The Time Will Come #40

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.

This is a book that I've had sitting on the top of my to-read pile for ages, and I know I won't be able to read it for a while yet. I got an ARC hardcover copy of this about two months before it was published and I was determined that I was going to read it quickly- at least before the publication date. There is something really satisfying about owning a book months before anyone can get their hands on it! Unfortunately, *hanging head in shame* I STILL haven't read this.

The Power of Six is book 2 in the Lorien Legacies series, and the sequel to I Am Number Four.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.

I am determined that I am going to read this book... one day soon!


  1. These books sound so amazing, I've only watched the film 'I am number four' recently and now I can't wait to get my hands on the book. Glad to know you enjoyed it :)

  2. I borrowed the first book from my little brother, just haven't had a chance to read it yet! I probably should, since he's buying this soon, and I want to borrow it, too..! :)
