Nine, eight, seven. All that are left. Of nine Loric, or aliens, sent to defend Earth from a deadly enemy, only seven are left. If you have read the series Lorien Legacies by Pitticus Lore, then you know what I’m talking about. Book Four, The Fall of Five, recently arrived in book stores.

The Mogadorians destroyed Lorien, the Loric’s home planet, and came to Earth to conquer. Because the U.S. Government benefits from the high level technology the Mogadorians brought with them, government officials believe the relationship is a partnership.

By The Fall of Five, it’s clear the Mogadorians control the U.S. government. All that protects the world from complete take over are eight Loric: John (aka Four), Five, Six, Marina (aka Seven), Eight, Nine, and Ella (aka Ten), and two humans, John’s friend, Sam, and John’s girlfriend, Sarah. In The Fall of Five, readers meet Five.

The Fall of Five begins in Chicago. After John, Six, Marina, Eight, Nine and Ella unite, they make plans to find Five before the Mogadorians. The group receives an online message insisting they meet him in Arkansas. Once he joins them, the team intend to confront the Mogadorian leader, Setrakus Ra.

The chapters in each novel are told through the points of view of different characters. Each character’s voice is different, allowing the reader experience events through different views. The characters may be aliens, but they possess human qualities. The connection readers feel with John, Six, Marina, Eight, Nine, and Ella allows readers see the defense of Earth through their eyes.

To avoid being confused, it’s necessary for readers to read the first three books prior to readingThe Fall of Five. While these books are captivating, the subject matter is mature, and due to violence and foul language, this series is recommended for ages thirteen and older. If you like science fiction and dystopia, The Fall of Five, and the entire series is not to be missed.
