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

My Thoughts:

I do have to say that I liked The Power of Six a lot better than I liked I Am Number Four. There’s a lot of action and a lot of “oh no he didn’t” moves in this book. The way it’s written is kind of weird but cool. It starts with number 7 and then it’s like she’s stuck in number 4’s head. It’s kind of cool but annoying at times because sometimes it’s so confusing as to whom it speaking. There are a couple of major twist that happen in the book and I wasn’t too completely shocked because I kind of saw them coming but still it kind of shocked me a little. Anyway it’s a good read. Def better than I Am Number Four. Can’t wait for the next one! I give this one 3.5 out of 5 paws.
