Review: The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore

Title: The Fall of Five
Author:  Pittacus Lore
Published: August 27 2013 by HarperTeen
Book Description:
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 each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.

But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. 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 on 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 importantly, 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 Loric symbol—they know they are so 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.

The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.

Lorien will rise again.

My thoughts:

One of the books I am excited for every year since I started I am Number Four. And we are already in the 4th Book. Wow.

So let's jump into what I think about this book. My impression is that this is a breather book. After the exploding events of Rise of Nine, the action stuff were cut down and there's a reason for that. So if you are into this book hoping for another run of explosions and good action I think you'll be disappointed.
But I think it was justified. This book is back story I feel. And also some secrets are revealed.

That was the main focus of the book. Revelations that will solve some mysteries and open lots of additional questions. And it's so good. The way the author handled all this stuff is good. So even though it was not action-packed, I am grateful for knowing more.

Although the twist was kinda predictable. :D

I will give this book 4 whales.


  1. I'm half-half. It's both a back story and a moving forward. We get more info about their background and also more info about them moving forward. But there were a lot of actions, right? Especially in the penthouse in Chicago. That was cool - and I'm curious as to how they're going to portray it on the silver screen (hopefully!). I'm not super satisfied with the Lorien Legacies series, but there's just something about it that makes me want to know what the heck is going to happen next!

    So glad to here it's a back story! Finally I'll be getting answers.. Ugh, I hate predictability in books! But I'll read it anyway. Thanks for the review :)

  3. My thoughts exactly! Anyway, have you heard of the title of the next book? Its called "The Revenge of Seven". I think this book's gonna be one heck of a read since Seven's gonna want some revenge after you-know-what happened. xD (
