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!

Hate the characrers decisions

I struggled to finish this half way through the book I hated 2 of the main characters and was majorly annoyed by a third. I debated just turning it off a few times

A good read...short-review

I really enjoyed the movie and since there is not going to be a sequel, I decided to catch-up by reading the series. The Power of Six did not disappoint and the story moved easily from I Am Number Four.
-Performance rating is for audible. I would purchase the book because the narrator's voices are so nerve wracking. Each individual attempting to create a character was not seamless and left me baffled as to who the heck was speaking next -terrible. Let me repeat that...terrible!!!

great series

the book is pretty good. I like the legacies and how they work. I don't like certain things about relationships but other than that well worth a read. I even like Sam a lot but the voice kind of sucks. lol

Great story and the narrators voices grew on me.

Took a little getting used to the narrators voices but the story was good enough that I stuck with it and ultimately enjoyed it quite a bit.

Great for a lazy weekend morning

Besides the obvious overtones of teen angst commonly found in the genre and the serious tie ins with commonly found conspiracy theories floating thru the web and modern television(I.e. Ancient aliens) we find a small gem that is willing to exploit both the paranoid and the inner teen loner at the same time. All the while the subpar performance of Neil Kaplan is easily overlooked by the excellent performance by Marisol Ramirez in this entrapping narrative that could of easily have passed for the unaired episodes of "Roswell" or a spin off of the"Starwars" franchise both notable series in the scifi universe, would of needed to mate unprotected to create this stand alone work of what the authors attempted to deliver as nonfiction with-in the first few minutes. Good luck and enjoy I hope my comparisons haven't scared u off :)

The dialogue in spots is pretty rough

The story is good but bogs it self down with so many unanswered questions that it becomes kind of annoying. The dialogue between romantic character is down right horrible.

Moves along well

What made the experience of listening to The Power of Six the most enjoyable?

I like the different gifts that are being introduced. I hope the story returnes to Sam soon.

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

No laughing but I am one of those emotional readers tears come to my eyes
