Publisher's Summary

I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us - if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another...but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio - and failed.

I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.

And I'm ready to fight.

Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

    "Where is the plot?"

    Starting to wonder about the painfully clumsy detailed battle moves and erratic emotions of the characters. The story feels stretched and I'm worrying about having preordered the whole series-it's playing out in my head just like a PlayStation game.
    So much potential for a richer story but I think it's too drawn out.
    Starting to understand why there's only one film......

    Story
    "Speeds Up! ::SPOILERS::"
    What did you love best about The Power of Six?

    The ending was full of action!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ::SPOILER:: I liked 9.


    What about Neil Kaplan and Marisol Ramirez ’s performance did you like?

    Marisol's voice was a nice break from Neil's. However I'm beginning to realize that it's not so much his total narration I dislike but his "feminine" voices that I do not like. It comes out more mocking than I think he realizes....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ""SPOILER:: Adelina's death. Even though you know it's inevitable... And 10's near death. That scared me!


    Any additional comments?

    The characters freeze up waaaay too much to be heroes! Heroics are instinctive...this is probably why I like 9 and 6 so much. You can feign it off as their training was better but like I said, these powers they were given are old powers and should be somewhat instinctive. They should be trying to get them under control...not make them work.

    Story
    "Great 2nd Book"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As with the first book, Sam is my favorite character. He is just so vulnerable and sweet. I'd like to think he and I would be friends.


    Which character – as performed by Neil Kaplan and Marisol Ramirez – was your favorite?

    I do not have a favorite. I think both voices were done well. When they did each other's voices, it always through me off a bit, but I liked it because I could imagine young adults talking about one another and changing their voice to mimic one another. It was nice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, as with the other books in the series, I could not wait to get to the end. Still, the end just leaves the reader/listener wanting more since it is only the second book in the series.

    "Great second book! Can't wait for book 3"

    So far so good. I am really liking this series! It seems to keep me on my toes with the way the author swapping the characters point of view. Keep'em coming!

    "Thinking with your genitals"

    I understand this is a novel for teens but the idiocy of the decision making by the characters makes everything so predictable.

    "Great Story!"

    The story itself was great despite the narration. I would love to see this made to a movie to follow up the original movie.
