Synopsis: The Fall of Five is the fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?

John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would would change once the Garde found one would change once the Garde found one another. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.

But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they're hiding out in Nine's Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it's too late.
The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.
Lorien will rise again.

Review: After neglecting this series for a while, I finally decided it was time to pick up the latest addition to this series. It took me a while to get back into the story but I loved it! The book starts right away with intense actiony stuff! I loved seeing all the garde members grow and mature and how they were all dealing with the effects of the battle in New Mexico. The book was a little slow in the beginning but the action really picked up in the end. My only complaint was that the betrayal of a certain character was very obvious but in the grand scheme of the series, it was a great twist that I had not been expecting. I'm interested to see where we go from here. There are so many new ideas brought into to play and I'm really looking forward to how this will affect the remaining garde. I also sympathized with Sam and Sarah who felt like useless humans most of the book. I'm so proud of them both and how far they've come. OH OH!!! How could I forget Sam and Six- AWWW! The ending was so intense that while reading it I was like, oh no, oh no, this book's gonna end on a low note. It was so shocking and I'm so nervous for the next book! Our heros are scattered and shaken and on the run once again.

Until next time fellow readers, may the force be with you.

xoxo Sarah
