If You Like Pittacus Lore Books, You’ll Love…

I Am Number Four is the first book in the Lorien Legacy series. This book tells the story of John Smith. A seemingly ordinary teenager who is trying to keep a low profile. This is because he’s not an oridinary teenager, but actually an alien from the Lorien race. There were nine children sent to Earth to develop their Lorien Legacies, powers that help them, and the first three are dead. John is the fourth and he’s in danger.

The next book in the series is The Power of Six. This one sees John teaming up with the other Lorien children as the Mogs continue to hunt them on Earth. This book has far more action than the first and is more of a page turner. The relationship between Maria and her handler is very unique and shows that the Loriens don’t all have the same experience on Earth. A great read if you enjoyed the first one and want to continue the series.
