The Power of Six

The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore Book Summary

The second book of the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series!

In the beginning, nine aliens left their home planet Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians. They scattered on Earth and went into hiding. They look like ordinary teenagers but have extraordinary powers. The Mogs have come for them. They killed Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. They tried to get John Smith, Number Four, in Ohio—but they failed.

Now John has joined forces with Number Six, and they are on the run. But they are not alone. Already John and Six have inspired Marina, Number Seven, who has been hiding in Spain. She’s been following the news of what’s happening, and she’s certain this is the sign she’s been waiting for. It’s time to come together.

Michael Bay, director of Transformers, raved: “Number Four is a hero for this generation.” This epic story is perfect for fans of action-packed science fiction like The Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancey, The Maze Runner series by James Dashner, and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.

The battle for Earth’s survival wages on. Don’t miss the rest of the series: #3: The Rise of Nine, #4: The Fall of Five, #5: The Revenge of Seven, #6: The Fate of Ten, and #7: United as One.

Don’t miss the first book in the brand-new I Am Number Four spin-off series: Generation One.

- WOW5 star

I thought this wasn’t gonna be as good as the first, but boy was I wrong! I loved this book so much, that I would give it ten stars if I could! But please not so much swearing, it’s the only iffy part. 👍 And don’t let the mogs win please. And kill off Sarah, that son of a gun. And the next movie to!

- Love This Series5 star

I originally watched the movie and loved it. However, the books are always better. :) So, I picked up the first book and read it in a day and was immediately hooked. This book, being the continuation, is so refreshing after several years. It wasn’t finished immediately after the movie dropped, so this series fell off my radar for a few years. Now that I have several to look forward to, I’m absolutely floored to get back into the series. And The Power of Six didn’t disappoint! On to the next one!

Just finished this book, and am downloading book 3 after writing this review. So many things changed in this book compared to how it was in book 1, I'm excited to see how this is going to end! I love the authors description and intensity. Cannot wait to read the next one!!

- Wow5 star

I was really excited to know they were working on a movie for the power of six until recently shelving the movie! I can't help but to complain about the crap that has been coming out lately when this book is action packed and imagining the fights scenes on the big screen! Whoa! Just the cave fight with Sam and freeing Nine and the fight at the lake would be amazing! Just waiting for the Rise of Nine!

- Great Follow up4 star

Great follow up and I can't wait till the next book.

- Not as good as first3 star

Id give "I am Number Four" a solid 5/5, the sequel doesn't live up to the first one. Will still finish series but hoping Power of Six is a fluke and rest are as good as I am Four. Overall the writing at the beginning of the book set a bad tone for the rest of the book. "blah blah" four says. "blah blah blah" six says. "blah blah blah blah" Sam says. Thankfully the whole book wasn't that way but bad writing at the start.

- Movie5 star

Sad to say, I think there's no movie sequel of I Am Number Four. :( but this book is awesome! Super dooper awesome. :)

I read the book in one night. By the last chapter I was cheering Marina on. Can't wait to find out what happens next.

- Great5 star

Good book. Spoiler alert: next book is called THE RISE OF NINE

- Pittacus Lore5 star

We are here.

- Amazing5 star

Best book I have ever read

- The Power of Six5 star

I just finished this book and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I just could not keep my eyes off of it! Of course, you had to have read I Am Number Four first to actually understand it....but was totally awesome and suspense filled. But...I am kinda upset that the last book ends on a cliff hanger. I really want there to be another!!! I would totally buy it. So.....ya you need to get this book.

- Better and better5 star

Sometimes the first book in a series is the bests and it is downhill from there. Not in this case. Book two would have kept me up all night but I wanted to savor it like a good meal and take it bite by bite, knowing my next 'meal' won't be here until August 2012! Got this for my 12 year old daughter but I enjoyed the non-stop adventure and characters too much. Highly recommend this for all ages.

- Great book!!!!5 star

This book is a lot better than the first. Can anyone tell me when the next one is coming out? I can't seem to find any info about it.

- Great Read!5 star

This was an exciting book. If you read the first one then this one you don't really need to read number 4 the lost files. Most of what is in there is in this book. It was hard to put down! I wish there was an excerpt from the next book or at least some information about when it will be out, can't wait for the one!

- If you did not read this book yet know this!5 star

If you are going to read this book, DO NOT read six's i am number four lost files. It will be boring reading her explaining it for a while if you already know what happen, and it ruins the whole number two situation. Because you know about her already so it's not VERY exciting (still exciting though XD) to read about her possible last days!

- Awesome5 star

One of the cases where the sequel isevery bit as thrilling as the original.

- Awesome!!!5 star

This book was amazing, great sequel to "I am number four." I am so excited for the next book. I wonder what it will be called and how many there are going to be!!!! Awesome book!!!!

- When does the next book come out?!?!5 star

I love Pittacus Lore's books!!! I can't wait for the next come to come out!!!

- A great read, very action packed.5 star

My 11 yo son and I really enjoyed reading this book together. It

- Wow5 star

This book was even better than the first one!

- Awesome5 star

This was one of the best books I ever read. It is action-packed with a great story line. Although I suggest reading the first one first.

- Fantastic!5 star

I was hooked from the first page. Great story and page turner. Kept me wondering what was next and most importantly kept my attention. Can't wait for the next one and hopefully more after that!

- The power of six4 star

I found it captivating but the lose of characters made it sad for me!

- Best series ever5 star

I love the Lorien legacies. Don't think since u watched the movie u can read this. Read book one first. Amazing.

- Tried putting it down5 star

Fast paced story-telling with a ton of action, suspense, and character development. Could picture every scene in my mind! Fans will be pleased!!!

I Am Number Four was better, but this book was still an awesome adventure!! Book three please!

- Number4!!!5 star

This book started slow, but towards the middle got to amazing that I couldn't stop reading. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!!

- LOVED IT5 star


- Decent4 star

It was a good book in my opinon but it depends on what you liked about the first book. If you like sarah she is in only one scence so it wont be a great book. If you are in it for the action it will be amazing. If you loked both like me it will be pretty good. Sevens point of view is very anoying though.

- Best yet5 star

Easier to read than the other reviews say. But it does get confusing when he switches scenes after every other page rather than every chapter like earlier in the book. I recommend it to all!

- Impressive.5 star

Don't let these spoilers keep you from reading this book. It gives a bit more info about the Lorien Garde and what is found inside each Chest, as well as some of their pasts, presents, and futures. The reading is captivating as each scenario unfolds. If you enjoyed the first, you will love the second and anticipate the third!

- The power of six5 star

Is amazing!!! I almost wish I had started reading them after all the books had already been released, that way I wouldn't have to wait for the next book(s)!!!!

- Wow5 star

I downloaded this book at 10 pm and finished it at 4 am. An absolutely fabulous series of books that only rates next to the Inheritance Cycle and Rick Riordan. If you liked the first then you'll love this one. This book makes me wish I only found the series once it was complete :)

- Great!!!5 star

Loved it!!! Can't wait for the next one!

- Awesome!5 star

The book is awesome! I read it in 2 days, an I really hope they make a movie out of this book, because if they do... It's gunna be epic!

- Compares to the first5 star

I read the first book in late 2010 and early 2011. It was instantly my absolute favorite book. My friends would tell me the Hunger Games trilogy was the best, but after reading the trilogy, even though they were good books, I Am Number Four beat the Hunger Games by a mile. I waited months for this to come out, and when it did, I read it in a few days, staying up late and reading for hours. Bring on the third book!

- Great book!5 star

This is a great book to continue the series! I can't wait for the next one!

- Amazing5 star

An amazing book and an amazing series. I can't wait for the next installment hope it will be soon. Should you need it this book and it's predecessor have anything and everything you want with a writing style that can only be described as amazing.

- Wow. Simply amazing.5 star

I can't wait for the next wait

- Love the book5 star

I read this book in 1 day like I am number four. This one is a great book.. Lots of surprises... And the only thing is I wish I didn't have to wait another year for the the book.

- Awesome!5 star

I loved this book! I read it in 2 days , it ties a lot of questions I had from I Am Number Four, loved it!!

- A bland, written for children waste of money2 star

The plot and wit of this written-for children ebook lacks any sense of gravity. There are much better books available that will keep your mind engaged.

- Great Book5 star

I couldn't wait for this book to come out and I read it in a day and a half. Just when you think somethings going to happen, theres a twist. There was too much changes in perspective so quickly it got a bit confusing. Overall great storyline and yet another great book by Pittacus Lore one of the elders

- Chimaera5 star

Ok let me get this out first, I know there will be many people who hate this book especially those who love Sarah and John together (which I do not like them together) but I for one loved every page of it. Every book I've read I could tell how the book would eventually turn out, not completely but I would mostly get what would happen before the story ended. This book had me gaping in shock for minutes at a time as event after event occurred. The author truly managed to surprise me time and time again through this book and left me wanting more. This was so captivating that I snuck away from class during the day at school just to read a few pages at a time. Just make sure you read the battle scenes slowly so you get a clearer idea of what is going on. I admit some parts were confusing but I think the author will make them clearer in the next book to. :) amazing read and I can't wait for the next

- Back to the start2 star

Ok, I downloaded this book with high hopes for it, the first one was good, if not amazing. But from the start of this one everything has gone downhill. I hate it when books are set in two different POV's from the excerpt I read I was -hoping- the author could pull it off. Sadly he couldn't, by the end he decided it would be a good idea to start major action sequences in both of them, and I got so confused I had to re-read some of them, and even then they didn't make perfect sense. A lopsided and short lasting love triangle was put into the mix, ya know, one of the ones that you know that one person doesn't -really- love the person they just kinda think they do? Ya, one of those. The twists in the plot were horrible, and by the end of the book I just wanted to be done with it. Not to mention every time a character uses the nickname "Morgs" for the Mogadorians I felt like I was reading a 2 year olds book. Fans of Sarah ( or who liked the first one because of the romance) will be bitterly disappointed and feel as If they have been slapped at the end of this. And to top it off, I feel like he copied the ending exactly from the first book with very little changes more "I know where the others are so now the bad guys better watch out". Can he redeem himself in the third book? Honestly I think even if he tried he couldn't recover from the mess this turned out to be. 341 pages to go back where we started.
