While Four and Six play hide and seek with the Mogadorians and U.S. authorities, number Seven is caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

The Power of Six picks up almost immediately after I Am Number Four ends and is told from both Four and Seven's point of view. The multiple viewpoints slow down the story and it drags a little at times, but on the whole both story lines are interesting and both characters engaging.

It contains:

  • Kissing (on cheek and mouth, plus a remark about a tongue stuck in another person's mouth)
  • Using powers to heal
  • Some Language (similar to first book)
  • Drinking / drunkenness
  • References to paddling as punishment
  • Torture
  • Injuries (blood)
  • Death and killing (references to hacking off body parts and other vicious killing - but there is no real gore)
Some of the characters make unwise and selfish decisions that seem extraordinarily immature considering everything else these individuals have been facing.

The Lorien Legacies series is young adult science fiction.
