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!

Because a smart phone is exceedingly more efficient than a library at finding information, in just about every way. I don't understand this idea that we should slow our progress specifically to keep books or libraries, or anything else. Of course, I do not think we should get rid of existing libraries or books, but this idea that we need to 'slow down' is completely contrary to everything I feel about technology. We would not reserve ourselves to horse bound carriages when most people can drive a car.

But I think we should scale back a bit and enjoy the simpler things, like books and libraries.  I agree
