The Power of Six Review

352 pages
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.

Another fast paced novel in the series, The Power of Six delivers action, adventure, and satisfies the curiosity about the other Numbers. I loved being able to see through the eyes of the other numbers and find out what was going on with them. I thought it was interesting how everyone's life on earth progressed differently. There were a lot of surprise twists and romances in this novel. John ends up in an interesting love dilemma that I can't wait to explore in the next book. Number Seven is an interesting character because she hasn't been on the run like the others, instead being forced to live in obscurity by her Cepan, who seems to have given up. Regardless of that, Number Seven still searches for news of the others and plans to find them. John, Sam and Number Six are not only on the run from the Mogadorians but also from the police as well. This makes for an extremely adventurous and action-filled storyline that captivated me from the start. I definitely recommend this book especially to those who have read the first book in the series.
