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!

    I listen to books while running and walking my dog so on average about an hour day and like books that have a good pace to them.

    "Flat and Whiny"

    This being the second book in the series i expected a smooth transition from the first but was thrown off by the female narrator that opened this installment. This jarring start was quickly forgotten as the action picked up. the author tried to build suspense by switching between story lines and the narrators did a good job with their respective parts. However, i felt that some of the portrayals were a little flat as characters faced mortal danger or revealed haunted and traumatic pasts. Finally, i am concerned that as these books continue the main character #4 seems to be increasingly whiny and at times during this book i found myself hoping that he would suffer a horrible fate at the hands of his enemies. I have moved on to the third book and am hoping for better but i am afraid that this series has already peaked.

    "Good read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Power of Six to be better than the print version?

    Yes, but I haven't even looked at the print version. Listening just saves me time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I saw the movie, "I Am Number Four" and wanted to know what happened next. This book was a good continuation of the story, but it doesn't end at the end of this book either.


    What does Neil Kaplan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He adds some pretty good character voices and dramatic effects.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No

    "Better narrator would have helped a lot"

    For a YA book it's probably not bad .. except that the male narrator, supposedly a 16 year old boy and other youths of about the same age, sounded like a middle aged smoker and it was hard to develop any empathy for him or the characters he portrayed. Sure I might be interested in knowing what happens next .. but not enough to endure his narration. I hope I got this on sale as it wasn't worth much.

    "What a pleasant surprise"

    This book was full of action and intrigue. I cared about the characters and wanted them to succeed. I felt like I could see the action happening - this could make such a thrilling action packed movie.

    "Good Book"

    Book one and two are very enjoyable and hold your attention from beginning to end. Book 3 was killed by the extra narrators and a slower story. Get the first 2 and think about the 3rd.

    "Very disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or Neil Kaplan?

    No


    What could Pittacus Lore have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The author needs to spend some time with teenagers and learn that they do not talk like idiots. John Smith was likeable and desirable because he was devoted to one woman for his life. How disappointed I was to find that this loyalty did not even last weeks. He is not likeable at all in this book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Needed a better dialogue.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story line is exciting with alot of action.
