Power in numbers will save us all.
1. I want four to ditch Sarah (she's an annoyingly stupid brat!) and go with Six. Or not go with any girl, he doesn't really need the drama right now.
2. I want Sam to be safe. He is such a cute and funny character.
3. I kind of hate Seven and think she should just stop talking. Her character just annoys me.
4. I hope Sam's father is alright and hope they find him.
5. Mostly, I WANT MORE OF NINE!!!!!!!!
So far, I am very pleased with this series. This book is told from three point of views, Four, Six, and Seven. It was interesting to be inside the head of three characters and get to see everything from different views. After the fight between Four and the Mogs, Four has finally gotten a chance to recover from his injuries with the help of Nine. They're in hiding, laying low and trying to figure out what the rest of their items are in their chests.
Meanwhile, Six and Seven are with Ten and Clayton traveling to
to try and find another Lorien member; Eight. However, it is difficult to find
him since he is well guarded by the police of Indian, who think Eight is one of
their gods. He is hiding in the mountains and the only way to him is through a
well guarded fort of officers. We also get to hear about the arrival of the
Mogs Leader who is scary and dangerous. Overall, a good third book. However,
the plot really didn't go anywhere. India
