The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

This is the second book in the Lorien Legacies series.  I really enjoyed I Am Number Four and was so excited to read this one!  Here is the Goodreads blurb:

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 was a great sequel to the first book.  We get to see the story from more points of view and we get to see more about the others that John Smith is trying to find.  The book bounces around between perspectives and is fast paced with lots of action.  I really can't wait for the next book.  This book is appropriate for readers 14 and up due to violence.  You can find out more about the series by visiting the series website.  You can add this book to your Goodreads by clicking here.

The Power of Six earns 4 Fairies for a fast paced, action packed adventure!

I haven't read the first one yet. I'm so behind on my TBR list. This one sounds really great.
