Book Review: The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

The Power of Six
Author:  Pittacus Lore
Publisher:  HarperCollins
Date Published:  August 23rd 2011

From Goodreads:

I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us. 

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together? They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed. I am Number Seven. One of six still alive. And I'm ready to fight.


I really really loved The Power of Six.  We find out about number seven, Marina.  The Power of Six changes points of views from Marina and John, number four.   Along for the ride are number Six and Sam.  

I thought it was great how Sam has a bigger role in The Power of Six.  We get a bigger picture of why he's a character, and how important his role is in the war with the Mogadorians.  The girl power in this sequel is freaking awesome.  I love kick ass female characters.  

I didn't like that in the beginning number four couldn't stop thinking about Sara, but that didn't last too long. I didn't like her in I am Number Four, so I was ecstatic that she wasn't really a factor in The Power of Six

It definitely ends in somewhat of a cliffhanger which totally sucks.  I can't wait to read the next book.
