In Pittacus Lore’s The Rise of Nine, third in the New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series, the stakes are higher than ever as John, Six, and Seven try desperately to find the rest of the Garde before it’s too late.

The Mogadorians who destroyed the planet Lorien continue to hunt down the Garde, the small group of Loric survivors who have taken refuge on Earth. The Garde must come together. They are Lorien and Earth’s only hope.

During the dangerous mission at the Mogadorian base in West Virginia, John found and rescued Nine. But even with their combined powers, special abilities known as Legacies, the pair barely escaped with their lives—and they lost Sam in the process.

In order to save our world and their own, John and Nine must join forces with Six and Seven, who have been battling the Mogadorians in Spain and who are now trying to locate Number Eight in India.

Power in numbers will save us all.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
