The first installment of the Lorien Legacies series, I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, had us quaking in our boots with excitement, as we learned of nine alien teens who must battle the Mogadorian horde to save Earth and awaken their home planet Lorien. But the second book in the series, The Power of Six, has even more action because John Smith and Six have honed their Legacies — or superpowers — and don’t spare one evil Mogadorian. Even Number Seven and other Lorien aliens get in on the battles, ripping Mogs limb from limb. The action-packed imagery of the The Power of Six lifts off the page, and you’ll kick yourself for reading it so quickly, but with superpower-fueled battles like this, you won’t be able to stop yourself.
