I am Number Four: The Lost Files: Six’s Legacy is an anecdote of what Six experienced as she was growing up with her Cêpan, Katarina. In ways, it’s like I am Number Four but this one appears a lot simpler and direct to the point. The most critical part of the book was being spotted and captured by the Mogadorians – and managing to escape. Only available in e-book format, the book is a valuable “filler” in understanding the sarcastic female character “Jane” in the movie, I am Number Four.
What I love about this book is the perspective from which it was written. A female character sees things quite differently and the situation she was placed in explains how she has become so tough and focused with her goal – find the rest of the Gardes and start the war. Of course that’s an overstatement but it’s inevitable and based on initial implied comments at I am Number Four, that’s generally where it will go. I should know, I’ve read the Power of Six prior to reading this one.
What I don’t like about this book is “I can live without it.” This story was sort of narrated in the Power of Sis and there wasn’t much to it. I guess I was simply looking for more action, more Lorien history more guidance and wise notes from the Cepans – I am Number Four material. I guess my expectations are just too high and that’s why I got disappointed.
I couldn’t find a better embed than a free chapter, see this link.
