Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others—including John.

But so are they.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York—but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.

But they'll have to fight us first.

    " I see Kellan Lutz as Number Nine. "

    " The Rise of Nine is the latest installment in the wonderful "Lorien Legacies" series by Pittacus Lore. The series is set in our modern day world and revolves around Four, an alien teenager from a dead planet called Lorien, fighting to protect the world against an evil alien race with the help of the last remaining members of his race - all teens just like him, born and bred to fight the vicious Mogidorians. I have read and enjoyed the first two books in the series, I Am Number Four and The Power of Six. The series isn't necessarily a favorite of mine books aren't especially profound or incredibly life-changing. They're nothing ground-breakingly original, but I still enjoy them - because, well, they're fun. After all, who doesn't enjoy a tale of evil aliens? The characters are fresh and easy to relate to, the plot is easy to follow, and the dialogue rarely gets boring. This book is perfect if you're finishing a long, challenging book and are looking for a light, easy read. "

    " Finally- more suspense! I liked this book the most out of the trilogy. Once again, the rapidly-changing perspective from different characters; writing in this style does make the experience more memorable overall. I enjoyed the addition of new characters as the group nears their final battle! I did not like the ending of the book- I don't see how an enemy could so easily escape from a battle and not be pursued. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/3/2014

    " Monsters, and aliens, and earth. Oh my! This continuation of the saga of the Loriens leaves us waiting for the next installment. Most of the teen would-be saviors of Lorien have finally teamed up to battle the evil Mogadorians and save Earth on the way to reclaim their own planet. What teen (or anyone for that matter) WOULDN'T dream of the powers of invisibility, teleportation, and strength (among others)? The US government is involved with the bad guys, which makes things even more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Silviano | 2/1/2014

    " These books just keep getting better and better. While it does take me some time to get re-used to the way they're written, it doesn't detract from the great storyline that is involved. These is definitely an action packed book but I do enjoy the brief moments of peace that add to the plot line, just as much as the battles that the group comes up against. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/25/2014

    " FRUSTRATING! Great book. It's frustrating because I forgot much of what happened in the first and second books waiting for this one to come out. now I have to wait 8 months for the 4th book to come out to read more. I had a hard time putting it down. Can't wait for #4 to come out! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marlie | 1/23/2014

    " I can't suspend my disbelief long enough to enjoy this series. The characters and the universe is so vaguely described that everything the characters and their enemies do comes as a complete surprise. You get a lot of justification post-facto instead of universe building. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Almero Wellies | 1/16/2014

    " unraveled a bit towards the end but it was a great read all-in-all. Really can't wait for the next one to come out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa Rodriguez | 1/16/2014

    " I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but although this series is good, it had its slow moments that I kinda just sped through. Some characters I like more than others and the POV changes between several characters. So I was more interested in reading some sections than others. Also whenever there's a change in POV the font changes but you always have to read a couple of lines to figure out who it is. Overall I enjoyed it especially if you like action and fight scenes and I can't wait til the 4th book comes out in August. "

    " Another great book in the series! Again, we read from different viewpoints so we dont just read about one garde member. we meet a couple new numbers this time and theres all kinds of good action. and sarah hart's back!! yay! cant wait for the next book!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lewis Allan | 12/18/2013

    " I thought the power of six would be hard to top, and as this series seems to be heading, this book is better than the last. The ending was sensational and was probably the fastest book I've read! Could not put this book done, very eager for the next one, the fall of five! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josie | 2/21/2013

    " This book seems better than the other two. Here is more action and you get to meet the new characters. Both eight and nine are rearms characters and they really help to make the book more interesting. :) Annoying now that I have to wait for book 4 to come out. :( "
