Title: I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1)
Author: Pittacus Lore
Goodreads Summary: Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
Rating: 5+ Stars
Review: Wow. I have been meaning to read the Lorien Legacies series for quite a while now, almost a year in fact. I've been meaning to read them since I read Partials by Dan Wells and saw Pittacus Lore's starred review.
I have heard a lot about the series, but I never thought I am Number Four would be as good as it was. John's story is enthralling, and must be told. I definitely enjoyed reading, and can't wait to read The Power of Six. I am Number Four was nothing but stunning.
Lorien and John's world is richly imagined, my favorite kind of Dystopia. Pittacus Lore is an incredibly talented author.
