Title: The Fall of Five
Author: Pittacus Lore
Synopsis (via Goodreads): The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians? John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win. But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they’re hiding out in Nine’s Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move. The six of them are powerful, but they’re not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More importantly, they’ll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors. And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it’s too late. The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war. Lorien will rise again.
My Thoughts: I really need to catch up on this series. I've read I Am Number Four twice now I believe, but I have yet to read The Power of Six and The Rise of Nine. I enjoyed the first book in the series and am sure I will enjoy the others. Hopefully, like the first book, the other three will have a movie as well. Maybe even with the same actors throughout? I mean, a girl can dream, can't she?
What are you waiting on this week?
