Fans of the thrilling books, I Am Number Four and The Power of Six will welcome this third installment of the series by the mysterious Pittacus Lore. We follow the remaining members of the planet Lorien’s Garde as they struggle against the Mogadorians. If none of this makes sense to you, go back to the first sentence. If you are still with me, then you will enjoy hearing about the continued trials of these nine young aliens with strange and amazing powers. Especially interesting to this reader was number six, whose power is invisibility, yet still manages to be captured by the FBI. Teen readers will enjoy these extraordinarily talented young people who have the heart of heroes and find ways to work together despite their many different views of how this war should be won. This will be a treat for the readers who like the action genre and anyone else who just likes a good read. Although sometimes it seems as though the Mogs only show up when the story needs a little pick-me-up, this book remains true to the original and I think most readers will jump in and enjoy the ride.
