A book combined with Six’s, Nine’s and The Fallen’s Legacies all in on paperback. (Legacies originally published as eBooks.)

You know we’re out there, living among you.

You know we’re waiting for our day to come.

You have seen the power of our legacies.

You know this is why they hunt us.

You may think you know our stories.

You are wrong.

We each have our own story.

We know the time has come to share them with you.

Our legacies are your only hope.


The first and second books are about Six and Nine’s pasts. In the Lorien Legacies, we meet Six and Nine when they are own their own and have already developed their legacies and are already totally badass or crazy. These stories gave me insight into life as an alien and let me tell you, it is not easy. They are constantly scared for their lives, knowing they must be cautious yet at the same time wanting to lead a normal life and its hard to find the balance. Though similar, the two stories are not repetitive and provide insight into the respective character’s lives and end pretty much where they get picked up in the other books.

The third story was my favourite and also the most interesting. It is from the point of view of a Mogadorian. You weren’t expecting that, were you? I’d previously thought of the Mogadorians as just an endless army, not as people, or aliens rather, with families. I’d never thought that each soldier would have a wife and children who would go to school. It didn’t help me like them anymore, though. Except for the main character, but I can’t say why without spoiling, though you can probably guess.

Through the perspective of the Mogadorians we find out what happened to One who clearly got all the bad luck, Two and Three, filling in the gaps. The story ends in a dramatic way that can either be picked up later or ditched but I really really hope its the former.

These stories have the same non-stop action and unputdownability I have come to expect from Pittacus Lore and I can’t wait till the next collection is published. These stories keep you on the edge of your seat and are super addictive.  If you haven’t yet read I Am Number Four you really need to. Now.

Have you read these stories? What did you think?
