Staff Reviews

When their home planet is overrun and decimated, nine babies are sent to Earth to grow, train, and eventually save their home. This goes awry when they are found by the same species that destroyed their planet and are forced into hiding, always on the run. The first three have been hunted, John is next. For the sake of his planet, the rest of them have to survive. For lovers of Divergent, Eragon, and The Hunger Games.

“John Smith arrives in Paradise Ohio and hopes that this will finally be the place where he settle down and be a normal teenager. This isn't so easy considering he's an alien developing supernatural powers on the run from the Mogadorians who have destroyed his home planet and are hunting him down along with the eight other surviving Loriens. A novel that hits the ground running and doesn't let up until the very end, this first book in the Lorien Legacies will cause readers to stop and think: do they really live among us?”
— Grace Firari, The Velveteen Rabbit Bookshop, Fort Atkinson, WI


Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among 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 among 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.
