Buddy-reading with @Liz.

It was definitely the MOST EPIC book of the series combining CRAZY ACTION scenes that explode out of nowhere and TWISTS and TURNS, which puts the characters in danger over and over and it's so intense you have to continue reading just to know if they will survive.

Too bad Nine appears only at the middle of the book.
And you know what ? I'm starting to think Pittacus Lore hates happy couples and don't want any at the end of the series.

“You have to know, from the moment I saw you outside Paradise High, I knew. I knew we were going to fall in love. And I've never regretted even a second of it. Not even now. I love you with all my heart. I always will. It was... it was all worth it.”

This book fucked my mind completely. I have nothing to say, I'm just - please let me die alone. It's too much, still too much even though I have tried to compose my thought and write this review, I can't stop my hands from shaking. What happens
Having just found this book's entry on GR - already? Holy Lord, I'm amazed! - this is how I feel:

I'm still hunting for the time machine on this one. Final book? That's what I thought, especially since Revenge of Seven finally began the long-dreaded Mog Invasion Apocalypse.

Oh wait, you didn't read The Revenge of Seven? If not, then get a copy immediately and join me in eagerly awaiting this next example of supreme excrementum sanctum-raisage.

Buckle up, mis amigos y amigas.

Yes, I'm gonna rate this

The Fate of Ten (Lorien Legacies #6), Pittacus Lore

The book is primarily narrated in first person, from the perspectives of Four (John), Six and towards the end of the book, Ten (Ella). A prologue in third person narrates briefly the story of an unnamed human-turned-Garde (later known as Daniela) as she survives a Mogadorian attack on New York.

Prologue: An unnamed 15-year-old girl, and her 57-year-old stepfather, are watching the news of the Mogadorian invasion on TV (the girl is hinted to have

Just finished this book and I think my heart is broken....

This one definitely felt like a built up for the next book but was actually really enjoyable and we definitely learn a lot about the past in this one.

Also the ending killed me and I need the next book now :(

4/5 Stars



These books always have major cliffhangers but this one was just wrong, my heart can’t take this kind of emotional damage anymore....

This book was definitely more enjoyable than 'The Revenge of Seven' but it wasn’t perfect.

Nine only appears around half way through the book which is a shame because he’s honestly the main reason why I read this series.

A change of narration would be nice, it would be interesting to be in the other characters heads

Now I have something to do this summer :P

ALSO, LORE announced that this WILL NOT BE THE FINAL BOOK. The series will be seven books long! This has been confirmed from several sources, including the publisher.
That means more Nine!

This is one of my favorite dystopian series,and as is still fantastic! The entire series is beautifully written from the first book(I am Number Four),and definitely 'til the final book of this series(I do hope)!

The ending of this book though is a total cliffhanger and shocked me completely! I just hope,I'm right with my own assumption and conclusion to what will happen next, on the next book.

Thanks to my sister,for knowing what books I love best reading.^^

Though I am no longer a paid critic and have no professional obligation to finish this turd of a series, I figure I might as well for completion's sake. I must be a masochist at heart. I mean, there's only one book left, and something might actually happen in this one... I hope. I think the series probably already hit rock bottom somewhere during books 3-5, so there's only one way to go now, right? Wait, what? It's not ending on book 6 like we were promised back when the series began? *&%$ *&%* ...more

So The Fate of Ten, 6th book in I am Number Four Series. Seriously, this is one of the few books that no matter how tired I'am at waiting yearly, I still can't get enough of it. I just have to get my hands on the new releases, every freaking year. How can I not? I started this series when I was in college and I never get the chance to move on. Sure,

That was a crazy ending! Had excitement and sadness. Now on to the series finale tomorrow!

This series is exciting with amazingly written characters. I love the plots and the series does not get boring for a seven book series.
I am losing interest in this series unfortunately. I only really continued it because my friend Katie wants me to finish the series, and I am glad I did. I think my issue is that I spaced out the books too much. I really enjoy the content of the series, but the space between me reading the books is making me disconnect. I am, however, able to get back into the story easily.

I found this book a bit slow. This book is clearly setting up the grand finale in book 7 and therefore this was just a slowe

I'm sorry, but what the FUCK was that ending?! Gahhhh!!

Okay first of all, I love that we finally got some back story to everything that happened. Not as much as I would have liked, but enough that I'm happy for the time being.

I love the new characters that were introduced and I think the next book is going to be insanely good. This one felt more filler-y and more of a set up for the final book, which I totally get, but it did also have a lot that happened.

I'm so happy about certain things and

This has by far been my favourite book out of the series! Not only do you get the insane non stop action from the previous books, but you also get back story on how it all started which I've been dying for since the first book in the series!

It was so interesting to see the relationship between Pittacus and Setrakus and to see how Pittacus' actions inadvertently put the Loric into the mess they're currently in. I also really loved getting to see the beginnings of Setrakus and seeing how he evolv

This was my favourite book of the series so far. Two books in I was not sure I wanted carry on with this series, but I am very glad I did for book is really picked up steam. In this book the invasion is just starting. The battle lines are being drawn, and secrets origins from Lorien are revealed. This book is narrated by John (Number 4), Six, and Ella. Six is her usual tough as nails self, John is settling more and more into the command position. Something that annoyed me about him in book 2 the ...more

Wowza. That was a satisfying ending in my books. I have had my ups and downs with this series but this book hit the in between mark. It wasn’t superb like how I found the second instalment in the series (Power of six) but it also didn’t suck as much as some of the other novels did. At first I thought that The Fate of Ten would deserve a 3/5 stars, but I am now more inclined to say 3.5/5 stars. The second half of the book really drew me in. I enjoyed the book just as I enjoy this series.

I've read the first 4 books in the series in 2018 and because I'm me, I haven't continued this series until this year. I really regret not continuing it then since I know I would have loved this book and The Revnge of Seven so much more.

Ok, so... nothing really happened in the first 200 and so pages! The only thing they did was talk about what they are going to do. For 200 pages. FOR 200 FREAKING PAGES!

This is for sure my least favorite book in the series. With nothing happening in those 200

That ending though oh my gosh my poor heart!!!

I have no clue what’s going to happen in the last book because this book already had a big epic fight scene so I hope it doesn’t get too repetitive in the plot.

So I finally read this second last book of a very stupendous series. And, man, it was
O. U. T. S. A. N. D. I. N. G!

Fate of Ten still shows the struggle of Garde along with their human friends, separated from each other in three different groups, against Sétrakus Ra and the Mogs.

Unsurprisingly, Pittacus Lore impressed me yet again with his book. He has a marvelously crafted writing style along with adorable and badass characters
