    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....

    I think I liked "The Power of Six" better, but this was still an entertaining story. We received a little more insight into the characters' personalities and their respective legacies, in addition to meeting another gaurde member. The last half of the book was pretty action packed too.

    The love triangle/square that formed during the second book took a back seat in book three. I think that whole angle was a little unbelievable when you threw Sam in there. I'm not quite sure if the story line is dead or might revive itself later, but it didn't really come to a head. Certainly not in typical teenage girl fashion. Overall it was a very good story and I'm excited for the release of book four.

    Story

    I enjoyed the 1st Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (read by Jesse Bernstein). I also like the new Heroes of Olympus series, but I'm not sure I can stand to listen to them. This new reader is horrible. I can't stand the way he enunciates words. He sounds like a robot. In fact, he's so bad I'd probably rather have Siri, the iPhone assistant read this book. I hope they get a clue and bring back Jesse.
