Book Review of The Power of Six.I enjoyed The Power of Six tremendously. The main reason was because The Power of Six is fun. These kids have the coolest superpowers and it helps that they’re on a quest to save the world as they figure out how to use them.
The Power of Six is told from 2 viewpoints, Numbers Four and Seven. And this is what makes the story work. Number Four who’s recently gained his Legacies and after the loss of his Cepan finally realizes the importance of readying himself to fight, is searching with Six for the rest of the Loriens. And Number Seven who has to do it on her own after her Cepan abandons their mission. Understanding their motives and situation really had me rooting for them.
The other part I enjoyed was how both sides was intent on 1 thing. Getting together with the rest of the Lorien survivors in order to gain the strength to go against the Mogadorians. At the end of the book when they’ve formed into 2 groups with only 2 of their numbers whereabouts and identities unknown, I was disappointed not to be able to read The Rise of Nine immediately.
The only part of the book which irritated me is Four’s infatuation with Sarah. On this point, I can’t help agreeing with Six’s viewpoints regarding Loriens and love.
Still, I’ve added The Rise of Nine to my wish list and am looking forward to picking up the next book.
My conclusions :
- Would I re-read the book ? Definitely.
- Would I want to read the next book in the series ? Most assuredly.
- Would I want to own my personal copy if I didn’t already own it ? Yes, I do.
- Who would I recommend this too? Sci-fi adventure fans.
- For those looking to read the book, would I recommend buying or borrowing the book? Buy it.
