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!

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!
I saw I am Number Four and I couldn't wait to get the books number two didn't disappoint. I'm going to get number 3 right now. Here I come book number 3 rise of nine.
I understand this is a novel for teens but the idiocy of the decision making by the characters makes everything so predictable.
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
Yes The series by piticus lore is a good series and well worth recommending to a friend.
Alien teenagers with powers... what more do you want?
Software engineer and Syfy author (attempting).
The story itself was great despite the narration. I would love to see this made to a movie to follow up the original movie.
I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.
The whole series was really great.I recommend every book.
I would not compare this book to any of the book I listen to.
I guess I would say the whole thing,
I'll listen to all these books back to back-to-back divide the whole series.
I would say listen to all of them they're really good!
Fear is the mind Killer, so Face Your Fear
There was not a part I loved, but I did enjoy the constantly engaging story
9 was my favorite character. He was a little bit a fun chaotic character.
IT was read very well and he transitioned between characters seamlessly.
Aliens save earth
The story is decent but the Narrirator makes me want to put sharp objects in my ears. His rendition of the main character is adequate but the supporting characters are absolutely destructive to the whole ambiance that the author wants to portray. Is it just me or does anyone else hear PeeWee Herman? The females should be teens but I hear 9 year olds. What was the production company thinking in casting this Narrirator? Too bad for the story has potential. I think I will just buy the printed copies of this series unless they change to a better Narrirator.
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.
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.
Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer.
Number 3 out of my top four. One being, "Pride & Prejudice", two being "I am Number 4", three, "The Power of Six" & four "The Rise of Nine".
Book one. Same author & narrator.
