Publisher's Summary

The first book in a pulse-pounding new series that's set in the world of the New York Times best-selling I Am Number Four series. The war may be over - but for the next generation, the battle has just begun!

It has been over a year since the invasion of Earth was thwarted in Pittacus Lore's United as One. But in order to win, our alien allies known as the Garde unleashed their Loric energy that spread throughout the globe. Now human teenagers have begun to develop incredible powers of their own, known as Legacies.

To help these incredible and potentially dangerous individuals - and put the world at ease - the Garde have created an academy where they can train this new generation to control their powers and hopefully one day help mankind. But not everyone thinks that's the best use of their talents. And the teens may need to use their Legacies sooner than they ever imagined.

Perfect for fans of Marvel's X-Men and Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave, this epic new series follows a diverse cast of teens as they struggle to hone their abilities and decide what, if anything, they should do with them. This is a spin-off of the best-selling I Am Number Four series, and those familiar with the original books and newcomers alike will devour this fast-paced, action-packed sci-fi adventure.

    "Super impressed"

    When I read the summary of this book I wasn't sure it would be worth getting in to; however, I am so glad I gave it a shot. The characters are easy to follow and interesting. Don't worry, not all the characters are new, there are some old friends in here too.

    "Captivating"

    This was so good. Captivating plot line! The narrator captures the characters voices and personalities so well. I couldn't stop listening to it. I finished it in a week. It was amazing. Highly recommend

    "So So good.....The Writing man! The writting!"
    Where does Generation One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there with say Rise of nine and Fate of ten. It's very different, hard to compare really.


    What other book might you compare Generation One to and why?

    Generation One vs Power of Six


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That would be a spoiler alert.


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

    Both in parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Just an incredibly written book and start to the new book series.....I really loved it.

    The Six......Ran, Nigel, Caleb, Isabella, Taylor, and Cupano.......The story telling....protaganist vs Antagonist. The revelations: How would you respond if a kid of yours got Legacies? What would you do? How would you feel? Very real world feel to this. Really sucked you into their lives, there backstories. Highly recommend if your a fan of the series.

    "A solid re-entry"

    At first I found it annoying how much the narration jumped from one point of view to the next so fast. one minute we're seeing the world from Nigel's point of view, and the next we were seeing it from Taylor's. slowly, though, I found it nice, because I liked all of the characters and wanted to learn more about them. the narrator was very good, giving each character a voice and giving them appropriate accents. looking forward to the next book!

    "Disappointed"

    I liked the original series. It seemed to be a good young adult group of books. This one had such terrible language I couldn't enjoy it. It added nothing to the book and took away from my ability to enjoy it. Not a book I'd let the teens in my house listen to.

    "Loved this side of the story"

    I loved reading this side of the story. I was worried we would get a whole new cast of characters but there are a lot of characters back from the original series so it almost feels like a sequel to those. Plot lines are a little predictable but it makes for a nice read. The narrator was great, tho his impression of Kopono (a tall, muscular, Human Garde from Nigeria) is a little 'cartoony' and goofy and comes off Indian. It doesn't seem to match his description. This narrator does, however do a better job at Nine than the previous one. Overall great story! Can't wait for more.

    "I love this series"

    Every summer I can't wait for the next lore book to come out, I have been listening to them since the beginning. It's a perfect meld of superheroes and a story of teenagers coming into their adulthood I'm looking forward to the next one.
