Goodreads Synopsis:

The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?

John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.

But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they’re hiding out in Nine’s Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.

The six of them are powerful, but they’re not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More importantly, they’ll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.

And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it’s too late.

The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.

Lorien will rise again.

My Review:

1. An okay ending to a some what boring book.
2. Four is still an awesome character!!
3. Sarah: UGH! STILL HATE HER! Don't really know why!?
4. Five: I hate him. I was suspicious of him from the start and he turned out to be EVIL!
5. Six: you bad-ass chick! I love her attitude and style. I hope her and Sam get together.
6. Sam/father: reunited and it feels so good! They are so cute together.
7. Seven: Still think Marina's annoying, BUT she may be growing a little on me.
8. Eight: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Why you die!?
9. Nine: I love you! And I wish you were real! sigh.
10. Ten/Ella: Hmmm..... No words for her yet.

            Overall, an interesting book. Not as good as the first one, but it still had it's moments. So all the grade members have gathered at Nine's place in Chicago where they are trying to train and prepare to fight Setkarus Ra. While training, each member has gone through their chests to see what they have and what they can use. All of them have different things in their chests and it's hard for them to figure out what each object does. As they are laying low and monitoring the computers for any Loric activity, they come across symbols drawn in fields. The symbols belong to a grade member (number five) and the gang sets out to find him/her.
