I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies Series #1)

I Am Number Four - Pittacus Lore Take a group of nine children from a distant planet full of good and their evil opposition of resource using and abusing monsters add in a bit of teenage romance, some serious magical powers to find a new life on Earth. The story starts with Four who is being stalked by warriors bent on killing all of the good aliens in order to take over Earth and its resources. There is a fight to keep them from succeeding and Earth safe. This story is pure escapism. Yes, it is an old tried and true Sci Fi story about good versus evil with a bit of romance thrown in and directed at teens, but it was a fun way to pass a few hours. A lot of people always take these books too seriously. I don't think it is supposed to the NEXT GREAT NOVEL of the century, just something to take your mind off things and get lost in a wonderful adventure. Can't wait for the next one!
