Beez: The power of six (Lorien Legacies#2)
Pittacus Lore

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.

This book is the sequel to I am number four, which i ever read. I have seen the movie which is awesome with Alex Pettyfer (swoon). I tried to read the first k but i nver found a proper ebook and it started out boring. As i the plot was good but the writing wasn't great. I liked the movie wayy better.

This book was quite better. I felt thouruly engrossed and thriller especially because of the action parts. I fell more in love with Six and Nine. Fur kida irritated me i this one. I also liked Sam. Cntrary to what people say that he is a waste of space, i feelthat smeone like him is definately eeded. 
What i quite liked about this bok waa the styleof writing. I liked how he switched between the view points of Marina and John.

Lets review:
Now that the school has blow up John, Sam ad Number Six are on the run from the mogdorians and the FBI. While on the other part of the world, we see Marina, Number Seven who is desperately trying to find out her identity no thanks to her cepan. John and company face a few problems, blow up a few planes, train with six which always result in them being beaten by six and keep searching for something. 
Marina is trying to find out about the rest of the garde while trying to wake her cepan and tell her more. 
There are super fun fights and exciting parts in this book. I for one, don't like the romance between Six and Four. I liked Sara and even though after this book less so, i want Sam with Six. 

I felt the characters in this book were being especially stupid and careless. Just like in Switched, there is so much they can do, yet they don't. And more of my anger is directed at four. He's some sort of leader but he doesn't deserve to be one and he makes such stupid decisions. I was really pissed at him. 

Though i sympathized with Marina i felt that she could have doe soo much more earlier. Also i completely disliked her cepan who is a a bag of useless bones. Also i don't quite understand that how so suddenly she just changes her mind in the end of the book ad starts finally heliong Marina. I mean, hello she was there all your life, what were u doing then??

Lets discuss the terrible love triangle here- Four, Six and Sara.
Really? Soo stupid.
If the author wanted to make two garde fall in love, then why on earth did he introduce Sara in there first book. And if John loves Sara, why is he falling for Six? Who Sam his bff like btw. 
This was one of the most terrible triangles ever and i hated John when he liked Six but after the Sara incident my thoughts had become more to 'i'll allow it'.
But really, why??
I ship Sam and Six all the way.

Best part in this book-
the fighting.
Honestly, it was cool. With all those super powers, especially Nine's, i was enjoying.

Thats all for this review. 
I'll say this i liked this book very much until i read this review and all its flaws suddenly came to me. Honestly this review is amazing and soo good. A definite read even if  haven't read the book or plan to.
