HARPERCOLL

The first book in a pulse-pounding new series that’s set in the world of the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series. The war may be over—but for the next generation, the battle has just begun!

It has been over a year since the invasion of Earth was thwarted in Pittacus Lore’s United as One. But in order to win, our alien allies known as the Garde unleashed their Loric energy that spread throughout the globe. Now human teenagers have begun to develop incredible powers of their own, known as Legacies.

To help these incredible and potentially dangerous individuals—and put the world at ease—the Garde have created an academy where they can train this new generation to control their powers and hopefully one day help mankind. But not everyone thinks that’s the best use of their talents. And the teens may need to use their Legacies sooner than they ever imagined.

Perfect for fans of Marvel’s X-Men and Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave, this epic new series follows a diverse cast of teens as they struggle to hone their abilities and decide what, if anything, they should do with them. As a spin-off of the bestselling I Am Number Four series, those familiar with the original books and newcomers alike will devour this fast-paced, action-packed sci-fi adventure.

I didn't think there were going to be more stories about the Garde on Earth, and I'm glad I was wrong. The shift in perspective between the stories of the Ten and the newly gifted Human Garde makes this story seem both familiar and strange. I look forward to many more stories in this eries!

Months after the defeat of Setrakus Ra, the remaining Garde are forced to join an academy to hone their skills and hopefully one day use them for good.  Unfortunately, with great power comes great responsibility. A saying that some of these children do not fully understand. They use their new-found abilities to wreak havoc and assist those who are intent on gaining wealth and power. Now these young Garde must learn from their mistakes before it is too late! At first I didn’t really want to read this book, since the Lorien Legacies was really terrible (aside from the first novel.) Fortunately, my curiously got the better of me and I decided to give this book a shot. Halfway though, I found myself actually enjoying this novel. The beginning was kind of slow, and the point of view shifts could be confusing at times, but once you get used to it, the book becomes kind of good.

I can’t find the words to explain how amazing this book is! Pittacus Lore’s follow up series to the Lorien Legacies books is off to a great start with Generation One. The story revolves around familiar characters from the author’s previous books along with new and interesting faces. Not much of the Lorien Legacies cast returns, however, this new group of heroes surely makes up for it. I’m sure many fans of the Lorien Legacies series are skeptical about Generation One, but I assure you, it’s still filled with the same content; action, adventure, humour, sarcasm, mystery, aliens, and powers beyond our abilities. I too was worried, but the more I read, the more I really enjoyed the creative and unimaginable storyline. I found that the story started off a bit slow, but after that, I couldn’t put the book down with all of the cliffhangers and excitement at the end of every chapter. With the end of one problem came another equally intense and exhilarating one so you’ll always be engaged and never get bored. Generation One is definitely a must-read. 5/5 stars.

I read the I am Number Four (IANF) series last year and it was amazing! I am so excited that we get generation one, I am hoping that some of the old Garde will be in this book like number nine who was my favorite ! I'm really hoping that this book will be just as good as IANF and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
