Review: The Power Of Six
By Pittacus Lore
Source I own it
My name is Marina, as of the sea, but I wasn't called that until much later.
John (#Four), Sam and Six are on the run. Not only from the Mogadorians, but from the law as well. After the incident in Ohio, the three fugitives are considered dangerous terrorists. Meanwhile we get to meet Marina (#Seven). She's been living in a convent in Spain and with her Legacies developing and a weird man hanging around the convent her life is about to get a lot more complicated.
***Some small spoilers ahead***
Oh man! What does it say about my intelligence that I love these, horribly written, un-thought out sad excuse for a book, books?! There is so many convenient things that are never truly explained that happen for the sake of the plot and I just eat it up. Oh sure, I raised an unimpressed eyebrow at several plot holes but all in all these are just fun crazy books. This one has much more action and craziness going on and as soon as it really got going I was flipping pages so fast I couldn't see those plot holes anymore. One of the things that bothered me was how faceless the Mogadorians are. Yeah, we get it they're big bad guys, but they're killed off like baddies in a video game. I have a hard time truly fearing or even caring about these guys that supposedly are so evil they "easily" took over a planet. I'm glad that we got a glimpse of a baddie leader at the end it gives me hope that I might actually be scared of the "bad guys" and have more reason to root for the Garde. And that cliffhanger ending! Seriously? Ahhhh!
John(#Four): Same old # Four. Typical wandering eyes guy. ;)
Sam: Oh, Sam! I'm freaking out on your behalf!
Six: What's not to like about a kick ass heroine with a heart of gold?
Marina(#Seven): This will be very interesting. She's not much of a fighter and none of her Legacies seem to be pushing her to be one.
Adelina: Well, at least she came around in the end.
Ella: Don't ask me how I didn't see that one coming. Interesting plot twist.
Crayton: Another interesting twist. I hope he helps the Guarde.
Sarah: That Beotch! Hmph!
Would I recommend it?
Yep, all the bad writing and ridiculous plot holes aside, I would.
