kidzworld reviews The Power of Six.

Number Four

After losing his Cepan, Henry, in a battle against the evil Mogadorians, John (Number Four), his best friend Sam, and his fellow Lorien Number Six are on the run. But leaving the quiet town of Paradise, Ohio, isn’t easy for John, namely because the love of his life, Sarah, had to stay behind. Worse still, he can’t even contact Sarah without putting her in danger. It’s not just the Mogs who are after John. The police think he’s a terrorist, so staying under the radar is crucial.

Number Six

While on the run, John begins to develop feelings for Number Six. But that’s not supposed to happen. According to Henry, Loriens’ only fall in love once, and that love lasts a lifetime. So why is he so attracted to Number Six? To make matters worse, Sam has a crush on her, too.

Number Seven

Meanwhile, Number Seven has spent years hiding in a sleepy Spanish town, just waiting for her Cepan, Katarina, to snap out of her religious slumber. When they were taken in by an orphanage, Katarina slowly forgot their purpose on the planet - to evade the Mogs until the remaining six Garde’s could unite and defeat the Mogadorians once and for all. But staying in one spot will only make it easier for the Mogs to find them.

The Bottom Line

Unlike I Am Number Four, this sequel jumps between two perspectives: Number Four’s and Number Seven’s. However, this book is just as action-packed (maybe even more so), and the characters are just as loveable (or hateable, in the Mogadorians’ case) as the first. If you like science fiction, action or dystopian novels for teens, definitely check out this series. It’s great for boys and girls!

((Papyrus is so nervous, he can't decide, so he asks if PunMaster wants to choose.)) ​Wow, is Blueberry naïve? ​My friend's soul is purple, monster souls are white. "Yes, it does look odd, doesn't it?" As fast as I can, I button up my jacket. ​"Don't tell anyone. Especially not your brother. I fear he would not think well of me." ​Papyrus's assuming of anything would most likely not play out in my favour.

Blue stared at the glow, his blue eyes large. "Is that your soul?" He asked curiously. "It looks a bit odd..." He commented, his head tilting to the side like a dog's. Proof he spent a lot of time around the dogs, to be picking up on little actions like that. (PunMaster smiled, and sat down, gently helping Papyrus sit as well, and she let him choose the puzzle)

(("I-I... I guess so..." Papyrus, from lack of social interaction, stumbled over his words like a small child. But he was smiling. If you looked very close, you could see a tear in his eye.)) ​"I've honestly never had the time for them... But I'll give it a shot..." ​I really had plenty of free time, but I never cared about puzzles much. Unfortunately, during our romp around the Underground, my coat had come un-done. ​The reason I wear my coat is to hide the glow of my friend, but now she was pulsing with light. Too late to hide it from Blueberry's stare.
