Description

Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others—including John.

But so are they.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York—but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.

But they'll have to fight us first.

Praise For The Rise of Nine

PRAISE FOR THE I AM NUMBER FOUR SERIES:“Number Four is a hero for this generation.”
-Michael Bay, director of Transformers

“A breathless page-turner of a sci-fi novel that will have readers rooting for the teen alien who must save himself, his human friends, and the planet. So, gear-up sci-fi fans, the battle for Earth is on and there’s a new kid in town!”
-Amazon.com, Best Book of the Month Review

“There’s genuine suspense…it’s easy to get lost in the world of the sweet teen from another planet.”
-Chicago Tribune

“Terrifically propulsive.”
-Booklist

“Action–packed.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Riveting.”
-The Horn Book

“This is a can’t-put-it-down book.”
-Justine Magazine

“The action is taut, the characters are fascinating, and the fact that the teens are slowly finding one another and learning about Lorien secrets is sure to yield an impressive all-out battle down the road. This series continues to head in interesting directions.”
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Lore picks up and expands on a strong premise that originated in the first novel. An intriguing potential romantic triangle brewing between John, Six, and Sam adds layers as they search for answers.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
