Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly memo that is hosted by Breaking the Spine Blog.
This week I am featuring The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore. Although this book came out yesterday, I thought it would be worth a mention on my first ever Waiting on Wednesday meme post. I very much enjoyed I Am Number Four (both the movie and the book were amazing) and I am very much looking forward to getting stuck into the second in the series….
So more about the book….
Release Date: 23rd August 2011
*** SPOILER ALERT ***
The below blurb may give away spoilers from the first book in the series, I Am Number Four.
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.
