Lorian Legacy Chronicles
Pittacus Lore -Publisher-HarperCollins - 9/23/11 -406 Pages
John is a strong character that keeps to what he belives in. He sticks with his friend, Sam, even though he isn't very strong and is an ocasional trouble. From the planet Lorien, it was invaded by Mogadorians ten years ago, and he is one of the ten sent out to save the planet, after he developed his legacies. However, numbers one through three are dead. He's next. Being hunted. So, joined at the side of Six, he fights for his planet to hopefully one day return to it and bring it back to its previous-war state.
Six (Number Six)
Six is by far much more powerful than John. She has more legacies that are more developed. She fights for the same thing as John. She doesn't have as much desires as him. Both have lost their Garde, or their protectors meant to be with them until they develop their legacies. Six has passed through that and now has trained and trained, while John was still developing his legacies. Without Six, John would be dead. Without John, six would be dead. So, they are at eachother's sides.
Sam (Sam Goode)
Sam is the "earthling" that has been helping John and Six out. His father was taken by the Mogadorians since he was helping the Loriens get safely to where they needed to be. He has trained to be better in combat and now strives to help them get to their goal.
Marina is Number Seven. She doesn't know much of her backstory from Lorien since her Cepan never got around to telling her. Now, its too late for her to turn back, since the Mogadorians had found her and hunting her down. Mariena is kind, gentle, but also ready to fight when its needed. She knows how to stand her ground.
That being exactly what they do, trying their best to meet up and fight together. However, meeting isn't exactly easy. Being considered a terrorist, you have to be in consistant hiding from police forces, SWAT teams, or just everyday people.
So, going through much struggles, John loses his chest. The very thing that can save him from his death, or could cost him his life. So, he soon goes to the Mogadorian's cave, a giant cave system containing everything they have. This leads to John and Six leaving eachother, with Six going to find Seven and John going to find his chest. This leads to the climax, with both parties getting into enormous fights against the Mogadorians. They both win the fighs, however both lose friends. Marina, number Seven, loses her only friend, Hector, in her fight. John loses his best friend, Sam Goode, while fighting. The story wraps up with John and Nine escaping the cave and Seven and Six walking away from the battle, going to try their best to meet up soon.
All the main characters are put up against the Mogadorians- John, Six, Sam, and Marina.
Setrakus Ra is the leader of the Mogadorians, the most powerful one of them. He forces the members of the Garde (Numbers) to have visions of fearful things. He is now on earth to fight against the Garde. This sets up half of the book for fear and intimidation, also exitement of what comes next- also being what most likely sets up the next book- the rise of Nine.
