From the Back Cover
Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.
Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .
I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others—including John.
But so are they.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York—but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.
But they'll have to fight us first.See all Product Description

The hard cover version is amazing. Touching of the wrapping paper around the book (which you can use as a bookmark) is like touching sand. It is a really nice feel and it give a personal touch to this book. On the right side (where you open the book) the words Lorien Legacies are written and can be seen at any moment when you read the book. Under the wrapping paper you have an amazing Gold logo of what I guess belong to Nine. The logo is even carved in the cardboard like if would be in any of the Garde's leg. I definitely recommend this version of the book which will look really good in your collection at home.
The story (may contain spoilers if you haven't read the 2nd book (The Power of Six)
Well... at first it did disappoint me. Each chapter you jump to a new Garde member (actually you jump between 4, 6 and 7). It's pretty annoying since I only read one chapter every night before I go to sleep and I know that I will have to wait 2 to 4 days (chapters) before I hear back of that member. I would have liked more if we could have stay with one character for 3 or 4 chapters at a time. Although, I do understand that this is due of the two or three stories are over lapping in time (you will see what I mean when you read the book).
At first I thought this was the last book of the series but after reading a review on amazon.com I saw there will be 6 books in the main series (you can buy more book if you want to know what happen to One, Two, Three, Six, Nine).
The story continues where it left of in The Power of Six.Read more ›
