The Rise of Nine

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....

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.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.

Number Two in England.

And Number Three in Kenya.

They caught me in New York - but I escaped.

I am Number Six.

They want to finish what they started.

But they'll have to fight us first.

    "Entertaining Story"

    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.

    "Huge disappointment"

    I liked first two parts and I was eagerly waiting for this one. This series held such a promise and this guy managed to mess it up. book was fine until about last third where writer got lost in the story. The end..... I'm trying to think of the word that would describe it and I'm coming out blank. It's aweful. Ruined the whole thing even if you forget about messed up story.

    "Good"

    I like the story but I wish there wasn't so much cussing. I can't listen to it around my kids and I think it was written for kids.

    "Let the guy do the voices."

    Male narrator is great at different voices. Female not. You can't tell who is talking. Should have let the guy do the whole story like the first book.

    "Read"

    This book is unpredictable and exciting. Although some characters are annoying and utterly useless like Sarah Heart.

    "Good story."

    Get rid of the over emotional narrators. The entire series would have been so much better.

    "STICK WITH IT!"
    What other book might you compare The Rise of Nine to and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    JOHN SMITH.


    Any additional comments?

    Superheroes. Aliens. Teamwork. Coming of Age. Action. Page Turner.

    "ending"

    I didn't like the performance at the end. it was very distorted and hard to understand. I understand the theatrics of it but it seemed unnecessary.
