As with all these short novella stories we gain greater insight into the characters and events of the main books. This book provides two stories about Number Five, his early years and his recruitment to the Mogadorian cause. Right from the start you realise that Five really is a good guy who just makes bad decisions, and is lead into a life not entirely of his choosing. Bad luck and circumstance make him into the damaged, antisocial loner that he becomes, and with the two stories you begin to see him in a whole new light.
The third story is all about Mark James and Sarah in the aftermath of the battle at Paradise High School, as they struggle to understand this new secret alien threat and the governments involvement in it all. Determined to help John Smith and the other Garde anyway they can, Mark and Sarah put themselves in danger, and when Sarah is kidnapped Mark sets out to find her and help bring down the Mogs anyway he can.
