Hi. Um, excuse me, but I need directions to August 2014 urgently. Can you point the way? Someone? Anyone? *crickets*

Oh. Nobody to talk to but the brick wall. Guess I'll start chalking up my guesses and speculations!

Title Possibilities: (spoilers based on previous entries here...)

* The End of Seven
* The Fight for Ten
* The Ghost of Eight

Edit #1: All wrong, as of now. The title is The Revenge of Seven, and if it means what I think it means, I think I will have a new favorite book of 2014 by the tim

Ok just finished this book and I am seriously pissed by the ending! SAM!? HE DESEVERED TO HAVE THAT PIKEN RUN HIM OVER BUT NO INSTEAD HE GETS SOMETHING ELSE! WHY CAN'T THE HUMANS DIE AND LET THE LORIC LIVE THEIR LIVES! I CAN JUST FEEL THAT I AM NOT GOING TO BE THRILLED WITH THE LAST BOOK! Reading this I was under the impression this was the last book and I am very thrilled to know now that there will be one more! Can I just say that I seriously feel like Pittacus Lore took

I almost not read it. I thought it was the last book of the series. I want to read it on weekend so that I can take my time reading it. But… I really love this series and started reading it and finished it at the same day. It was riveting and I just forgot about everything around me and focused on reading the book. What happened? I didn’t get my chores done and got hungry. I won’t change a thing. I WANT BOOK 6! Tell me it going to be early next year!!! Or you can give it to me now!!!

If BK ends up dying someone's in for a world of hurt, preferably five... One does not simply kill the dog/Chimera.

Things I want to happen
Five dies, and Seven kills him.
Adam and four will kick some Mog ass.
Sam and six will make out some where.
Setrakus Ra will die, and everyone will dance around his dead body(and Five's)


It has a name. it's offical seven is going to get her revenge on five (hoping I'm not wrong)

Guys, I must say this, I actually like the cover art design. It's got a really quiet feel to it, and gives off an ironical aura of peace, because we all know that the series is headed deeper into war. The green moss looks vibrant and the symbol is very webby(my word for web-like).

Although...the title is long and looks like it was squeezed in like a deflated orange. And it covers the interesting symbol.


So....everyone think Sarah's gonna do something in this book?

"'Holy shit,' he says. 'Did I just do that?'"


Revenge of Seven started exactly where it ended in Fall of Five and the story develops quickly from there without further recaps of what had happened which would've been boring. Even though it'd been a while since I've finished Fall of Five, I can still understand it without any problem. Ro7 was maintly told by Ella, Six and John alternatively.

Overall, Ro7 was a good read and an easy and fast one at that. But, Revenge of Seven was
WHAT THE HECK SAM. WHAT THE EVEN HECK. NOW I HAVE TO WAIT A FULL MORE YEAR FOR THE NEXT BOOK. AND ELLA AND NINE AND EIGHT AND FIVE AND OH MY GOODNESS EMOTIONS. the only thing is that Marina wasn't really that kickass, which sucked. the whole book is based on Marina and she didn't even get her own POV, like what.

even if I am currently still writing reviews, I don't have the brain power to muster up one. I'm just saying, if you're looking at this, and you haven't started I Am Number Four yet or co

An Opinionated look at:

"Pittacus Lore's" The Revenge of Seven

By Eric Allen

This series is really the gift that just keeps on giving... if you have a fetish for pain, or some unholy drive to punish yourself over and over again. Now, for the record, the biggest complaint about my reviews of these books that I get from fans of this series is that "it's for young adults, not you, so STFU you (insert your favorite expletives and/or insults here)". I call this an opinionated look at this book, because

The story didn't just end like that, did it??? That's just so unfair...I thought I was only starting to read the climax of the story and then BAM!!! it ends??? I didn't even see which part of the story gives the book a reason to have that title. What am I supposed to do now? :,(

Also, I couldn't help but be bothered about why Ella (the youngest of the Garde) is the most eloquent of all three narrators (John and Six are the other two.) It felt like reading the story from a Cepan when the narrator

What I want to happen in The Revenge Of Seven is:
Five dies
Sarah realizes she doesn't like four anymore and falls for Sam instead
John is broken hearted but then six confesses to John how much she loves him and vise versa then they kiss
John and six both develop an AWESOME legacy like bringing back the dead and they bring back 1,2,3,8, the 10 elders his father and mother ect.
Have and awesome battle

Can't wait till August!!!!!

El mejor libro de la saga hasta ahora, no hubo escena mala, acción página tras página, mas descubrimientos sobre Lorien y Mogadore.
Y lo que viene parece que será épico, la invasión es inminente!

Το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο μου φάνηκε αρχικά λίγο αργό. Στο πρώτο μέρος του δεν γίνεται σχεδόν τίποτα, ενώ βρίσκω τις συζητήσεις των ηρώων λίγο βαρετές. Πιστεύω όμως ότι σιγά σιγά πήρε τα πάνω του σαν βιβλίο. Ειδικά το τέλος μου άρεσε πολύ. Ειλικρινά δεν περίμενα αυτή την εξέλιξη, όταν ξεκίνησα το βιβλίο σκεφτόμουν ότι αυτή η σειρά κάπου με έχει κουράσει. Τώρα, μετά από αυτό το τέλος δεν γίνεται να μην διαβάσω και το επόμενο! 3.5/5 αστεράκια

August 2014 will not come quick enough... someone please let me know if you invent a time machine?

So, things I want to happen in this book:

- Adam POV, people. I cannot express how much I love Adam POV. His character is the best developed out of all of the characters in my opinion. So, Adam POV. It speaks for itself.

- Ella to be rescued. I don't know how I'll cope if Ella loses her innocence. And please, please, please don't let the vision actually happen...

- Marina being a badass. It needs happe

[UPDATED] Ok, who wants to kill Five? I know I do! I hate him for what he did to Eight! I'm excited to see what Seven does about it. Also, I wanna see what Nine does. I hope none of them die. Except Five. I know they might need him to save Lorien, but if the others can get Fives chest from the Mogs, then they can TOTALLY kill him! Why isn't the release date sooner?!? August?!? Come on Pittacus Lore!

Nine please don't die. YOU CANNOT DIE!!!!!!! So, I still absolutely hate five, but this idea came

Note: Many spoilers in this review!!!

Just finished the book.

Still maniacally grinning over the last few paragraphs:

"With a massive WOOMF, a wave of telekinetic force hits the Piken and knocks it into the air. The beast's muscular legs flail wildly. It lands back-first on top of a stop sign, the pole impaling the beast right through the heart.
That didn't come from me.
I lower the couple safely to the ground, toss the fire escape aside and turn in the direction the telekinetic blast came from.

The proper title should be 'The Lament of Seven'

I felt this book was dragged. I had high hopes of the story would be wrapped up in the end, but actually it didn't. What happened in this book was nothing new to me, except the last part about Six and Seven discovered some powers in the Sanctuary. BTW, I freaking loved it !
For the most part, this book was like ...

John Smith and his friends escaped
John Smith and his friends fought back.

If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

But yeah, it was my favorite book in the series. SO INTENSE!

You'll get more revelations every single chapter.

After reading the last page of the book, I was like, "WAIT WHAT?! THAT'S IT?"


Seriosuly, tho. Why end the book like that?! WHY, PITTACUS LORE? WHY?!

Well, yeah. That's me shaking Pittacus Lore. LOL

I just finished the book. I was extremely lucky to get it a few days early and I'll try to keep this review as spoiler free as possible. This book felt like part Star Wars, part 2001: A Space Ossedey and also part Michael Bay (trust it is far better then his wet dream explosion fests). Throughout the book as I read, I was given alot of hope and dread. The book balanced it extremely well. And also did I forget to mention how awesome and insane this book was?

How do I feel about the book? Pissed off!
I don't even know who Seven IS. How could this be his/her revenge? Oh, it must be on me for being so stupid to think there was going to be a conclusion.

Ok. It is not over. I know there is another book coming.

I know a lot more than I did before. But. Good grief.

The Revenge of Seven is, as of now, the best instalment in the Lorien Legacies so far. It is action-packed with an intricate plot, strong characters and well-developed mythology. I need the next one now -- and luckily, there's going to be another one after that one.
