Book Review: I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: The Legacies - Pittacus Lore

The Legacies (Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files, #1-3)
You know we're out there, living among you.

You know we're waiting for our day to come.

You have seen the power of our legacies.

You know this is why they hunt us.

You may think you know our stories.

You are wrong.

We each have our own story.

We know the time has come to share them with you.

Our legacies are your only hope.

Contains:
Six's Legacy
Nine's Legacy
The Fallen Legacies

4/5 stars (really liked it)
In Six's story we get to see a younger Six that is much more vulnerable and not as tough as the Six we have come to know.  We see her life with her Cepan Katarina.  We see how they were captured and how Katarina died.  Reading her story made me understand why she is the way she is after all she went through.
In Nine's story we also see a younger version of him and his Cepan Sandor.  Nine trains non-stop and lives in the house we saw in The Rise of Nine.  We see how his capture and Sandor's capture/death occurs.  Also how his Legacies developed.  The end of his story is where he meets John (Four).
The Fallen Legacies story is a bit different because it is the point of view of a young Mogodorian named Adamus.  His story begins when he witnesses the death of One and how her death changes his way of thinking. We next see how the capture and death of Two her Cepan occurs.  Finally the capture and death of Three and his Cepan.  It was nice to see the first three Garde's story even though they were told through Adam's point of view.  Also I am wondering now if we will see Adam in any books to come.
