The Power of Six - Pittacus Lore (2011)

Clare lent me the prequel a while back and I liked it. I saw the movie, and it was pretty decent. (certain not like the butchery that was made of Eragon) So I bought this because I had to know what happened next. Pittacus Lore is a pseudonym adopted by the author and he is included in the story and maintains that the book is real and the names have been changed to protect the Garde. Rather reminiscent of Lemony Snicket and his Series of Unfortunate Events.

I liked this book, there was never any lack of action. Good, solid action-packed little book. Good for a fast read and a change of genre. Definite thumbs-up.

Four, Six and Sam leave Paradise after they wrecked the school in the last novel. They are trailed by police and are heralded as terrorists. Four opens his chest and it contains powerful gems that he doesn't knwo how to use . A dual story is also being told; Seven is living in a convent in Spain, and her Cepan has adopted a life of worship. Four, Six and Sam try to outrun the police and the Mogodorians and are ambushed a few times. They end up having to enter the Mogodarians lair to claim back their Chests. There they meet Nine. Six then leaves to help Seven who is being attacked by the Mogodorians. Six and Four plan to meet up in a few weeks.
