Book Review – Generation One by Pittacus Lore

generation oneThe first book in a pulse-pounding new series that’s set in the world of the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series. The war may be over—but for the next generation, the battle has just begun!

It has been over a year since the invasion of Earth was thwarted in Pittacus Lore’s United as One. But in order to win, our alien allies known as the Garde unleashed their Loric energy that spread throughout the globe. Now human teenagers have begun to develop incredible powers of their own, known as Legacies.

To help these incredible and potentially dangerous individuals—and put the world at ease—the Garde have created an academy where they can train this new generation to control their powers and hopefully one day help mankind. But not everyone thinks that’s the best use of their talents. And the teens may need to use their Legacies sooner than they ever imagined.

I enjoyed this but it really didn’t get going til right at the end. There are too many new characters and not enough explanations about what’s going on – you’re left to assume a fair bit. I’m looking forward to more though as the end held real promise about where this is going.

I recently bought the Lorien Legacies box set as it was cheap 🙂 and I am really looking forward to having an excuse to reread them.  They’re not always the most complex  books, but they are a lot of fun, well written and action packed.  I especially enjoyed the latter books – I am Number Four suffers a little for setting up so much of the premise much like Generation One, actually.  I also love the concept of the Mogadorians being among us, and Lorien being quite like Earth.
