The power of six by Pittacus Lore review

Description from back cover. 
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 us. 
Nine 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 Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed. I am Number Seven. One of six still alive. And I'm ready to fight. 

After reading book one and absolutely loving it I thought there was no way book two could be any better and boy was I wrong! 
The author introduces a few more characters into this expanding story. I loved that the book followed from the last and did not just go straight to another character like some series do. I enjoyed the way the book moved from one set of characters to the other which in my view kept things fresh and flowing. 

You really learn the extent of the Mogadorian’s reach on earth and how the odds are really against the remaining Lorien race. I felt that I had a lot of questions answered yet i still had more I need to be answered which kept me glued to the book. 

There was a lot of great interaction between characters and the drama and emotion building throughout the book. The more the characters bloom in the book the more danger you feel looming from all sides and it left with this feeling of anticipation for what was to come. 

I can happily say this has to be one of my favorite series i have read so far and i can’t wait to see what the author writes next. This series has so far only gone from strength to strength which give me good feelings about the rest of the series.

  1. This one was a disappointment for me. But the ending was good and looking forward to Rise of Nine.
