I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1) by Pittacus LoreNine 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.

This is a list of characters appearing in the Lorien Legacies series of young adult science fiction books, written under the pseudonym Pittacus Lore. Originally there were ten Lorien Elders, but due to the Secret Wars; the conflict between the Loric and the Mogadorians, the tenth Elder had supposedly died during this time. There was a prophecy which said that an unknown evil that will destroy and take Lorien by surprise. This soon led to Pittacus Lore's evacuation protocol for the nine Loric children that were supposed to assume the Legacies and Inheritance that will exceed their predecessors; this would happen when the time comes. When the time was near the Elders left Lorien; Pittacus Lore at this time went to seek out Malcolm Goode, he told Malcolm everything he is needed to do. It is suggested that each of the nine Loric children will assume the Inheritance and Legacies of one of the Elders, therefore one of the nine Loric children will assume the title of Pittacus Lore.

The events in this book are real. Names and places have been changed to protect the Lorien Six, who remain in hiding. Take this as your first warning.
Overall, I really enjoyed it. Although it started slow and took a while to find its pacing, I am Number Four is based on a pretty cool story and had some awesome special effects, especially in the fight scenes at the end. John Smith is one of nine children sent away to earth from their planet Lorien, after a destructive race called the Mogadorians, annihilate it and all their people. However, the Mogadorians track down the Loriens hiding on earth, and execute them in numerical order. John is Number Four. Like the others, John and his protector, Henri, have to keep moving to constantly avoid the Mogadorians.
Number Four , also known as John Smith , is one of the ten Loric children who escapes from Lorien when the Mogadorians invade, and is one of the six remaining Garde. Number Four spent his early years on Lorien, and was raised by his Grandparents. When the Mogadorians begin to invade the planet, arrangements are made to evacuate the future Elders. Four is taken to an airstrip, where the Loridas Charm is placed on him and the other Garde and they are flown to Earth. On Earth, Four and Henri get separated from the others and go into hiding.
