Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Four, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, and Ten—these aren’t the winning lottery numbers but rather the known surviving members of an alien race who continue to battle the dastardly Mogadorians in the series that began with I Am Number Four (2010). The sequel, The Power of Six (2011), divided itself into two first-person POVs, and this one continues the trend by chopping the perspective into thirds, resulting in ever more opportunities to cinematically cross-cut between the snowballing action, whether the characters are together or continents apart. This is also the book’s weakness, as Lore haphazardly inserts surprise attacks by the Mogs whenever the story needs a kick or a cliff-hanger. Thankfully, two characters emerge as especially interesting: Nine, the arrogant but capable rich kid traveling alongside stalwart Four; and Eight, who is tracked down in India, where locals believe him to be a reincarnated Vishnu. Increasingly, the teens’ exhausting amount of superpowers and weapons drains tension from their battles with the comparatively lackluster Mogs, but the pages do turn. And lest you think this is a trilogy, buck up—there’s more on the way. Grades 8-11. --Daniel Kraus

Review

PRAISE FOR THE I AM NUMBER FOUR SERIES:“Number Four is a hero for this generation.” (Michael Bay, director of Transformers)

“A breathless page-turner of a sci-fi novel that will have readers rooting for the teen alien who must save himself, his human friends, and the planet. So, gear-up sci-fi fans, the battle for Earth is on and there’s a new kid in town!” (Amazon.com, Best Book of the Month Review)

“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)

“This is a can’t-put-it-down book.” (Justine Magazine)

“The action is taut, the characters are fascinating, and the fact that the teens are slowly finding one another and learning about Lorien secrets is sure to yield an impressive all-out battle down the road. This series continues to head in interesting directions.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Lore picks up and expands on a strong premise that originated in the first novel. An intriguing potential romantic triangle brewing between John, Six, and Sam adds layers as they search for answers.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
