He also shares the story of Adam, and how he rescued Malcolm before they made their way to Dulce to free Sam. Then he tells of Adam's Legacy, and despite Nine's doubts, John says they will find him. The Garde plus Sam and Sarah play capture the flag, which ends in a victory for Nine's team.
They are attacked by a mutant crocodile which turns out to be one of Five's creations suggesting that the giant centipede which almost killed John was also created by Five. Five kills it and is revealed to be a traitor, knocking out Six and holding Nine underwater. He tells Eight and Marina that they have a chance to join him in the Mogadorian cause.

When the Guards practice together, they begin to forge a bond that they hope will be strong enough to fight their enemy. But as with any bond… you're only as strong as your weakest link and when that link comes to you with a different agenda, it can cost them one of their own.
As with the other installments, so much happened in this book that it was just one huge adrenaline pumping roll a coaster. It was heartbreaking to see a deflector in their midst, but I still hope they can win against the powerful forces they are up against. Dear father Time, Pretty pretty please could you hurry up and be already? I really have a lot of books that are going to get published then Or if you can't or won't, would you mind letting me into Pittacus Lore's mind while he's writing this book?
I truly want to know how Setrakus-Ra loses the war since he has been winning some fights. Thank you! The most dedicated fan and future girlfriend of Number Nine. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. The Lorien Legacies has a little bit of everything for everyone; romance, action, sci-fi elements and a diverse collection of characters.
The Fall of Five, which is the fourth and second last instalment was no exception however there were some point that did make this read less enjoyable than it could have been. Pittacus Lore does not hesitate with his characters. We are once again re-united with our colour cast; however it is told in the perspectives of Marina, John and Sam. John is like the leader of the group, he's guiding them through and makes the paths, we are finally introduced to Five, a little odd and oblivious too, Six is badass as usual but with a loyal heart all the same, Marina has to be my favourite character, she's utterly sweet and probably felt the most genuine.
Then there's Eight, man I love him, selfless and strong, and Nine, cocky and arrogant. But of course, we have the human allies, Sarah she's not really important in this story, but I still am no fan and Sam, he's okay, relatively likable. My main issue with this book was how many characters there were, and I mean a crazy lot. Pittacus does a decent job at evening the characters out however I can't help but feel that there wasn't much depth in them as there were so many characters.
Looking on the bright side of things, the characters were somewhat unique and distinguishable. With majority of the book consumed with character dialogue and happenings the action and actual plot line is scarce. Nonetheless when present, it left a smile on my face and me turning the pages eagerly.
Unfortunately, also due to the mass of characters, nothing really happens, most of the story, is set in one destination whereas in The Rise of Nine, it was pretty much everywhere.
I am starting to feel that the author is deliberately dragging the story across into five novels when I deem that a trilogy would have been more ideal. The writing is also rather bland apart from the action scenes.
It's rather odd but I do believe the author succeeds at writing faster paced novels if anything. Overall, The Fall of Five was rather average for me.
The action and idea was good however the pacing and large amount of characters ruined it a bit. Still, if you're looking for so fun, action on a lazy day, this series may just suit. Sep 16, Sarah rated it liked it. I listened to the audiobook of this and I'm not real happy with the casting.

Four was all wrong. Too old. It was distracting. And the others weren't right either. Anyway, that aside, I was entertained by this installment, but it is starting to get a bit repetitive. There were a few twist in this one, but nothing so much that I was really shocked.
And the writing is formulaic. I kind of wished this would have been a really epic trilogy instead of dragging out into so many books. I think I'm done I listened to the audiobook of this and I'm not real happy with the casting. I think I'm done at this point.
Really good books, but nothing too exciting at this point. Oh and I think the real turn off for me was the use of guns in this book. I understand the humans need a way to defend themselves, but I feel like using guns is kind of cheating.
Have them kick some ass instead. I did enjoy the ending and love the introduction of Adam. View 1 comment. Jan 12, Kassidy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this series so much! This book really allowed the characters to develop further. It had less action, which provided a chance for the reader to get to know everyone better. There are a lot of different important characters and I feel like they all have their own distinctive personalities. There were also a lot of twists, which I loved!
I love the direction that the plot is going and it's going to be crazy! I also really enjoyed all of the Sci-Fi elements. The action scenes are written very I love this series so much!
The action scenes are written very well and I love how everything is explained. This continues to be a very fast-paced story, but with the perfect amount of development to make you feel enveloped in it. Jun 19, Khurram rated it really liked it.
This is a really enjoyable book. The pages seem to fly by. I know it was a good book because as soon as I finished it I cannot wait for the next book to come out. Since the last book all is going well for the Grades. They are hiding out in 9's huge luxury Penthouse, complete with its own Danger room Lecture hall used for training. They have met up and even managed to re-join with Sam. John has started to accept the leadership role expected of him. Nine is his General, specialising in battle str This is a really enjoyable book.
Nine is his General, specialising in battle strategy and training. Marina is the team medic. Sam and Sarah are learning to be better soldiers. I must say Sam continues to impress me as the series progress.
Even Elle discovers part of her origin. With everything going right for them you know something has to go wrong. We learn a little more about the Mogs and Lorien as well. Especially from the extracts of the back lost files. The Lorien's seem to be more technologically advanced versions of humans, yet for all their advancements there society works the same as ours. We meet Adam for the first time and learn a little more about him again in the extracts at the end of the book.
There is a lot more swearing and cursing in this book, which could be a by-product of being around 9 all the time in his penthouse, or they have realised they are solders and the harsher language is in keeping with harsher times.
One thing I did not like about the book was in the other books they always talked about how strong the Grades were, the super strength seems to be forgotten in this book. All in all a good enjoyable book. So those of you who have walked my path with the 'youff dudes' that are the Lorien survivors may raise an enquiring eyebrow at the three stars and say 'goodness, how surprising' or should that be 'hey dude you blow me away bro, you ain't giving this book your usual ass-kicking'.
Well no, because to my surprise I actually found it a teensy weensy bit more acceptable. There were still gaping holes of continuity and reason in the thing eg: Everytime they are left alone on the page I am crying out that one of the other characters will gatecrash and stop the oily grease that oozes from the book, but those characters do not arrive quickly enough sometimes. There is an interesting new dimension with the arrival on the scene of Adam, a good Mogadorian, who was involved in the murder of number three and I can see this does add a depth to the story which was missing before.
However this does bring me to another confusion Firstly 4 and 9 had a fistfight which would have been fun This quite clearly is blown out of the water by the fact that number 4 aka John aka self obsessed dude merchant aka tosser is still alive at the end of the book whilst another of the later numbers is pulseless. Presumably how this state of affairs could now come about must have been explained in the last volume but seems mightily convenient for the plot progression and once more smacks of lazy plot change to suit the author's plans.
And by the way Mr Lore: From the beginning of the book it is obvious Five is going to either die or fall into the dark side Oct 26, Justin rated it it was amazing Shelves: But so sad.
Review to come! First 3 chapters for the price of free!! John Four. Marina Seven. Ella Ten. Malco Post-read: Malcolm Sam's Dad. In any case, Sarah please! Even though she was Four's girlfriend.
Whom she may or may not have betrayed. Someone on Facebook also brought this up: Does it mean Number Five will die or five will die? This should be one of them. Title release: The Fall of Five!

I had such high expectations. I guess it's time to explain why, despite the pain, I still gave it three stars.
I gave it three stars because it was a decent book. If I could forget my expectations and ignore how this book impacted the series, it was an entertaining read. BUT my inner fangirl came out and decimated this book. This review contains spoilers. Do not read any further if you haven't read the book. This is not so much a review as it is a rant.
You have been warned. It made me sad. As other people have mentioned, it felt like a filler book that was a leadup to the next book. Nothing really happened except for more "cliffhangers" that I'm not even sure will be answered. I finished it in hours, that's how short it was. The opening chapters were narrated by Sam and told about Adam and Malcolm rescuing him and how they escaped. I got super excited because I was really hoping that Adam would be a prevalent character throughout the book.
He wasn't. I didn't really like Four in this book. I haven't ever really liked Four. But when he wasn't whining over how he wanted to just be with Sarah, he actually didn't annoy me as much as usual. That was another thing. The author kept Sarah around. Strike 2 But anyway, these next few chapters changed from Four to Marina and they basically caught the reader up to the present situation. Five showed up by burning crop circles into fields and wrote on an article about the crop circle that he wanted to meet up.
After fighting off Mogs and meeting up with Malcolm and Sam, they all headed back where they trained together and such.
I'm not going to say what happened in the rest of the book, but don't keep reading. Spoilers are below. The whole thing between Four, Sarah, and Six just annoyed the living daylights out of me. I didn't understand what Six's problem was and the author was trying to make Sarah this badass, totally faithful girlfriend who would follow Four anywhere and do anything for him.
I felt like the author made Six such a good character that everybody was rooting for Six and John. To make up for this, the author turned Six into this moody, slightly cynical and just off kind of person. It was a shame. In my opinion, she was one of the strongest characters. Throughout this whole thing, Ella is suffering from deabilitating nightmares that were never fully explained, I guess Pitt had to leave something to build upon for the next book.
I didn't quite understand them until I finished the book and reread it. This is where I started coming up with predictions for the next book. Those will be at the end of this review. Anyway, I really enjoyed Eight and Marina's relationship. It was sweet and Marina was a good narrator. I enjoyed her POV. I also really loved Nine and Ella's relationship. I wish he had spent a little more time on them.
I love seeing the softer side of Nine and wish the author hadn't spent so much time on describing what a jerk he was. This character made me so mad. It was so obvious what was going to happen.
If he really wanted to give us a twist, he would've made Five like Eight. THAT would've been killer. But no, he had to create a character that was obviously off and weird and didn't belong.
It was obvious that Five wasn't as naive or weak as he pretended. Also, why would you give the bad Garde the best powers? Five's powers were sick. The last few chapters made me facepalm in horror. I knew it, I called it when I wrote my previous review thingy above, but I didn't really think he would go through with it. Especially after building his character so much in this book. It made no sense to me. John and Ella's dream thing filled in a lot of the "mystery" for me.
I'm pretty sure I know what's going on and what's going to happen regarding this as far as revelations go. And then of course, he has to send off BK. BK's probably dead. So two of the best characters are DEAD. It was stupid. I was steamed about that. I really wanted to see him in this book because Adam is a brilliant character. I guess it makes sense because if you add all three of the lorien legacy books he's in, you'd get basically an entire book of just Adam.
His character has been built really well. Setrakus Ra is going to end up being Ella's grandfather who was the tenth elder of Lorien. It makes so much sense. I mean, think about it. He's calling Ella his heir. Her grandfather mysteriously "perished" during the Secret Wars. Her grandfather's son, her father, was a nuthouse, creepy guy.
It makes sense. Setrakus Ra will reveal some secret from Ella's past that will crush her. This would explain how she looks in the dream world 3. The world is going to end. There's no way that there's going to be a totally happy ending. NO WAY. Not with some of the stunts the author pulled. I'm guessing that the Mogs are going to almost destroy the world, the Garde will somehow miraculously kill Setrakus Ra and the Garde will leave Earth to go rebuild Lorien, possibly bringing back a few humans.
One of the Garde will have the ability to bring back the dead members 1,2,3,8 This is the only way that they're going to win. Also, to repopulate Lorien, I suppose this would work better too. But seriously. I feel like that's what's going to happen because that's the only way the remaining Garde stand a chance. I'm thinking it's going to be Marina, but because everybody seems to be trying to make Four be a big damn hero, it could be Four as well. Also, these two characters already have a healing power, so I'm guessing it would just be an expansion upon the power they already have.
These are all just my predictions, some are a little more far-fetched than others, but still. That's all for right now, so until next time! I have high expectations for this book.
I still have a gut instinct that Five is a girl. I'm probably wrong, because as people have mentioned, it would make more sense for Five to be a guy to even out numbers 1,2,6,7,10 are girls. But I still think Five is going to be a girl. Go figure. I'm feel like a few Garde are really built up as far as legaciess go like Six, Eight, and Nine, whereas the rest of the Garde just don't seem nearly as powerful. Yeah, I know that Four is kind of the main Garde Which leads me to think he's Pittacus , but I still feel like as far as Four's powers go, he's kind of lame.
Same with Seven. She just seems weak. It'll be interesting to see how Ten grows.
The Fall of Five
I know she really doesn't have any legacies, but she's still really young. I'm interested to see how the whole "I'm Pittacus Lore" thing turns out and whether Four was right or not. I have an inkling feeling that Eight might still end up dying like the prophecy on the wall showed. I still wonder if Eight is the Garde we'll lose in Fall of Five.
Words can't express how much I dislike her character. She just doesn't work. And I really don't understand why Four has such deep feelings for her. I just don't get it. I really love Sam. I sincerely hope he doesn't end up dying. I honestly think the chances of him dying are very slim, but authors will kill off the best characters with no warning cough Jason Haley from the Heir series cough Nine is hot.
Just saying. Nine is my boy. Yeah, Eight is great and all and freaking superman, but Nine is so much better. Six is probably my second favorite Garde. She's just such a good character. I can't wait for August 27th!
Of course that's the week I have to be out of town Darn it.. View all 10 comments.

May 26, David rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Tuesday, August 27, M, Eastern Time. So I started typing a long scene by scene review for this book, but I lost it, and I'm pretty pissed. Anyway, here's my second attempt at a review. Major spoilers ahead.
So first I'm going to look at my predictions that I made back in May. Let's see how accurate or not I was. The Garde will meet Five. I was definitely right about this, and I would have been stunned if I was wrong. Five was male though, which really surprised me and made no sense at all.
Sam shows up again. Sam's a great character, and it's awesome to see him again. Something special happens when the Garde unite. But then the tenth is still out there, so you never know.
The cactus-like stone It just disappeared into the bottomless pit of things that authors forget about. Oh well. Five's Cepan is dead, but Malcolm isn't, so the Garde have an older person among them again. If I had read the e-books I would have seen this coming, but oh well. There were moments where I thought Sarah was going to die, but unfortunately she pulled through.
If only John would stop healing her!! I'm going to rant here. Just warning you, because this could get ugly. I legitimately hate it. Sarah is just such a complete Mary Sue that I want to throw up. She's got the whole stunning looks and damsel in distress quality but yet she can learns to shoot firearms in seconds and she always believes in John and supports him and they talk about how much they love each other and constantly make out, and it's just a big fat ugh for me.
I reached for a paper bag at several moments when Sarah was nuzzling John's neck and I legitimately thought they were going to sleep together at one point, which scared the hell out of me. John's feelings for Sarah make no sense. I mean, her character is nothing compared to Six's. It's not looks, because John describes Six as being just as beautiful as Sarah. It's sure as hell not personality, because Six is just awesome, while Sarah is a complete stereotypical love-interest Mary Sue.
And on top of that Six is Loric, while Sarah isn't. And Six and John's parents knew each other and joked about Six and John being together when they were older. It just doesn't get better than that, and yet John chooses Sarah. I give up. Maybe guys are as stupid as people say we are. And then because Pittacus decided that John must choose Sarah, he makes Six's character become absolutely terrible to justify it.
In this book Six is variously mean, freakishly OOC by being BFFs with Sarah, unbelievably ice cold towards John despite their past, mean to poor Sam, who deserves way better, and just never seems anything like the awesome, kick-ass, Loric girl that John and Sam became so attracted to in Power of Six.
The demise of Six's personality is without doubt one of the worst parts of the book, second only to the awful, cringe and barf-inducing lovefest between John and Sarah.
OK, rant over now. I promise. Now for a character-by-character analysis. John's character has never been amazing, but it just gets worse. His attraction to Sarah and indifference towards Six is frankly repulsive, his obsession over Sarah disconnects him from the rest of the Garde, and I just couldn't take it after a while.Contents [ show ].
And now Eight is lost forever.
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. Nine is nearly killed by Five before Eight teleports in front of him and takes a knife to the chest instead. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page. Looks weird, like a manhole cover. The American cover of The Fall of Five. They go to Arkansas and see Number Five from a distance.
