The Rise of Nine – by Pittacus Lore

I’d been keeping an eye out for this book, the latest in a series that so far comprises I Am Number Four and The Power of Six.

John Smith, Number Four of the handful of the survivors of Lorien, has spent his life waiting and hiding. Hiding from the enemy aliens who pursued John and the handful of remaining Garde from Lorien to Earth, and are determined to eliminate every last one. Waiting to come into his powers, or legacies. Waiting to find the other Lorien survivors, the rest of the Garde, who are all charged with finding a way to defeat the enemy Mogadorians. Waiting to avenge his people and find a way home.
