The Lorien Legacies part 4: The Rise of Nine

July 31, 2012

The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore. Pub. Penguin Books, 2012.

I have just cottoned on to this series of science fiction/fantasy novels and the reason I read this one is because the action is amazing.

The planet of Lorien has been attacked by alien creatures called Mogadorians led by the powerful and ruthless Setrakus Ra. Ten lorians escaped in two ships to Earth and are hiding out. Three Loriens No1, No2 and No3 were killed by the Mogadorians and the other six are scattered about Earth learning to develop their Legacies or special powers. One is unknown.

They are all teenagers and this book is about the rise of No9. The only way the Loriens can overcome the powerful Setrakus Ra is being together and this novel brings them together for a final onslaught.

Narrated in two strands one by No5 in action in India trying to locate No8, the other in USA narrated by No4 with the rising No9.

Amazing action as the Loriens use their various Legacies like telekinesis to fight off the Mogdorians.

This is for dedicated sci/fi readers in their teens or young adult. This novel helps to fill in the gaps as to what has happened but the best thing to do is to start with the whole series. Look it up at http://www.lorienlegacies.co.uk
