I only got one new book this week, it was an unrequested review copy. I haven't read the first book, so I'm not sure when I will get to read this book.
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
In the beginning there were nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth and went into hiding, who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives but who have extraordinary skills. The Mogadorians caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. They killed them all.
John Smith is Number Four, he has just met Number Six, and he knows the survival and the fate of Lorien—and Earth—now rest in their hands.
The first book in the Lorien Legacies series, I Am Number Four, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, earned great reviews, landed on several "best of the year" lists, and has been named an Indie Next Pick. With a major motion picture from Dreamworks based on the first book hitting theaters on February 18, 2011, the second adventure in this epic saga will leave fans hungry for more.
