It's finally here.

The glorious end of the Lorien Legacies.

And holy bloodydamn goryhell, how far this series has come from its beginnings in I Am Number Four. More than any of its predecessors, United As One is dark and intense and unremitting in its pulse-pounding action. It's the Mockingjay or Deathly Hallows of this series, by which point it's all-out war, and everyone's out for blood.

Including our heroes. Including our perennial Boy Scout, John. Now he knows how Marina feels, having lost his

“I am not fucking extinct,” growls Nine.

Seven years that I've been into this series, it gives me something that I couldn't figure out until now. I just know I love Lorien Legacies wholeheartedly even if The Power of Six and The Revenge of Seven are not my cuppa. Yet every character is a part of my life and I don't want to let it go, no matter what. Nine is always my boy. And I want to see smile on John's face for one last time.

Anyway, when I picked this book up, I didn't expected to meet its u

Great book. Dark, Intense and Awsome. Every book in this series seem to be improved slightly on the last. I love the character development in the series. There were points in the first couple of book I was thinking to myself about John/4 will you please grow a pair and stop acting like a love sick teenager. Of course this probobly not fair as he actually was a love sick teenager, and had not quite grown into his heroic role as yet. I am actually glad that the books were done this way it made me ...more

I think this is not the last time we're going to read a book about the Garde.
I swear Pittacus Lore is brewing something...

Annnnd to end it like that?

Those bottles of black oils...
Then John giving the human Garde the chimaeras...

Or its just me making excuses. I don't know. But I know lots of you guys wants more, like me.

Though mostly comments.

Mini review:

It's not all that surprising that I rated this 2 stars. Ever since The Fate of Ten I was starting to lose interest in this series. I found the writing style to be plain and a majority of the characters to be annoying. I especially did not like the direction this series was going.

This book was not much better than The Fate of Ten. The new characters didn't really play that big of a role. They were irrelevant in a way. The pace was really off. And the ending was anticlimactic. By the e

Words can’t describe how happy I am that this ride is finally finished. This series hit rock bottom and I’m not sad to watch it go. Lorien Legacies had potential, but the writer’s lack of skill and imagination ruined it all. The final book is usually the one with most action and excitement, but we got neither.

This book was dragged in the first half, nothing happens besides the usual stuff - Setrakus Ra goes into hiding and John learn to master his new power. Garde plan their counter strike and

I have some issues with it. I mean, it's so rarely that a book or anything meets our expectation, so somehow I knew that this series wouldn't be so different. But still, I couldn't have asked for a better ending. Goodbye to yet another great series.

Whoa this series was one long, crazy ride! I have to say I was somewhat disappointed with the the slow pace in this last book, and didn't really like how it all wrapped up, but this is still such an insane series and I love all these characters so much and it's so weird that it's over.

But I love it so much, and it's been with me for so long. And I can't believe it's over.

This book definitely ended the series with the bang I was hoping for! The rest of the series was so action packed and for this book, it felt like all that action was jam packed together for one hell of a finale!

I think my favourite part of this book was seeing how far this series has come since the beginning! This final book takes a much darker turn, so much so that it makes you doubt that any of the characters will get a happy ending other than Setrakus Ra. It's intense and gritty and I loved

ugh another series come to an end :(

Really loved this final book in the series! It was a tad slow at the beginning setting everything up but it pays off in the end. Really kept me on the edge of my seat near the last parts of the book, and I feel like I'm satisfied with how the series ended.

It's sad to say goodbye to such an amazing series, with all the action and the awesome cast of characters :(

Wouldn't mind a spin off series though......

This book made me almost cry so many times! But it also made me really angry. Still, I'm satisfied with that ending and I think I'll go read all of the lost files and then generation one. I still wonder why the author calls themself Pittacus Lore, cause technically that was John so did John write these books? Is that how I am supposed to interpret that?? I DONT KNOW

I've stuck with this series since it was just I Am Number Four that was out and it's a little surreal that it's over now.

I very much enjoyed this book but I'm a little underwhelmed with some of the results. Not that I wanted more death or destruction, but it just felt like we were cheated a bit with that whole climax.

Some things were left unresolved and others weren't handled as I thought they should be and that's why this gets 4/5 and not that solid 5. I'm super sad that the series is over

I thoroughly enjoyed this series! I cannot believe it took me this long to start reading this series. This is a fast paced series with very well written characters that readers can really enjoy liking (well, other than the bad guys lol). The good part of waiting so long to start reading this series is I was able to read it from start to finish quickly so cliff hangers did not bother me! :)

I still feel the book should have ended a book or two ago, but this was quite a ride. I couldn't put it down. It was very fast paced. It has a great ending to go with a well done series. I know there is a new series starting from this ending and I won't be going on with it. I feel content and complete with where things stand now.

I did enjoy how the killed Setrakis Ra - well done. The end is very Arthurian Legend type of ending.

United as One has the unfortunate task of concluding this epic series. It has to wrap up all the story lines and give readers the satisfying ending they’ve been pinning for for years. I think it does all that and more. United as One picks up after the even

Actual rating: 4.5

I loved this book. The ending was so satisfying. So bloody satisfying. I guess 7 books was a stretch as we all know, big things always happen towards the end. Regardless, I loved this book and I am so happy I stuck till the end for this book. I am sad that I will not get to read about John or the garde anymore. So sad, indeed.
"Sydney gets it the worst. ... Images of the opera house in flames, the bridge behind it collapsing..."

Finally, a U.S.-centric sci-fi/alien invasion book that acknowledges the existence of Australia and the likelihood that at least Sydney will be attacked! But I'm a little biased, so let's move on.

Sometimes with series, the quality of the books declines as the series progresses. I am very pleased to say that, in my opinion, this is not the case here. The authors kept with their usual style, wh
