Waiting on Wednesday #55 - The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick: The Power of Six

Summary from Goodreads:
I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. 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. How can I know? 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 equipped 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 may 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. One of six still alive.
And I'm ready to fight.

I read I Am Number Four a couple of weeks ago and liked it. I hope this one is better.


  1. I started I Am Number Four but didn't finish it. It just didn't grab me at the time. I'll have to try again one of these days. Happy reading!

  2. Just finished "I am Number Four" today. It was a good book, but not as great as I kind of hoped it would be. Still, I think I'll read the sequel too once it comes out :-) !

  3. I'm really excited for this one too. I read Iam Number Four right before the movie came out and I loved it (much better than the movie). I hope six is in it more, shes my favorite.

  4. I have seen the movie for I Am Number Four and really like it! The book is on my TBR I'll have to add this one, too!

    Great pick!
