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!

Honestly could not stop listening....finished in 1 day. My 12 and 10 year olds did not put it down.
Lots of action. Good pace, narrators are very good. The storyline moves along as expected in too many places. Even with the plot twists easy to see in advance, the way the story flows is well done. The author has a deft touch. Looking forward to listening to the rest of the series!
once I started I could not stop, I could not wait to get the next book! I look extra forward to getting up early to drive to work so that I can tune in.
The story line leaves me on the edge of my seat! The graphic details of each battle help me envision a movie in my mind. The narrators do an awesome job of adjusting their voices to fit each character. It's just great writing and great acting!
Superheroes. Aliens. Teamwork. Coming of Age. Action. Page Turner.
If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, Ender’s Game or are a fan of super heroes, I highly recommend this series. If you take interest in dystopian worlds, aliens, or YA novels, you should give this series a chance.
the book is pretty good. I like the legacies and how they work. I don't like certain things about relationships but other than that well worth a read. I even like Sam a lot but the voice kind of sucks. lol
Took a little getting used to the narrators voices but the story was good enough that I stuck with it and ultimately enjoyed it quite a bit.
Besides the obvious overtones of teen angst commonly found in the genre and the serious tie ins with commonly found conspiracy theories floating thru the web and modern television(I.e. Ancient aliens) we find a small gem that is willing to exploit both the paranoid and the inner teen loner at the same time. All the while the subpar performance of Neil Kaplan is easily overlooked by the excellent performance by Marisol Ramirez in this entrapping narrative that could of easily have passed for the unaired episodes of "Roswell" or a spin off of the"Starwars" franchise both notable series in the scifi universe, would of needed to mate unprotected to create this stand alone work of what the authors attempted to deliver as nonfiction with-in the first few minutes. Good luck and enjoy I hope my comparisons haven't scared u off :)
