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.

This is a must-read for hard core sci-fi fans. It’s like Heroes, but with aliens! Teens using their super powers to protect earth from the evil alien horde. I can’t go into the details, since it’s the fourth book in the series, and I refuse to spoil this series by explaining where everything is at. Simply put, this is one of the most consistently stellar series I have ever encountered. I have never been disappointed with this series for even a second.

It started off a little slow. I had a hard time getting into the different POVs: Four, Marina and Sam. It was really confusing at times since all the authors did was switch up the font. You start off a chapter without really knowing whose mind you’re in. It was the only negative thing I have to say about the book.

Often when reading a series, I’ll get tired of it by book 4 (lets be honest… book 2), and while waiting for the next book, I’ll completely forget what happened. But in this case, I get antsy waiting for the next book! Not only that, but my memory seems to be on just the right page. I was worried I wouldn’t remember who the characters were, since their names are mostly numbers (Five, Six, Eight, Nine), but that wasn’t even a tiny problem. It was like meeting an old friend.
