On My Wishlist

Do you have any books that you desperately want but haven't bought yet? The books can be old, new or forthcoming.

The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies)

From Amazon :
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.

  2. While I enjoyed Number Four, I wasn't desperate for a sequel - still it does sound different and I'll be curious to see what the rest of them are like!

    Thanks. Can't wait to have all my questions answered :-)

    @Amy
    It started out a bit slow but the ending was pretty exciting. A good start to a series with plenty to build on ... what I really liked was the movie-like feel of the story.

    After reading the book, I though I'd enjoy watching the movie :-)
