Great first book I finished it in one day because I was so excited to finish it and find out what the ending had in store and I can tell you the ending was the best part of the book since it's a cliff hanger! So theres more to the story

This book is amazing!!! It is action packed. At the beginning it has a slow start but at a brisk pace the book will overcome you. Out of the four so far this isn't the best so get through this to get to all the action.

I am Number Four is the first book in its series. It is about Number Four who is an alien from the Planet Lorien. He had come with his Cepan and the other 8 Garde and Cepans on a ship a long time ago to defeat the Mogodorians who had hunted down his people and to save Earth from them.. He is living in Paradise, Ohio as John Smith and his "Dad" or Cepan as Henri. He developed powers as he grew to save Earth from Mogodorians. As his time went on in Paradise he fell in love with Sarah a girl from his school and became close friends with Sam another kid from his school. The Mogodorians are hunting down the Garde in order of number because that is the only way they can be killed. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 are dead. Number Four is next.

This book follows the story of John, one of nine aliens with powers from the planet of Lorien. The opposing alien race - Mogadorians - have ruined Lorien, and the only remaiders of the race have fled to Earth. The Mogadorians have ruined their home planet as well, as they did not deal appropriately with issues associated with the growth of their civilization, a problem Earth struggles with today. The Lorien aliens can only be killed in order, and the book begins with the death of Number Three.

John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is from the planet Lorien. He was sent to Earth as a child with eight others to escape the invading Mogadorians, who had destroyed their own home planet. He is protected by a Warrior/Guardian, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), and has developed extraterrestrial "legacies", including enhanced strength, speed and agility, telekinesis and the power to transmit plasma light through his hands.

Number Four and Henri are Lorics and have been living on the run from the Mogadorians for a decade. When they move into the small town of Paradise, Ohio, things start to happen. Number Four ("John") falls in love with a girl named Sarah (who, by the way, is a human), he starts developing his Legacies, and the Mogadorians are locking in on him. Number 1, 2, and 3 are all dead, killed by the Mogadorians - and Number 4 is next.

The back:
Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live amoung you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong,and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived amoung you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am number Four.
I am next.
