United as One Review

449 pages

The Mogadorians have invaded Earth. Their warships loom over our most populated cities, and no country will risk taking them head on. The Garde are all that stand in the way, but they’ll need an army of their own to win this fight.
They’ve teamed up with the US military, but it might not be enough. The Garde need reinforcements, and they’ve found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith’s best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don’t their enemies will use these gifted teens for their own sinister plan.
But after all the Mogadorians have taken from John—his home, his family, his friends, and the person he loves most—he might not want to put any more lives in danger. He’s got nothing left to lose, and he’s just discovered he has been given an incredible new Legacy. Now he can turn himself into the ultimate weapon. So will he risk his life to save the world, or will he realize that power in numbers will save us all?

Anytime I wonder what else the Pittacus Lore series has to offer I am shown that there is always so much more! As the conclusion to the story of the Garde vs the Mogadorians, it is both satisfying and complete. John has been through so much pain and has grown as a leader of the Garde. While a lot of his personal struggle has been hard for him to get through, it is interesting to see the strength of character that forms from his tragedies. The remaining members of the Garde are all scattered but they eventually make their way back together to face the Mogadorians one last time. Humans developing legacies is also a fascinating addition and it is interesting to see the role they play in the battle against the Mogadorians. Along the way there is plenty of action and heart-stopping moments which culminate into an epic final battle that you won't forget. If you love epic science-fiction novels then this series is for you. Make sure to pick up the first 6 books before diving into this one!
