I am Number Four
If you enjoy action packed books. This is the series for you. This series has a really cool story line about a bunch of teenagers trying to destroy an army of aliens trying to kill them and take over the world. These aren't any ordinary teenagers though. These teenagers are from a different world where they have different powers they call Legacies. These children's legacies are different from any of the other ones from Lorien. These teens powers take after the original ten elders. The most powerful one having every legacy. The most powerful one's name was Pittacus Lore. Each of these teenagers started out with a Cepan to teach them about their legacies, and to protect the teenagers from the Mogadorians. The Mogadorians are the group of aliens trying to take over earth because they ran out of supplies on their planet because it is dying.
The last of the Garde were the ten that landed on earth days after the fall of Lorien to the Mogadorians. The ten of them each had a cepan that would protect them and teach them about their legacies. Each of the Lorien Garde had certain powers called legacies, and each of the Garde had special ones that were based on the original ten elders. The strongest elder was able to acquire every legacy possible while the others had a ones that were already chosen for them. Each of the Garde also got a chest of inheritance that had things that would help them. Before the Garde landed left Lorien there was a charm set on them, and this charm was that if you were out to kill the last of the Garde you couldn't just kill one at random it would have to kill them all in order. After one of them died there a scare was burned into their skin.
The Mogadorians are another interstellar race like the lorien. The Mogadorians are on this hunt for other life supporting planets because theirs is dying because they mistreated their planet. They didn't do anything about it until it was to late to fix their planet, and because of that they are attacking other planets to get resources for theirs. The Mogadorian leader's name is Setrakus Ra. In the books he is described as having purple skin, larger than the other mogadorians, and having scars all over his body. The Mogadorians can dress themselves up to look like humans, but they don't look a whole lot like humans without putting a hood, or glasses over their faces.
