Power of Six

Finished December 9
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
This is the second in the teen series that began with I am Number Four, now a movie. That book left us with Number Four on the run with his friend Sam and Number Six. This book follows the trio as they continue their travels, gaining strength through practicing and training and learning about their situation. The book also follows Number Seven, whose adult helper has not been doing her job, but who managed to deal alone with her Legacies as they developed, and find a place to practice them. Living at an orphanage school run by nuns in a small Spanish town, Seven (Marina) tries to learn about her fellow Loriens from the Internet and prepare for dealing with the enemy that she knows will come soon. This book adds a few other Loriens as the book progresses and we start to see the Numbers finding each other and gaining strength from that knowledge and their triumphs. We also start to see some of the enemy and get a glimpse of their leader, a very imposing figure. Fast-moving, with teens dealing with common teen issues as well as their own special challenges, this book is a good sequel in the series.
