I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Nine's Legacy by Pittacus Lore
It's Raining Men 2012 Challenge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Goodreads Says: Number Nine—when John frees him from his cell in the power of six, he’s ferocious, reckless, and ready to fight back. But being held captive changes a person—even a Lorien. See what Nine was like before his capture, and read about his dramatic escape from his point of view.
In I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Nine’s Legacy, discover the story behind Nine. Before meeting John Smith, aka Number Four, before being held prisoner, Nine was hunting down Mogadorians in Chicago with his CÊpan, Sandor. What happened there would change Nine forever...
Quick recap: In The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, #2), Four (John) and Sam are at the Mogadorian base trying to find Sam’s father. While there they find Nine, another Lorien Garde, who has been kept in captivity for about a year. This is his story leading up to capture.
I really liked this book. It explains a lot as to why Nine was so eager to fight the Mogs and why he came off cocky at times too. It’s a short, so I can’t really say much. What I will say is that this story never felt light. It felt serious and you were always expecting something bad to jump off the pages. Nine seems to have the most heart wrenching story so far. He is a strong and interesting character. I can’t help but like the world Pittacus Lore has created. I’m definitely counting down the days to read the last installment of this series!
