Book Description

The Fall of Five is the fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?

John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found one another. But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared. Now they're hiding out in Nine's Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.

The six of them are powerful, but they're not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More important, they'll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.

And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Lorien symbol—they know they are close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

For the uninitiated, I Am Number Four (2010), The Power of Six (2011), The Rise of Nine (2012), and the six related novellas may sound like a superfun math series. Fans, though, know just what to expect by now: insanely brave teens, überevil Mogadorian alien invaders, various mystical gadgets, a dash of romantic tension, and lots and lots of explosions. This time out, the mysterious flying Five has been located, and he’s a rather peculiar Lorien—can he be trusted? There is a good deal of training with magical powers here, some running around searching for the magical Phoenix Stones, and a fairly refreshing change of pace via chapters from the point of view of regular old human Sam. So how is the series holding up as readable fiction? Well, all right, if it’s your cup of tea, though diminishing returns have been the name of the game since the highly enjoyable first volume. By now, though, the series is a James Patterson–style franchise, and with plenty of numbered teens yet to be killed, expect it to keep on bashing along. Grades 7-10. --Daniel Kraus

“There’s genuine suspense…it’s easy to get lost in the world of the sweet teen from another planet.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Terrifically propulsive.” (Booklist)

“Action-packed.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Riveting.” (The Horn Book)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fall of Five - the lull before the storm August 27, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Come one, come all to Fouke, Arkansas' Monster Mart - you must've seen the online adverts - and take a peek at the infamous Boggy Creek Monster, the creature what's part man, part bear, and part gorilla. And maybe you can even catch a glimpse of Number Five, the final surviving member of the Garde we've yet to meet. In Fouke, Arkansas, outside Monster Mart, is where John and Six find him moments before the Mogadorian troops descend. And when the skirmish ends and the dust settles and you look at the blasted bits of Arkansas landscape, there's only one thing to say: "Fouke!"

THE FALL OF FIVE is the fourth book in the Lorien Legacies saga, and why would you think the author(s) would take the foot off the pedal? Sure, there are moments of respite. Even these alien teens need to catch their breath. But I love the overall pacing of the book. And those times when things do pick up, the pace achieves this hurtling locomotion. As the book opens, the Garde is back in Chicago and has sort of recovered from their collective butts getting handed to them by Setrákus Ra, terrifying leader of the Mogadorians. Some of the kids are getting restless (looking at you, Nine) and are once more, to quote an older generation, full of beans. John Smith a.k.a. Number Four - now the team's uncontested leader - decides to sanction a field op to go fetch the elusive Number Five.

I never thought I'd say this - and maybe this'll touch off a raw nerve - but the last time I was this invested in a YA series with such a huge cast, it was Harry Potter. I care what happens to John Smith and to Six and Marina and the others (yes, even Nine who somehow grew on me). The story doesn't waste time in picking up a plot thread that had been dangling since the end of THE POWER OF SIX.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Read September 14, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having read all of the series so far, they keep getting better and keep you on the edge of your seat. Written for teens, adults will enjoy too. No sex or bad language, just a really great plot and read. Even my husband enjoys the series. Both of us are retired.
Highly recommend for anyone of any age.

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible September 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This left you feeling like you just wasted your time. The first three books were really good but this one seems
To just hang in the air. It's almost like the writer just ran out of ideas and stopped the story in the middle.
Then, they have the lost files books that could easily implemented to this one but instead they try sell as a
Separate books. Too bad. I hope they write the next one better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Language January 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was so eager to read this book. as usual the story was full of action packed details. However, some of the words used were unexpected. I try to encourage my students to read and I encourage books that maintain a low level of curse words. I'm sorry to report that this book exceeds the limit I am willing to put on a shelf in my classroom. Otherwise a great story.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book started off very exciting in the usual way, then right at the climax it ended. I kept checking to make sure the book was really done. It was. It's as if they published a half written book. I guess they are trying to force you into buying the next one. Or maybe the publisher pressured the writer into having something written that they could pass off as a whole book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much filler August 29, 2013
This series overall is entertaining enough, an easy read that takes only few hours at most for each book. The first three books in the series, while cheesy at times, pack a decent story into an easy read, Fall of Five on the other hand reads with a lot of filler and fluff to bulk up the size of the book rather than fill in the story. The book over does the multiple perspectives, especially from Sam's POV, it just gets boring and bland. Most of the story from this book could have been easily fit into half of it without all the excess attempts at character development that end up not being explored further for the amount of time they put into it. As I said, just a lot of filler in this book.
