I’m writing this review because I finished reading the 3rd book of the Lorien Legacies series, and I thought it would be best to give a review on the 1st book first.

My review for I am Number Four:
I give I am Number Four 3.5 stars. The way it’s written is the greatest, but it’s better than a lot of other books I have read. The setting is in the 21st century and mostly in Paradise, Ohio. There was a ship that came to America from Lorien that had 9 young Lorien children and 9 Cepans. Each child has a Cepan, and these children were bestowed with special powers, or Legacies, from the Lorien Elders that they’ll develop as they age and use to save Lorien. Each child and his or her Cepan split up for safety, but will eventually reunite with each other. The Mogadorians are a separate alien species who took control and seek to get rid of the 9 gifted young Lorien citizens. But there’s a catch! Before the Lorien children left, the Elders made it so that they each had a number and must be killed in the order of their number given. The main character’s name is a 15 year old teenager named Four and he’s from the planet Lorien. He knows that 1 and 2 are dead because of the circles marked and pained that occurred right after their deaths. He’s having a nice time when he gets a pain that happens for the 3rd time and it’s leaving a 3rd circle. It means that number Three is dead and he is next that the Mogoadorians will try to kill so he has to be careful. His life situation causes him to always be on the move and changing his name. What if wants to stay and settle in one area for an extended time? Can he survive if the Mogadorians find him? What legacies will he have and will he be able to control them?
