The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?

John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.

But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they’re hiding out in Nine’s Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.

The six of them are powerful, but they’re not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More importantly, they’ll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.

And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it’s too late.

The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.

Lorien will rise again.

Surprise. Surprise. This book sure knows how to surprise me. I was really shocked on how the book turns out. And I was still shocked right now. And a little bit SAD. *Sigh*

SoI was really excited what this sequel will bring. I find myself curling my toes in anticipation on who Five is. I don't know what to expect, but every time FIVE was being mentioned, I wanted to finish the whole book. And I mean.. FAST! And I never expect the book to end that way. So yeah, it's a damn cliffhanger as well! Argh! This books are killing me.

Well in this book the readers are able to meet FIVE. Well I really don't know what to say. He was kinda' naive. I mean, it seems he was sleeping all his life and he doesn't know who his enemies are. It's kinda weird for me. All are agitated just talking about the Magadorians but FIVE? He's kinda... Cool with it. But I must say his legacy is pretty awesome. The ability to take on the qualities of whatever he's touching. It's kinda unique right? Not until... Nah! Just read it guys.. I don't to spoil anything about it. Hahahah.


As for the Cons: Well what I don't like about this book is the way the story was being narrated. There are moments I need to reread it realizing it wasn't FOUR narrating the story. There is an alternating narration in this book, so it's a little bit confusing at times but still it was an awesome book.
