Book Review: The Rise of Nine - Pittacus Lore

The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies, #3)
Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others--including John.

But so are they.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York--but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.
But they'll have to fight us first.
 
4/5 stars (really liked it)
I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series, which will not be published until next year.  In this book we get point of views from John (Four), Six, Marina (Seven) & Ella (Ten).  The font was different but sometimes I thought I was reading one point of view but it was someone else.  There was a lot of action in this one.  A reunion I was happy about and a person was not found that I had hoped would be found.  All the members of the Garde are getting a handle of their Legacies.  Overall I loved seeing interactions between the Garde Members, especially John and Nine.  Nine is a guy you love to have hate.  Still not sure if I love him or hate him.
