Publisher's Summary

The seventh and final book in the number-one New York Times best-selling I Am Number Four series! With United as One, this action-packed series comes to a surprising, breathtaking, and utterly satisfying conclusion.

The Garde didn't start this war, but they'll do whatever it takes to end it once and for all....

The Mogadorians have invaded Earth. Their warships loom over our most populated cities, and no country will risk taking them head-on. The Garde are all that stand in the way, but they'll need an army of their own to win this fight.

They've teamed up with the US military, but it might not be enough. The Garde need reinforcements, and they've found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith's best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don't their enemies will use these gifted teens for their own sinister plan.

But after all the Mogadorians have taken from John - his home, his family, his friends, and the person he loves most - he might not want to put any more lives in danger. He's got nothing left to lose, and he's just discovered he has been given an incredible new Legacy. Now he can turn himself into the ultimate weapon. So will he risk his life to save the world, or will he realize that power in numbers will save us all?

So much promise!

For an entire series i was along for the ride. Epic battles book after book with Twists and turns. Such a great series. then came the final book. i listened and was sad you only got two voices, only two narrators, only two minds. For a book that called itself united as one I was sorely disappointed that it ended so haphazardly and everyone left went off on their own. The unity and family was missing in this book. They forgot what had made the other books great and almost ruined everything by turning it into a revenge and violence novel instead of being multi voiced and character driven. So sad, too bad, oh well. so unsatisfying. Now I have to find some fanfic writer who wrote a better ending to such an awesome series.

Meh

I'm a huge fan of the book series, however as the final book I felt it was a little lack luster. Even of this was not the finale this was definitely the least exciting book. However it does not ruin the series one bit. Fantastic series!!

Not the best narrator choice

Would you listen to United as One again? Why?

Probably not. While I've enjoyed the series, the narrator killed this book for me.

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

About 10 minutes into the book I almost stopped listening due to the male narrator. This is a book that is supposed to be from a teenage boy perspective, so why does he sound like a 60-year-old smoker. It only got worse with the voices used for all the other characters. I do think this narrator would be amazing in a spy novel or some older police detective role, but this was horrible. Even the female narrator sounded way too old for the character of Six. I did complete the book as I wanted to finish the series, however it's not one I would enjoy listening to again.

amazing series

I have to admit this series was way better then I even anticipated and I already anticipated that it would be a good one the author is amazing and very detailed with his work. this story captivated me all the way through! there were so many moments in the story where I did not want to stop listening and could not wait to hear what happens to the characters. the emotional bonds that the author attaches between each character where some of the best I have heard when listening to books in a long time. plus he had a unique way of making each character independently enriching as well. I have to say I am glad that I purchased these books I will definitely be listening to them again and I'm glad that he continued his story with a new series I will be purchasing that one as well I just wanted to say thank you to the author for your awesome hard work your stories were amazing and definitely help make a large portion of my time at work a lot better LOL thanks again Pittacus! !

great series

this was a great series. Hope you enjoy it. there was a new voice in the beginning which almost made me not listen to the book. I'm glad I waited it out and gave it a chance and the original readers came back in the next chapter.

I made it, book one to seven

It was a hard slog at times. Now the healing can begin. I feel like I deserve a pendant.
