Description: I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.

I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.

And I'm ready to fight


Mini Book Review: I didn't enjoy it as much as I am Number 4 but it was still a fast paced fun story. I think the real problem with it was the character of Number Seven who was just a blah forgettable character. I did enjoy some of the secondary characters in her storyline, but not her.  I found I skimmed her chapters just so I could get back to John and Six who were far more intriguing.  Their storyline is moving along nicely and there are some lovely fun light moments interspersed within the intense on the run plot. John is a loveable character who you cheer for even when he makes stupid mistakes and Six is the kick ass chick that I would love to be.  I also liked the development of Sam's storyline and I look forward to finding out what happened to his Dad. The ending is fantastic and has left me counting down the days until the next installment comes out.
