Get ready for some sci-fi that will blow your mind! In this book we accompany one of Lorien’s chosen ones which were sent to earth to someday restore their planet and race. His name is Number 4, although we may know him as Daniel Jones or John Smith. He was sent to Earth along with 9 other Loriens, all who have special powers which will one day restore their earth. Only problem is that the race that attacked and exterminated most of their species, the Mogadorians, are looking for them. Thankfully one of the elders from Lorien cast a powerful protective spell that guaranties that they can only be killed in the order of their numbers. Number 1 was killed in Malaysia, Number 2 in England and Number 3 in Kenya. He is Number 4, and he is next…
I strongly recommend this book to all readers who enjoy action, sci-fi, mystery and romance. You can count on my word that this book will keep you entertained the whole time and that you will want to read it again, just for the pleasure. So if would like to see some alien butt being kicked (as well as some jerk’s butt), then this is the book for you.
Since I believe that you will like this book a lot then I will recommend you read the rest of the series:
Book 1: I Am Number Four
Book 2: The Power of the Six
Book 3: The Rise of Nine
Book 4: The Fall of Five – Coming out in August of 2013
Note: This book is available at the library! You can also buy it for your Kindle or on iTunes.
This is the second book in a mystery/thriller series called The Diamond Brothers. This series was written by Anthony Horowitz, the same author as the Alex Rider series, so if you like that series you will love this book.
Nick Diamond lives with his brother and they are very poor. His brother is a private eye but he hasn’t had any cases for a while and they are surviving on beans and toast. He is visited by the police because they want him to go undercover to get some information, but
Nick refuses. Then, on a field trip to a museum, he is framed for stealing a precious gem and sent to a high security prison. He needs to prove he isn’t guilty, but first he needs to escape from prison.
Overall this is a really good book, and I would recommend reading this book. If you are a fan of mysteries or even action thrillers with some added humor, this will be the book for you.
