Review: The Lorian Legacies - By Pittacus Lore

Summary
In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.
The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.


Review
This book was a constant battle for me. A book that promises an action packed adventure sounded like a perfect read. Unfortunately the action was packed a little more towards the end, rather than throughout. The characters were likable although not amazing and the story itself was interesting. Books turned Movies are some of my favorites to read. Being able to experience a whole world from page to screen is just plain awesome. With that comes the classic question... What's better? The movie or the book? I gotta say... The movie definitely saved this book for me. I wasn't all that impressed with the book, but the movie left me wanting more. Worthy of three stars. That sounds about right. Should you read more? Definitely!


Summary
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.

Review
Wow!!! That seems to be the only word that I can think of at the moment. I think my mind is still trying to catch up with me lol! Talk about a roller coaster rider of AWESOME! If you thought the first book was good... this book is down right AMAZING! The non stop action leaves your breathless and begging for more! There were times when I actually had to put the book down just to control my emotions. So much happens in this book. We get answers. We meet more amazing characters. And as for the old characters.... dare I say better than EVER!!!! This book is going on my favorites list, thats for sure! All I can think now is..... I WANT MORE!!!!!! When's the next book? When's the next movie? Give me something!!! 5 stars from me! Heck I'd give it 10 if I could! This is a definite "must read" for sure! If you haven't read it yet... Your missing out!

The Lorian Legacies have taken me on one heck of a ride! Love this series! Can't wait to see what happens next!
