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!
