Goodreads: The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore

The Fall of Five (Lorien Legacies, #4)The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adventure; YES, that is exactly what I'm looking for now which I only obviously found through books, and The Lorien Legacies is just one of the books on my MUST READ SERIES list.

I could say that I'm not a big fans of science fiction, not to mention there are a lot of books about supernatural and magical worlds being published recently, science fiction is not on my top list but Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore is the exception.

This series is just getting better and better. The Legacies are just like some kinds of elite soldiers from different planet (which means literally in the book). But the best part of this book is the characters.

Now we could sure that Four is totally a leader, he is like a backbone of the group but without big head type of leader, even he is not sure whether he could lead his friends or not, powerful and humble at the same time.

While Nine is a strategist, I really like the chapter where he trained with Eight and Marina (Seven), he seems really know what best for the battle and totally well trained, with his wicked humor and moody personality, Nine is just like a time bomb that could explode anytime but with Four on his side, he will be alright, besides he could easily get along with Ella while the others don't have any idea what to do with that little girl.

Six, gosh, this girl is just the hottest girl from the group, not to mention being well-trained and battle-experienced, but at the same time, she is also the lonelinest person among them.

Marina (Seven) and Eight. Among them, Seven and Eight could be considered new in the battle but not someone could be underestimated either. That is why they have Nine to train them while Four busy to lead them. Marina's power is the opposite of Four, Six or Nine which fast and deadly. Marina's main power like healing, ability to see in the dark and breath underwater is not fast and deadly but useful and irreplacable, something that even Four, Six and Nine would depend on. Eight's main ability is teleportation which is really usefull for battle, but he is not as well-trained as Four or Nine or Six that's why his death in the book is a big lost; especially for Marina, which is ironic because she has healing power but she is the one who should witness his death. However, the death of Eight also save Four, Sarah and Sam's lives because the scar finally woke Four up from his nightmare where he saw Setrakus Ra defeated them with the help of Ella.

Ella which we earlier considered to be the tenth legacy is the youngest from them all. Though in the book we found that initially she is not meant to be transported to earth but I'm sure she is the key of the whole series which is not mentioned much in The Fall of Five but as the climax she is kidnapped by Setrakus Ra, and also there is Four's weird dream about her.

Now, here comes the Five. Well, that is what I like and I don't like about good book. Good book will resemble reality very much and in reality there is no such a perfect world and The Fall of Five is one of the example of imperfection of world. We have been waiting for Five to appear, we expected too much from him but in the end he disappointed all of us.
