The sixth book in the thrilling, action-packed, New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series! For years the Garde have fought the Mogadorians in secret. Now all of that has changed. The invasion has begun. If the Garde can’t find a way to stop the Mogs, humanity will suffer the same fate as the Lorien: annihilation.
There is still hope. When the Elders sent the Garde to Earth, they had a plan—one which the Garde are finally starting to understand. In the climax of The Revenge of Seven, a group of the Garde traveled to an ancient pyramid in Mexico known to their people as the Sanctuary. There they awoke a power that had been hidden within our planet for generations. Now this power can save the world . . . or destroy it. It will all depend on who wields it.
As expected, The Fate of Ten is an intense, action packed, edge-of-your-seat, thrill ride. It is impossible to put down due to constant cliffhangers and the fast paced writing.
The plot alternates between Four in New York fighting the Mogadorian invasion and Six in Mexico battling for the Sanctuary. Since all the rest of the characters (well, with the exception of Ella) are split between the two locations, having additional perspectives would be unnecessary and distract from the plot. Also, these two characters play key roles in the events that occur.
After spending so long with the characters preparing for the war and acting in secrecy, I felt as much of a shock as they did all of a sudden being in the midst of a war and so much happening so fast. You would expect that a penultimate book in a series would just contain a lot of buildup to the final battle, but so much occurs in The Fate of Ten and a surprising amount is resolved. Which makes me wonder what crazy events will take place in the final book…
If a lot happens throughout the whole book, even more is packed into the ending. There is an extremely infuriating cliffhanger and a shocking event is dropped in at the last moment. My biggest question is: what will be happening next?
I highly recommend this series.
