We bought this book for our family as soon as it was released this fall, but thanks to a terrible round of Rock/Paper/Scissors, I had to wait until my daughters were done reading it before I could add it to my list.
The Rise of Nine is the third book in the now expanded I am Number Four series. Perhaps in the void left with the end of the Harry Potter and Twilight Series (both books and movies) the temptation to expand the story and thus the profits was too great to stick to the original trilogy format.
Luckily for readers, the author and alien hiding among us Pittacus Lore tells great stories. The Rise of Nine is no exception. The story is gripping, thrilling and rushes the reader towards the ending only to leave them wanting more.
