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?”
