The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore!

I really enjoyed this for it's action and adventure, but also it's heart. This is the second book in a series, and adds new characters, and a whole new dimension to the story. 
I thought this book was so much better than book I Am Number Four. I loved the dual narrative as the story switches between John (Number Four) in America, and Marina (Number Seven) hiding out in Spain. Their lives are so different, and this made the story seem so multi-layered. They are all discovering their powers and starting to talk about fighting back, and this gives it a great atmosphere of tension and building drama. 
Intense, fast-paced and exciting. A great story. 

Honourable mentions also go to Hallowed and Goddess Interrupted. Both also great books.

I've been poorly on and off throughout February and March, so I haven't written many reviews lately- but that is going to change next month as I try to catch up- promise! I've read so many fantastic books lately and I really want to talk about them, and get all these half-written reviews done and up on the blog. April will be a better month!


  1. Yes, definitely thinking of picking up The Power of Six now whereas I wasn't fussed before your review! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I still need to read this one! I really enjoyed I Am Number Four, but I'm so glad to see that this one is even better! It's definitely moving up my TBR list.

  3. I really liked I Am Number Four, too, and I raelly need to get around to reading this one...if only for Bernie Kosar!
