Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Power of Six, Pittacus Lore's second instalment in the pulse-racing Lorien Legacies series - now a major movie franchise for Dreamworks.
'We are the last defence.I 've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened to John Smith. 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. 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 ready 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 might 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. And I'm ready to fight.'

great talking book, if you liked the first one

This picks up from where 'I am Number 4 left off', so don't attempt it if you are not familiar with the first one. I am half way through and really enjoying it. Moves at a decent pace and some new characters have been introduced. There are two narrators this time, which makes it really easy to follow the plot - a female voice for number 7 and the same male voice who read the characters in the previous book (he does a great job of personifying the different people - never any confusion as to who is talking or what is happening, though Sam's voice is a little whiny). Entertaining, though not high brow. For those that enjoyed the fist book or movie, you will not be disappointed. Mainly aimed at the teenage market (super powers, chase scenes, frissons of light hearted romance), but I am 42 and enjoy this kind of easy listening unpretentious book. Number 4 and 6 have teamed up, and are evading the Mogadorians as best they can, who are hot on their trail. Simultaneoulsy, in Europe, another of the Lorian children has been tracked by a Mogadorian and is desperately trying to escape capture, with a full description of her life to date since the ship arrived. Some nice details that link in with the first book and shows decent pre-planning by the author. More plausible than the first book in many ways. Looking forward to the next installment.

hard to stop listening too! very good

Great story, enjoyed the narration. only negative was I really didn't like it when the man did the woman's voice - sounded like a drag act or something and made it hard to picture the character as she was described.
