Pittacus Lore takes us to another set of new perspectives this time with his prequel (sort-of) I Am Number Four Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies to the I Am Number Four series which garnered a five-star rating from The Daily Patrick.
I bought this book last Christmas because my (rich-kid) cousin asked me to choose a book that she will buy for me as a gift and I chose this because I just love the series and if I buy Rise of Nine, I would want to collect the rest of the sequels which would cost me a lot of money. The thing is I do not want to buy a book that is in the middle of series. It has to be the last or the first or all of them. That is why I decided to buy this one.
Now let’s us go back to the book.
The book is divided into three parts:
- Six’s Legacy. She’s pretty awesome and badass and all of those but her character is still kind of flat to me—as flat as her Cepan. This is where the saying, “Like mother, like daughter,” considering the fact that the Cepan stood as their parent. This part is the most boring. Two stars.
- Nine’s Legacy. In this chapter, we jump on to Nine’s shoes as he and his Cepan tried to live their lives to the fullest while trying to maintain caution at the same time. As Nine meets a charming girl that swept him off his feet, the threat of the Mogs increase. The ending also leads to where The Power of Six ends—Nine’s meeting with Four. Two stars.
- The Fallen Legacies. This is actually interesting. In this part, we are in the perspective of a Mogadorian child named Adammus who is the son of a General. He tells the story on how he witnessed the killing of the first three members of the Garde—One, Two and Three. Five stars.
The last part of the book is actually a modern myth. What I love about it is that the story still happens today. Take this for an example, your son wants to be a poet but instead you force him to become a doctor. There is the fear of the Mogadorian to fail his parents so he sacrifices his own wants but unfortunately, in the end, his desires emerges slowly. The Mogadorian for me is a hero because he tried to save everybody’s life, and he was only being consumed by fear—his dragon—that is why he couldn’t take action.
This book is informative. It will answer a lot of questions in the series. If you’re a big Pittacus Lore fan, you have to read this. If not, read it anyway.
It’s time for me to go. Ciao! xoxo
