The Fall of Five

The Fall of Five
by Pittacus Lore

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy

Synopsis:  The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?  John Smith-Number Four-thought that things would change once the Garde found one another.  But he was wrong.  After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared.  Now they're hiding out in Nine's Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.  The six of them are powerful, but they're not strong enough yet to take one an entire army-even with the return of an old ally.  To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team.  More important, they'll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.  And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five-a crop circle in the shape of a Lorien symbol-they know they are close to being reunited.  But could it be a trap?  Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it's too late.

Review:  This book continued to format of multiple narrators without any headings which made it quite confusing.  It took me a while to even figure out which of the several characters were narrating the story from the beginning.  I do appreciate that each book in the series moves forward and major events happen that seem to be leading to a major confrontation with the Mogodorians to defend Earth.  I am looking forward to see where the next books head and how the conflict is going to be resolved.
