Synopsis (Goodreads)
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.

Review
It’s been almost a year since I read I Am Number Four but I have decided to take this out of my library and give it a go. When I started it, it was as if I had never been away. My library gives you 2 months to read a book (unless you want to renew it) and I had The Power of Six read and returned in only 3 days.

The Power of Six now adds another point of view into the Lorien Legacies and it is just as good as I Am Number Four was.

I cannot wait to see what else the author has in store for these characters, and hopefully it won’t take me as long to pick up the next book.
