Book Review: The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore

To defeat the Mogadorian leader Setrakus Ra, the Gardes must come together and fight as one. The Lorien Legacies trilogy concludes with The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore.

Gardes vs. Mogadorians

For years, nine teenagers (known as Gardes) from the planet Loren have been on the run from an evil race known as the Mogadorians. With three Gardes already killed and the addition of a tenth, only seven teens remain to defeat countless Mogs, including their leader Setrakus Ra.

The Government's Greed

There’s only two problems: the first is that the Mogs are working with the U.S. government in order to find and imprison the Gardes in exchange for rare fuels and powerful alien weaponry. Little do they know that once the Mogs kill the Gardes, they intend to destroy planet Earth and all its inhabitants.

Scattered

The second problem is that the seven remaining Gardes are dispersed across the world. Number 4 and Number 9 are traveling together, hoping to find the rest. Meanwhile, Numbers 6, 7 and 10 are on a quest to find Number 8. That just leaves the elusive Number 5. In order to defeat the Mogs once and for all and return to their beloved planet Loren, the Gardes must unite and fight the biggest battle of their lives.

The Bottom Line

The Rise of Nine concludes the Lorien Legacies trilogy by Pittacus Lore. It didn’t quite compare to the first two books in the series (I Am Number Four, and The Power of Six) as most of the book was spent traveling to find one another. On the plus side, there was plenty of high action moments throughout the story, making up for the limited plot. This may not be the best of the three, but we still definitely recommend this series!

No, I've done proper research unlike you it seems, Loads of the news is controlled by Israel such as BBC so is biased against Palestine anyway. You seem to insist that it is the Jews rightful homeland when it wasn't. The jews didn't have anywhere so they decided to invade Palestine many years ago and call it Israel, that doesn't make it their rightful homeland, does it? -.- And you can't expect to know everything about it if you just go to one side of the battle. Go to Palestine's side and you will see it is so much worse. But your too ignorant to think that and so you have a biased opinion. How do you expect Hamas to have ceasefire when they are trying to claim back their freedom. I'm not saying I agree with their methods but it isn't surprising really. And you do realise the tunnels are for supplies of clean water, medicine, etc   for the Palestinians as its the only way for them to get aid in seeing as though Israel has imprisoned them and is controlling everything that goes in and out. The Israeli's aren't even letting them have clean water! And most of these are innocent people! And even worse, Israel are targetting these tunnels so there is no way the Palestinians can get aid. No nation should have to put up with that!
