Plot[ edit ] The story centers on the conflict between two extraterrestrial species: the Loric and the Mogadorians.
The story opens with a prelude that follows Hannu - the alias used by Number Three, one of nine Garde children hiding on Earth after their homeworld of Lorien was invaded - residing in Kenya where he is killed by Mogadorian assassins under the command of General Andrakkus Sutekh.
Most of the book is told in the first person by Number Four, who takes the name John Smith.
There, John befriends conspiracy theorist Sam Goode and "adopts" a dog identified by its name tag as "Bernie Kosar". He also meets and is attracted to a fellow student, Sarah Hart, who is working as a photographer. Sarah's ex-boyfriend, football player Mark James, is a bully who torments both John and Sam. John uses his "legacies", which are akin to superpowers, to fend off his attackers and rescues Sarah.
In the darkness Sarah does not see John use his legacies, and he emphatically warns Mark not to talk or to let his friends talk about what happened and that he will punish Mark severely if Mark or any of his friends talk.
See a Problem?
Sarah and John's relationship develops. Henri continues training John to use his legacies, now with an increasing sense of urgency. Henri is unsettled, and tells John that it is not safe to stay. He is also concerned as John is late in developing his telekinesis, a power that he will need to fight the Mogadorians.
Later, it is revealed that Sam has seen enough to arouse his suspicions, but John allays them by bluffingly 'admitting' to being an alien. He finds out more about the magazine Sam reads by borrowing a copy. Sam speaks of his belief that his father has been abducted by aliens. Henri discovers where the magazine is printed, and drives the two-hour car trip to Athens, Ohio, to find out more.
John attends a Thanksgiving dinner with Sarah's family, but worries about Henri, who does not answer text messages. In his agitated state, John's telekinetic power manifests, though uncontrolled, and he leaves. He calls Sam for help, and they take Sam's father's long-unused truck and head for Athens, where they succeed in rescuing Henri.
During the rescue, Sam is made fully aware of John's and Henri's alien secret, and John's legacies develop significantly. On their return, Henri insists they leave Paradise.
So really -- why. I know!
Ao that the adults accompanying the children have a purpose!! Also, the author doesn't seem to want to refer to them as slaves or servants, which waters down the whole situation and makes it even more convoluted.
The aliens got their powers as a gift from the planet for protecting it and reversing the damage they did to it. Of course, the servant species works just as hard but they get no 'magic. The children are protected by a 'charm' that means they can only be killed in order.
Why a charm?
This is what I mean about mixing genres. First it's science fiction, but instead of using any understanding of science to explain the situation the author leaps to magic because that doesn't need to be explained!! After all, he's writing a children's book so who gives a frig?
There are a thousand more creative ways to say why they must be killed in order. Or even that the race hunting them is methodical and hunting them in age order since age dictates when they get their powers.
Or that they are impossible to identify before they manifest their powers. It was just like he reached the fastest conclusion possible and then stopped thinking, job done. The children represent no threat.
I Am Number Four
The aggressive alien race is interested in earth, but they're still dedicating most of their time to hunting these nine stranglers. When you wipe out earth you're going to get them anyway, guys. What's with the obsession?
The charm breaks if any of the children come together. They go through pains to stay scattered. One of them deliberately breaks this so they can gather together to make a stand.The Mogadorians have brought an enormous beast called Piken, and smaller, but still deadly, creatures called Krauls.
His hands light up and he can't control them. After this story, Malcolm tells his own, about meeting Pittacus Lore. More Mogadorians come in, and Sam baits them into the training room by declaring that the girl they are looking for—Ella—is this way.
Four starts to leave, fed up with Five's theatrics, but Five reveals that he was never going to kill Nine all along, and takes off his shirt with difficulty, revealing that Nine had shoved a steel pole through him while he was still in metal form.
John and Nine escape from the Mogadorian base and head to Chicago, where Nine's penthouse is located. Five wishes he could meet all of the Garde together and his mind is "officially blown" when he meets Sarah, their human ally. Bernie Kosar and Malcolm keep them at bay while Sarah and Sam go to get weapons.
Marina confides in John that she has tried to get over the war and all the death and destruction but she just can't.
