From the Back Cover
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." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.See all Product Description

First thing's first: as much as I love this series, it needs wrapping up in the next book. There is only so long I can keep reading like this. What I am referring to is not the ridiculously fast, Mogadorian blasting pace. It's the Chests that almost all the Garde members carry about. I want to know what the stuff inside is (probably more than the Garde members do at this point!!) and I am starting to get a little annoyed when new things get pulled out and are suddenly super useful. It's convenient. Too convenient. I also feel really sorry for everyone that everywhere they go, they have to lug these ridiculous chests around with them; its like painting a sign over their heads that says "Alien from Lorien, come shoot me!"... and there are PLENTY of Mogadorians around who would love to do that. To be honest, there are so many Mogadorians about it is kind of surprising that they haven't won already; they must be super stupid.
That said, I freaking LOVE these books. They aren't deep, but they are exciting, page-turning and full of cool powers which I want to have.Read more ›
Rise of the Nine, book 3 of the Lorien Legacies series, quite simply as good as book one and book 2. Tight plot, clear and well defined characters, each with their own unique voice that comes across clearly all the way through the book. Not many people can pull off the multi narrator style but the author does it with style. What is essentially a film franchise is so much more in these books, great imagination, built on some very good writing.
The books pace is highly charged and driven by short (style) chapters, when reading it I could not put the book down because there was always another corner to look around, another chapter I could fit in before sleep. It builds to highly anticipated and exciting end.
It's a shame that there isn't any growth, being as good as the last book should be enough, but im looking for improvement, for more.
Given the volume of bad guys in this book I really expected the overall plot to move further, is the author spinning this out ?
Will I read the next one? Yes very much so, it's a fun book, its not taxing and its fast paced, that's what escapism is about.

The original idea is brilliant, but we are now getting frenzied bouts of activity 'linked' with gooey bits of dialogue between the characters who are no longer real, but parodies of the quite interesting folk we saw in the first two. And whenever they get in a tight scrape another (appropriate) Legacy (super power) immediately appears and 'with one bound our friends are free'!
No one is really explaining why the FBI and Mogadorians are in cahoots and, given the latters fire power why they need to bother. And will someone please get out the instruction manual from their Chest and find out what is inside!
And l have to say that Enid Blyton was better at relationships (Noddy and Big Ears) than Mr Lore. The 'issues' or 'love interest' elements of the book are almost farcical at this stage.
If l were a cynic l would conclude that the author and his publisher are trying to get the series out as fast as possible before the 'puff' is gone. Will l buy number 4 in the series? Well only if its REALLY cheap or l cannot borrow it. There must be a concluding episode where the Mogadorians and Mr Ra get their comeuppance! But please make it soon.
Seriously, there are plenty of books out there aimed at the younger reader which are very well written and enjoyed by a wider audience too. Pittacus Lore seems completely unable to maintain that standard. What a shame.
