My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Huh no way, I thought there would only be 3 books. Well I’d totally read this because I really liked The Power of Six, though I do have to read The Rise of Nine still. I wonder how many books will be in this series?

You know, when you can’t believe what you just read, you can’t believe you feel almost teary, then it must be good. I’m a little stunned by the ending. I had already guessed the traitor, he was pretty damn shifty, but you kind of overlook it because he’s a self-proclaimed, socially awkward person. The next thing. I was relieved when certain prophecies were avoided in the previous book. But then in this one, you realise, there are some that just can’t be avoided in the end. And pairings. My heart is with Marina at the end there. She and Eight are so cute together.

The Plot
The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?

John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.

But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they’re hiding out in Nine’s Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.

The six of them are powerful, but they’re not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More importantly, they’ll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.

And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it’s too late.

The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.

Lorien will rise again.

There aren’t many plot twists in this one, but there is a major plot twist at the end which I had never expected. Gosh, it made me teary.

The Characters

They have all grown on me. Even Nine. He’s more likeable in this one I think, in comparison to the one before. I like that the author gives us different perspectives. Though the font for Sam’s voice and Marina’s are nearly the same, so I had a bit of a hard time distinguishing sometimes, especially if their sections were one after another. But it’s funny, we have really only seen from Four/John’s perspective, Seven/Marina, Six/Maren, I think? I wonder what’s it like inside Nine’s head. He seems like a bag of fun lol.

The Setting
Chicago. They are in Chicago in Nine’s wicked awesome apartment.

Overall
A great sequel. This just gets better with every sequel I read. There’s everything. There’s emotion, action, love, conflicts, fights, wars, battles, friendship, family, happy moments, sad moments, and expectation. I have expectations for the next one, and it better blow my mind! Gosh, I hardly even know what to say about this one. It’s just awesome.
