Autumn 2010 Kids' Next List
“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
The perfect companion book to the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series!
I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Zero Hour is the fifth collection of action-packed novellas from Pittacus Lore. Initially published separately as digital originals, these three stories are now together in one print volume.
Lost Files #13: Legacies Reborn gives a look at the Mogadorian invasion from the perspective of Daniela Morales, a human teen who’s shocked to discover aliens are attacking New York—and that she suddenly has the power to fight back.
Lost Files #14: Last Defense reveals what happens to Malcolm Goode after the warships descend. To get to the president’s secret bunker near Washington, DC, he’ll have to fight his way through a war zone.
Lost Files #15: Hunt for the Garde picks up after the events of The Fate of Ten, following the stories of three different Mogadorians. One will do anything for redemption. One has a thirst for blood. One questions everything.
You know about the invasion of Earth, and the Garde who will do anything to stop it. Yet there is still so much to learn. The stories in Zero Hour will help you get the answers you seek, but only the Garde and their allies can save our planet.
The I Am Number Four series is perfect for fans of science fiction adventures like the Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancey and the Beautiful Minds series by Alexandra Bracken.
