John Smith is Number Four, and following a massive battle in Paradise, Ohio, he joined forces with Number Six. Their victory inspired a fellow Lorien named Marina, aka Number Seven, to step forward as well. She's certain it's the sign she's been waiting for. The sign that the time is right for the remaining teens to come together, to fight the Mogadorians--and to win.
"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
