Editorial Reviews

Review

“Each entry in this volume is dark, surprising, and poignant. Lore’s stark style fits perfectly with the plot of each piece, and readers will be left wanting more. This bold addition to the series will be popular with science fiction readers and fans of the original novel and film.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

This is the continuing story of the Lorien Legacies series. It begins where " The Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies" left off. Most likely, you're not reading this review if you haven't read all of the other books in the series, so from this point forward, I don't feel bad about giving any spoilers away.

"The Fallen Legacies" left off with Mogadorian Adamus attempting to save Number Three, becoming a traitor to his people, and most of all, his father, General of the Mogadorian Army. Adam has been recovering in an aid camp in Kenya, still having conversations with One in his head. When One begins to disappear for longer periods of time, Adam becomes concerned about her disappearances, only to find out that the mental link between the two of them is slowly fading. In an effort to keep them connected, Adam makes his way back to his former home in the United States.

When he arrives at Ashwood Estates in Virginia, he is greeted happily by his mother, but the rest of the family is not as eager to welcome him back, knowing he was a traitor to his people. Adam convinces his father that killing him would not be of benefit, as he was the one to track the Garde well before the rest of the Mogadorians, therefore the General allows him to join the Media Surveillance team to prove himself loyal to the cause.

Adam makes a point to interact with the new head doctor, Dr. Zako. Through a simple line of questioning, Adam finds out that Dr. Zako has found new ways to use the technology that was used on Adam to transfer One into his mind. Adam decides to let his father know that he wants nothing to do with this project, thus making the General's want for his son's experimentation.

In the not so distant past I worked at a few book stores. A problem I ran into frequently was finding books for teen boys. The YA market is flooded with books meant solely for girls. Boys have always been a harder sell when it comes to reading and publishers haven't made it an easier job, especially when they have flooded the teen market with paranormal romance.

So recommendations for teen boys often meant I would recommend The Hunger Games. Unfortunately many guys aren't too keen on reading a book in which the main character is a girl, no matter how good the story is. So after going through the other 5 or 6 good teen guy books I could think of I would often recommend a book in the general fiction and literature section, but parents often fear that their children will encounter questionable subject matter. Which they may, but they should also remember many of the books their children read in school are found in the fiction and literature not the teen section.

I found "I am Number Four" to be a great action adventure, that followed the traditional hero archetype. The main character, number Four or John Smith, is as relatable as a alien teenager on the run can be. The surrounding cast of characters rounds out this alien boys average existence, Henri, his alien guardian/father figure, Sam, his nerdy best friend, Sarah, his crush, and Mark, a bully and Sarah's ex. The story is a super power driven action packed adventure, filled with all the tender feelings and angst that a every teenager has.

It was a quick read. I got through it in about a day and a half. I would recommend this book for anyone over the age of 13.Read more ›

This is a continuation of the Adamus series, in which one of the Mogadorian’s, a true born son of a General, has turned against the cause, joining the Loric. Adam’s father, revolted by his son’s cowardice, uses him in an experiment in the previous book, and this results in him getting Number 1’s memory and brain patterns inserted into his brain. As such, he can see, hear and talk to Number 1. He soon sympathises with her, and becomes friends with her, and becomes horrified by his own people.
With Number 1’s help, he tries to save Number 2 and 3, but fails, and in process, is revealed and nearly killed. The story goes on from there with Adamus in hiding, trying to recover, and with Number 1 in his head, trying to push him to change and join the Garde.
Without giving too much away, things change in the story, resulting in a fairly interesting ending to this particular lost file. The outcome of this particular book is really awesome as far as the overall story line for the series.
As such, if you are a fan of the series, it's worth reading this particular ‘Lost File’.
This story was much better than the original story about Adam.

Love all these books! For a while when I first discovered the I Am Number Four series, and especially the Lost Files set, i read them so quickly i cannot give a very specific review of each one... but I do know I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about important characters in the series .. this one and all the others were hard to put down each night when I'd read.. even when i was soooo tired I should just stop and sleep. :D

I am reluctant to read the last books in this series, because I don't want it to be over! Lately I have a hard time finding a book/series I can really get into.
