Goodreads’ summary : They know about the charm.
They know about our legacies.
They caught Number One, Number Two, and Number Three.
They killed them all.
I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.
We are growing stronger.
We are starting to come together.
We are ready to fight.
We are the last defense.

The Power of Six is the second book in the Lorien Legacies series.
I really enjoyed this book. There’s a dual point of view which is really interesting.
First, we’ve got John POV, like in the first book.
But we’ve also got Marina POV. She is number seven and is kept in a covent, with a cêpan who seems to have forgotten why they’re on earth, their mission.

John is running away with Sam and Six. It seems pretty obvious that six’ presence will only cause trouble between the 2 boys. Sam really likes her and we discover during the book that John likes her too. Which is weird, because Henri told him that Lorien can only love one person. This person should be Sarah.


On their run, they discover while reading Henri’s letter that Sam’s father knew about the Lorien.
While Six is struggling to get John’s chest back, he decides against all to contact Sarah. This wasn’t his best idea.

Meanwhile in Spain, Marina finds out that the Mogadorians know about her and are watching her. She met Ella and instantly likes her as a little sister whom she must take care of. We discover that Ella is Ten and was on the second ship, alongside Crayton. Crayton looks like a Mogadorian and scared the hell out of Marina more than once.

I like this book. I found it even better than the first one. The plot is way better, more complicated.
The additional Lorien characters are interesting. I really like how we got to discover the Lorien world, too. The dual POV brings something to the story. We get to see how to separate stories collapse into a big one, the Lorien destiny. I can’t wait to read the next book.4 stars

I read it a while ago, and I’m not really happy with this review. I still need to buy the sequel.
