Plot summary[edit]

The story is told by various members of the Garde: Number Four (John Smith), who is on the run with Sam, Six, and Bernie Kosar (aka Hadley, a Lorien Chimæra), and Number Seven (Marina), who's hiding at Santa Teresa, a convent in Spain. While John, Number Six and Sam try to stay ahead of the Mogadorians while searching for the other surviving Loric, Number Seven searches for news of John after his heroic battle at the school that came at the end of I Am Number Four.

Reception[edit]

Reception for The Power of Six has been mixed to positive,[2] with the School Library Journal writing that although the book has "a lack of character development, pedestrian dialogue, and uneven continuity... the nonstop action and violence-packed fight sequences will keep fans of the first novel happy".[3] Kirkus Reviews gave a similar review, criticizing the character development.[4]

Booktracks[edit]

In 2011 it was announced that The Power of Six would be adapted by New York tech startup Booktrack to produce an enhanced e-book version of the novel.[5] Enhancements to the novel would include sound effects, synchronized music, and automated scrolling through the book.[6]


Film Adaptation[edit]

No news on the internet is found for the release of making it into a movie.
