Publisher's Summary

This sequel to Pittacus Lore’s Generation One is the second book in an epic new series set in the world of the number one New York Times best-selling I Am Number Four series.

Newcomers as well as fans of the original series will devour this fast-paced, action-packed sci-fi adventure that’s perfect for fans of Marvel’s X-Men, Alexandra Bracken’s Darkest Minds trilogy, and Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.

The Human Garde Academy was created in the aftermath of an alien invasion of Earth. It was meant to provide a safe haven for teens across the globe who were suddenly developing incredible powers known as Legacies.

Taylor Cook was one of the newest students and had no idea if she’d ever fit in. But when she was mysteriously abducted, her friends broke every rule in the book to save her. In the process, they uncovered a secret organization that was not only behind Taylor’s kidnapping but also the disappearance of numerous teens with abilities. An organization that has dark roots in the Loric’s past, untold resources, and potentially even a mole at their own school.

Now, these friends, who have become known to other students as the "Fugitive Six" must work together to bring this mysterious group to an end before they can hurt anyone else.

Good and getting better

It's official, if you enjoyed the original series, you will love this iteration. Book #2 is actually better than the first with more action, intrigue, and suspense. It's a shame these never caught on as movies.

Pretty good, but.....

Ok, so I'm very picky, but really, isn't it the editor's job to pick up on discrepancies? Why did Nigel's last name change from Rally to Barnaby? And in the first book Robea was the sheik's niece, not his daughter....just saying...

Other than that, I'm really liking this new series, except for the long wait between books. And the 100 page novellas in between need to be on audible, like they were in the original series.

Please pardon any spelling mistakes...because I listen to the books, I don't know the correct spelling of some of the characters' names.

Always enjoyable.

Great book. Continues the excellent Lorien storyline. Good Narrator. Would have loved to hear from more past characters. Looking forward to the next one.

As good as United As One

Excellent storyline - way better than the previous generation one. I felt sorry for all the characters at the end

Okay but not great.

I honestly am only reading this series because I loved the original series so much. While this book is better than Generation One, it’s no anywhere near as good as the originals.

Good addition to the storylime

Feels a bit short, but over all enjoyable. I have followed the books since I am number Four, and this book was entertaining and does add to the overall storyline. Great cliffhanger, but I really wish there was more to the book. I flew through listening to this One, and now it's a waiting game for the next. One hang-up I do have is Number 5 and Caleb are both getting the short stick. I wish they'd be cut some slack at some point, but we will see where the story goes.

Another great book in a fantastic series

This is another great and very strong book in what has become my favorite literary series. I do like some of the nuances that have changed, for example Nine's much more mature voice from a narration perspective versus his old voice from the first generation books where he was meant to sound young and almost juvenile. One question that I was left with after the last book was who could possibly stop Einar's ability? This book answers that question in is somewhat surprising and sensible twist, but I do have to say that one of the best twists in this entire series happens in chapter 21 which impressed me a lot. I very very slightly feel that something may be lacking in the plot, but overall this book like all previous books in the series had me captivated and always wanting to listen. To this day I still wish that the remaining books after the first were made into movies, but I guess one can only dream! Looking forward to the next book.

Going down hill

Avid lover of both series, but the story line is too basic. Author needs to push out follow up books quicker or give more substance in the dialog.

Not sure if I will continue this series as it seems the author is more interested in selling books than building up the fantastic world he created.

Feeling Sad...
