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.

Pittacus Lore is Lorien’s ruling Elder. He has been on Earth preparing for the war that will decide Earth’s fate. His whereabouts are unknown. To learn more, visit and follow I Am Number Four on Facebook ( and Twitter (

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun Read It was nice to get back in this word, see old beloved characters and meet new ones. But... I found the writing in this book to be more simple than that of the writing in the Lorien Legacies. I did enjoy this book, but not as much as I enjoyed the books of the Lorien Legacies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I cannot stress how happy I am that this book universe is getting more books and more characters. I absolutely adored the I am Number 4 series and am so glad we're getting to return to it. It didn't disappoint. The plot was, as always suspenseful and action packed. The characters were real and complex and genuine. The writing was, as always, extraordinary. He really can do no wrong with this one. Highly recommend if you're a fan!
